I’m home, finally! It feels so good to sleep in my own bed! We made it home Saturday evening and I spent all day Sunday resting. It’s been a very long week.
My father-in-law is doing well, though we had a little scare as we were traveling home on Saturday we got a call that he was having difficulty breathing and they were sending him back to the hospital. But all was well and he was sent home after being thoroughly checked out. He’s doing much better now. Miss Priss has been a huge help to her grandparents and we are so proud of her that she volunteered to stay to help.
We left East Texas on Friday around 5:30 in the evening, after making sure we had gotten everything done that needed to be done for D’s parents. We drove to Vicksburg, Mississippi to spend the night at a new Hampton Inn, which I highly recommend if you ever are in need of a room in Vicksburg. Big D and I were both kind of wound up from the weeks activities so we decided to hit a casino for some de-stressing therapy. We played the slots for about two hours and then decided we were tired and headed back to our hotel. Bubba opted out of the casino, he was too tired and crashed.
We left Vicksburg in a downpour on Saturday morning, after eating at Cracker Barrel. If you travel with us, you will soon find out that we stop at Cracker Barrel to eat just about every meal. Why? Because you know you’ll usually get a decent meal…..except do not stop at the one in Birmingham, Alabama…poorest service ever and our food was cold! It rained most of our way home and at times so bad that D called it a “gully washer.” I kept my mind and eyes busy crocheting my granny squares (Share a Square) so I wouldn’t freak out about how bad it was, it was really bad at times! But we made it home safe and sound and that is what matters!!!
In other news, we have officially put our house on the market! The sign went in the yard today. The neighbors will be talking now! Now comes the fun part of strangers walking through my house, realtors calling with just a moments notice, blah, blah, blah! I just hope it sells fast!
So that’s it at the “Garden” it’s good to be home, even if I’m exhausted! I’ll be by to catch up with y’all!!
