These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

The mapquest pages are printed and in the car, just in case the GPS gets silly.
I am partially packed.

Tomorrow I will
Change the sheets.
Finish packing.
Say goodbye to the babies (with tears in my eyes).
Drive to Santa Fe.

I'm in good shape.

Yesterday I wasn't so sure about anything. My head was so out of it with the congestion I couldn't get a thing done. I repeatedly started to do something and forgot what I was going to do before I could do it. I tried to pay bills, but I would look at an amount and forget it before I could write it on the check, so after several aborted attempts to write checks, I quit. I was not feeling bad, except for the difficulty breathing and the soreness of my poor nose, but I just couldn't get anything done. I finally curled up on the couch with several cups of hot tea and just vegged.

Today is so much better! I'm still blowing like crazy, but I can at least put sentences together and remember numbers long enough to write them down. Now that all that is done, I'm ready to go and excited about it. I will miss the babies, but I will have a wonderful visit with Enid.

I'll talk with all of you by Wednesday. Y'all stay safe and hold the fort down, OK?

  6. Holy cow, you were a machine! You got so much done! How did you do that with all the congestion? Are you the bionic woman?
