Thanks everyone for checking in and leaving comments. I really appreciate it.
Well, we are able to get out of Dodge for 10 days! It's what I'd call a half-break because although my brother-in-law is going to be responsible for the Other Mother while we are gone on vacation, we are taking The Mother (my mom) with us. We are going once again to Arkansas and she used to live there and has lots of friends so we take her along with us.
This gives my sister a break from the responsibility of The Mother and changes things up for us. HA.
There's going to be fried-green-bean-eating and more. We might take a trip to the Diamond Mine and dig for gems. There will be lots of sitting on the deck and observing nature also.
So, behave yourself while I'm away and hopefully I'll have some interesting stories to tell when we return.
See you in 10 days!
