    Thought I would finally update my blog.:)

    Jim and I just returned Wednesday from a trip to see his folks in Florida. We left Atlanta on Friday afternoon and stopped in Valdosta to sleep in a Hotel overnight and continue the rest of the trip the next morning.We have found that breaking up the trip may take a little longer..but it sure is an easier trip for the two of us.:) We do the same thing on the return trip too.

    Jim's Mom and Dad look a lot better than they did the last time we were there (right after Dad's heart attack). We only stayed for three days...but got a lot of visiting done in that amount of time.:) Got to see Jim's sister and hubby and a long time family friend too. A fast trip to the flea market and then headed home from there...with a stop overnight.

    We cleaned the garage out Thursday and headed to the dump with a small truck load of junk. Then had a pile of things for the thrift store. We took that to them yesterday..then spent a little while looking around the store before calling Jimmy and Christy to meet us at El Nopal's Mexican Restaurant for lunch.Then Jim and I went grocery shopping.Came home and put all of it away..watched a movie etc and I sure was ready for a good night's sleep after that.:)

    Jim and I made breakfast this morning.Christy wanted sausage gravy and biscuits and eggs. Poor Christy has caught a cold.:( Her glands in her throat are swollen and she has fever.If she wants sausage gravy and biscuits and eggs...she can have them.:) We enjoyed them too.hehe

    I guess pictures will have to come at a later time.I still have lots to do to catch up around the house.:)

    Thanks for stopping in.:)

    Hugs,
