Fall Trip

I never realized how many mixed emotions you go through while getting ready to leave on a big trip. On one hand I am so excited to travel to Texas to see my grandmother, my son, my daughter-in-law, and my sister's family. Plus knowing I will get to hang out in fall weather (I miss that so much) and I'll get to go shopping in real stores, and eat real fresh fruit and veggies. Then on the other hand, I have to leave Harry for a while and won't be able to share the adventures with him, and I'm rushing to get things done at work, arrange for someone to look after some things, get the house clean, get my bags packed, and get a project finished. But I guess that's the nature of living out here - the coming and the going, travel, planning ahead for the finances, animals (Harry says they will go hungry while I'm gone - ha). This picture is my son, Josh. He's been waiting for my arrival for 2 months now. He has been counting down the days, calling every other day or so, to let me know how many days are left before I arrive. I have to admit, it feels nice to be wanted so much that someone counts down the days until you arrive. Makes me smile. He's a great son, and I really look forward to this visit. My grandmother is traveling from N Carolina to Texas to meet with me. It's a very long trip for both of us. I am so thankful for this opportunity. I'm also thankful for God's timing in allowing my sister to be able to visit. She is moving down to northern Louisiana, closing on her house at the end of the month. So that puts her in our vicinity right while I'm there visiting. Very nice. So I'll try to take a lot of pictures while I'm there. And I'll share my trip adventures with you, as soon as I can.
