Tuesday, and it is Toe Nail Painting Party Night!!

It is bright and early when I got online but I have been out making comments so it not so early now! I woke up early and thinking about our trip and what we need to do today to get ready, sleep would not come back!!

I must help Nancy pack and that is something else let me tell you!!!! She wants to pack every thing she has..... So I will have to help her before she take every thing out of every drawer, all of her hang up clothes, you get the idea...

When we were all younger we went to Texas for Camp meeting every summer in Dallas.
I loved going down there and times were hard... Carrie and Bill were on their own and I had the three younger girls .... We would pack up and ride down with whoever was going! Our friends were very kind and gracious and took a 17 years old Nancy, Karen who was 13 and Kelly was 18 months old..... We went with a retired couple in their RV and I was able to take Kelly's play pen!

One year we rode a Greyhound bus to Dallas for 15 hours and it stopped at every town on the map!! That was hard.... We laugh about it now... but I never did that again!!
We always had a wonderful time and came back refreshed and ready to start in again!

Praise God! He was is so Good! All through the really hard years He never left us! He was always there helping me take care of everything!

Ok, back to getting ready for our trip. We have a place for our Dog to be, Sarah is taking care of the cats, I have all our meds refilled. Karen picks up the concentrator tomorrow afternoon.

I will miss reading all on your blogs and leaving comments!!!

Carrie called me last night and she said that I was so addicted to this now that she doesn't think I can go a week with out blogging!!! I told her Karen and Kelly will be posting pictures over on Traveling Grams and I can rest up!! I think I can go a week with out blogging!

Karen just called me and she is on her way to work. She said she had sent a message to Sophia, Sarah and me that tonight is "Toe Nail Painting Party Night"! She will be bringing home some Pizza, we can Pop some corn and put in a Chick flick and Paint toe nails! Oh Good Heavens Grams better go soak her feet and get ready for this Party!!!

I'm soooo very excited for you about this upcoming trip:-) It's so hard to decide what to pack in clothes...I always pack way too much, especially if you don't know if it's going to be cold or hot or sunny or rainy! lol If you're like me, you will miss blogging but you will also be steady saying "oh I must post about this or I must post about that" all through your trip! hehe xoxo

Oh I wish I lived closer- I'd come to the toe nail painting party too! Sounds like fun.

I need to do less blogging and more packing for our trip- it takes so much work to get everything ready to go!

OooooooooH that sounds like so much fun. My toes really need to be done. One time my grand daughters painted each one of mine a different color,it was Easter. Well I guess I wasn't thinking and went to the store with my flip flops on. All my pink,yellow green,blue and purple toes out there for the world.
Sounds like you guys are going to have fun trip. We'll miss you blogging,but you'll have so much to say when you get back.......
