A Whirlwind of a Day

Whew. Today turned out to be a little crazy. I'm glad to be home, in my recliner, in the A/C and done for the day.

We started the day with a leisurely breakfast at Bob Evans with my mom and Reagan. Lindsay had lots to do today to get ready to go away this weekend, so I figured getting Reagan out of her hair for a couple of hours would be a help.

After getting our bellies filled, we headed over to WalMart to get some refills for our cupboards. All four of us went. My mom and Reagan meandered around while Randy & I did our grocery shopping.

With that chore done, we headed back to Lindsay's to drop Mommy and Reagan off. Then, we were on our way home to unload the groceries.

We spent a few hours at home (I even got in a short nap!). I put spaghetti sauce and meatballs in the crockpot for dinner. About 4pm we got ourselves back out the door to go to Lindsay's for dinner.

As we drove to Lins', we saw that the traffic lights were out. We figured there'd been an accident or something. We got to Lindsay's and found their power was out as well. The power was out EVERYWHERE! There went our spaghetti and meatballs dinner. Daggummit, I was looking forward it, too.

Now, in between all this, Jason had to take their new dog, Bolt, to the vet. He came back with a prescription for the dog. So, he and Lins took the prescription to Target to be filled and checked out the area restaurants to see if anything was operating. They found that Bob Evans had power and was open for business. So what if we ate there this morning? Randy, Reagan, my mom and I got ourselves over there just in time for their power to go out!! UGH!

We decided to take the spaghetti dinner fixin's back to the RV. So, Jason, Lindsay & Reagan went to their house to pick up the meal and Randy, my mom and I were going to the campground. Then, we realized how long it would take us to get there because of the traffic tie-ups due to the power outage. So, plans changed again, and we picked up a bunch of burgers and fries at Burger King which had power in spite of being right across the street from Bob Evans. Weird.

We took the food back to Lindsay's and ate. Jason, Lindsay & Reagan were leaving tomorrow for a weekend at the beach, but decided to leave tonight because they had no power. Once they decided that, they got moving to get themselves ready to go. Well, wouldn't you know the power then came back on?? When it seemed the power was on for good, we left with Bolt. He's in our care for the next few days.

Craziness!! I felt like we'd been on a Tilt-a-Whirl for a couple of hours! Ugh.

Now, I get to join Randy on his walks around the park with Blackie & Bolt.

Until the next time . . .

  1. Hi Terry & Randy
    We've never met in person but have a lot of mutual RV friends (the Patterson, Jones, Averys etc) The reason I'm writing you is that I'm thinking of buying (& learning to play) a mountain dulcimer & wondered if you all might have any advice for me. Thanks, and happy travels to you!
