Getting Ready to Go

Woke up to another sunny morning. So grateful for that! Randy & I went to Silverhill Covenant Church this morning. This is the church where my Bible study group meets. A few of the women who go to Curves are members of the Bible study and the church, so I wanted to attend a church service. We really enjoyed it. Very different from Church of the Eastern Shore as Silverhill Covenant is traditional in its service where COTES is very contemporary. But, the pastor gave a good message and the members were very friendly. We'll probably go back to see what it's like on a regular Sunday rather than during Christmas.

We spent a couple of hours this afternoon packing for the trip home. When you live/travel in your home, it's hard to pack to be away from it! And we're going to be gone a month, so that's even harder. But, we've packed what we think we'll need and if we've forgotten anything, guess we'll either do without or buy it! :)

Our journey home begins at 5am tomorrow morning. The first stop is Winterville, NC at our good friends, Dan & Deb's. We'll spend a couple of nights there, recovering from the long drive on Monday. Wednesday morning we'll drive to my folks' on the Eastern Shore of MD. Spend the night and then go to my sister's for Christmas Eve service on Thursday. We'll spend Christmas Eve night at our niece's home.

Christmas Day will find us back at my sister's. We'll finally see the kids then. So looking forward to that. Then, the next week will be spent at Jason & Lindsay's.

Whew! I'm tired just typing all of that. But, I can't wait for all of the craziness, frivolity, and loudness that is my family. They are the best.

I hope wherever you are during the holidays that you savor each minute. Take care.

Until the next time . . .


  1. Hope you have a safe trip and avoid the ice and snow. Merry Christmas!
