Heading Home...

Well we have been on the road for a week...and we've had a great time. A great time to the tune of 1600 miles and we haven't even started the trip to florida. That will be another 750-800 miles...

I'm not going to lie, I am ready to be home again..we're a tad road weary...Comfort Inns, Westin, Country Hearth...are all fine and dandy but I miss my Tempurpedic and I miss my healthy home cooking.

But I must say the trip has been grand. Washington was really great..we saw almost everything and walked for miles. The weather was mild and sunny.

Headed to the Luray Caverns..which were everything I had imagined...AWESOME..and Monticello was beautiful.

We've been with our 7 grandchildren and will be on the road tomorrow...and should be in my own bed tomorrow night.

Thanks all for checking on me..and sending me birthday wishes...I'll post pictures soon..

HUGS!!!!

I have been hitting the road for work and familial responsibilities every weekend for about a month now. Your trip sounds like a blast!

Happy belated birthday.

Glad you're having fun. I calculated the gas costs for that and unless I transposed a number it's equal to the bailout amount needed...

leelee said...

You got that right VE....wowser! But heck I'll only be 50 once right? it was worth it..we had a great trip!

HUGS!!

Grandkids rock! My Honey has the cutest ever (apart from your grandkids I'm sure *wink*) 3 year old grandson and he has me wrapped around his pudgy boy finger.

I drove 6 hours straight to and then from Toronto this weekend. My aching neck! I needed more time between the drives!

I'll have to take my Chicklet on a trip to the caverns. She loves exploring those.

Welcome back!

So happy you had a marvelous time...

Now tell me, did you get to do a photo of you and the grandkids to mirror the one you shared a few months back?

leelee said...

Anndi, thanks..yes, take your chicklet to Luray...and yes, I agree about the grandkids. My husband's daughter is mother to the 7!! amazing!

Vinny - Thanks...but I didn't get that picture..I don't know what happened..I had every intention..but one thing led to another..7 kids...what can I say...I'll try again next time.

HUGS!

Welcome back. Your dreams were your ticket out. (Sorry, for some reason the theme song to "Welcome Back, Kotter" popped into my head and took over)

leelee said...

Pug..perhaps that's because I told you a while back that I looked like Marcia Strasman in HS.

"well the names have all changed since you hung around..."

HUGS!!
