Road Trip



I took off a bit early from work on Friday to pick up my youngest daughter, Allison, and drive up to my mother's home in Dunnellon. We took Koko with us as he is always up for a road trip... unusual for a cat. Ally and I had a wonderful visit while driving up there and back, and an equally wonderful visit with my mother.

We spent the night in Dunnellon... which was a bit difficult for Ally. It seems her mother was a bit congested and kept snoring and waking her up until she changed rooms in the wee hours of the morning. What can I say? I had a snuffy nose!

We decided to plan on an Alaskan Inner Passage cruise for next summer. It is something I have always wanted to do and something my mother has really wanted to do. So we are going! It is my hope that somehow my offspring will be able to go with us... It would be a fabulous time! So I will be investigating the options and checking out costs. I have several friends who have already done these cruises, and I will pick their brains about the trips they took.

We returned on Saturday since Ally had plans, and I needed to put some time in at work. When we reached her apartment she showed me some new sites on the internet where there are some pictures of her and her friends, as well as two of my other children. It is called myspace.com. I will be checking this out soon!

Currently, I am looking forward to seeing everyone together for Thanksgiving. It is always a good time whenever my kids all get together. They are all quite entertaining and funny! It is also the only time of year that I get to see my only sister and her husband, so it is always a special time.

Have a great day everyone. I am going to get settled in to watch the Bucs!

sounds like you have some great plans to make! I'm supposed to go on an Alaskan cruise next summer with my parents and siblings to celebrate their 50th. Should be fun!

Oh, a cruise sounds great! I have never been on one but maybe...someday!

Frustratedwriter-- wouldn't it be a hoot if we ended up on the same cruise!?!

It would definitely be a hoot! When are you all heading out? I think ours is in late summer.

I think we will be going in August sometime... I haven't booked it yet. I am still looking into both Holland America and Carnival. Looks like it will be cheaper to fly into Seattle that Vancouver. I will keep you posted on what I find out.

Wow, a cruise. That sounds like fun and I hope the family can go.
The Thanksgiving sound really good too. When the kids get to that age they are sooo much fun. Great family.
