We have exactly five more days before we leave on our trip to Arizona. And I have so much to do and so little time to get it done! I am excited about getting on the road, but anxious because I am not ready yet. And on top of getting all the little and big things done that need to be done, my son and his family just rolled into town with my grandchildren for a visit!
They are staying at a motel in our hometown, about 45 miles away. We just don’t have room in the trailer for five more people, and there is no furniture or hot water in the house. Tonight they are going to visit my mother, and my daughter-in-law said that Owen is so excited because he thinks he is coming to see ME!
We spent today running errands in Carrollton, about 30 miles away. There was a Fedex package that needed to to shipped, the unemployment office to fill out some paperwork, to the library to pick up some IRS forms, Wal-Mart to get some prescriptions filled. There is still a long list of things to do, places to go, and packing to do, but they will all have to wait so we can visit Owen, Amelia, and Michael while they are here.
Tomorrow we’ll go to Douglasville and find something to do with the kids and grandkids, and go out to dinner with the kids–Becky; Emily, Tommy and Spencer; and Seth, Sarah, Michael, Owen, and Amelia. That’s not really all of them, and we’ll miss all the ones who can’t be there with us.
Sometime before the end of the week, we’ll need to run up to Cedartown to go to the bank, get some groceries, and last minute things for the trip. And our neighbors want us to come over and cook out with them before we go! Can I possibly fit it all in???
