I'm having craft withdrawals.
All of my crafty goodness is packed.
We leave Friday for South Carolina!
Feels weird to not have a craft something to share with you.
Looking forward to being in the truck for 7 days to get to South Carolina.
(Ask me again after 3 days if I still feel the same way. LOL)
I have lots of busy things in a couple of bags to entertain me. Coloring books (adult and children kind); Bible Study & Bible; Empty spiral notebook ready to be filled with thoughts, ideas, prayers, things we see, etc; yarn and a couple of new crochet books - that's going to be fun. On every trip we've driven between South Carolina and Alaska going one way or the other (this is trip #6 as a family) I've always crocheted something on the way. I'm not very advanced with crochet, so usually its a simple blanket pattern or flower squares. But it's fun to see the project grow in size the more time I spend working on it.
Bonnie has her DVD player which we will also have her XBox hooked up to. She should be in hog heaven. Plus the doggies will be in the backseat with her keeping her company... unless I switch with her to lay down and take a nap with the doggies. :)
We are so excited. Can't wait to get home. I haven't seen my Mama in what.... 3 years? Can't wait to go spend some time with her hearing her stories and give her a hug. I think Bonnie & I need to pick her up from the nursing home and take her out to eat. She loves doing that. Her favorite places to go are Rush's for a chicken sandwich, Chic-fil-a (chick no pick), and Grecian Gardens.
Of course, Tom will be busy driving. That man loves long driving trips. I don't get it. If I'm driving for more than 45 minutes I get lulled to sleep by the rhythm of the road. Not Tom. He thrives on it. That's when he always gets a lot of good ideas for our next adventures, remodel plans, vacation destination, etc. So glad he likes to drive so much.
I was packing my clothes in the suitcase, and realized something. I own 7 short sleeve shirts. 7! That's horrible! I'm moving to the humid heat of the south! Most of my clothes are long sleeves or sweaters. Sounds like somebody needs to do some shopping when she gets back home. I hate shopping. Wait. Let me clarify that. I hate shopping for clothes. Now get me out shopping for kitchen appliances or grills or crafty goodness or LEGOS... I LOVE some Lego buildings... I'm all over that. But clothes shopping I loathe. I'll tell you a little secret about me. When I find a shirt I like and it fits well, I buy one of every color. That's how much I hate shopping. Just give me something to wear. I don't care if it looks just like the shirt I wore yesterday. It's a different color at least. LOL
I think I've bored you enough for one day. Thanks for visiting with me. Love you guys!
