!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I was unpacking my suitcases this afternoon, and John called to tell me that he did some checking around and found a guy in our town who would fix my computer for me. I wondered why not just take it to the same guys who fixed it last time. He said, "no, I really trust this guy. He will even come to the house and fix it for you." Before I even had a chance to listen to all of the warning bells in my head that statement brought on, he said "In fact, he's at the house now. Go answer the door." I opened the door to find JOHN standing there!! I think that I laughed and cried all at the same time and took a good 30 seconds to actually think to hug him! My hands are still shaking so badly I can hardly type... Some incredibly sweet friends of ours from our church in Florida bought him a ticket to come. He gets to be here for a whole week! John had called a friend from work to pick him up at the airport and drop him off at the top of the driveway. I don't know when I've ever been that completely surprised!! Ethan is absolutely thrilled and is glued to John's side as we speak. The three of us made our way over to the big house and just surprised the life out of Loretta, Reni and Mike. And the dogs. You should have heard the yelling and crying and laughing going on... Ethan did a great job pulling off the surprise. OK... I'm off to go stare at my husband for a while and pinch myself that he's actually really here... talking... and breathing... and... HERE.
