They Spent the Night

Last night Abby and Mikayla came over to stay. Linda came, too, for our once a week visit (normally on Tuesday's but, since I was sick all week, she came on Friday). Steve went to Winterset for a meeting with his family.

Abby brought a DVD of the 'Mentalist', and we watched two of the shows. I really like that show, Abby loves it. We let Mikayla stay up a little longer than usual since they didn't get here till 7:30 or so.

Mikayla can't say Linda, so she calls her Nina. Before going to bed, Abby gave Mikayla a breathing treatment. She coughs when she runs and then coughs at night. The doctor thinks she has a touch of asthma. I hope not. So far, they cannot tell if she's allergic to anything that starts it off.

When Abby said it was bedtime, Mikayla came to me and hugged me and said 'Night'. Then she did the same to Linda. Next she trotted off to the bedroom and got into bed and went right to sleep. Linda was amazed. Her kids never went to bed that easy.

Not me, I usually sleep a couple hours, wake up, sleep a little more, wake up, etc. I think I need L Dopa. Then I could get some deep sleep.

After Mikayla drifted off, Abby and I gave each other a neck/shoulder massage, which was fantastic. Pretty soon, Abby fell asleep on the couch. Linda and I watched 'Everybody Loves Raymond' and then Linda went home. Overall, it was a great night.
