Alas, One Last Minute Summer Trip!
Alas, I will be traveling tomorrow with my three youngest children to help my Mom and sister move out of the town they've lived in for the past four years while my sister has attended college and now graduated. It was a last minute decision hedging on whether or not my car needed major work, etc. so here I am at the last minute driving the 12+ hours to go help out. Hopefully, it will be fun and an adventure for the kids. As I drive by the Floyd, VA exit I will be waving to and thinking of Colleen And, I'll be thinking of my dear friends, Beth, Carrie and Laura as I drive within an hour or so of each of their towns. If only I had time to stop at each one and say hello, have a cup of coffee and give each one a hug. These last three women, along with others from a former online group, have been my friends through thick and thin for the past 9 years. I've met all in person on various occasions and it hurts to not be able to stop when they will be in such close reach! Ah well... I'll be back online next Monday so I'll see you all then. You will all be in my thoughts and prayers as I drive by your various exits.
