It’s Almost Time to Skip Town

November 23, 2005

Mostly, I’m supposed to be cleaning but I’m waiting for the motivation to hit. We leave in about three hours to go to Destin. We’re all packed and just waiting until it’s time. Jason’s working and will pick Jonas up at 5 and we’ll be on our way! We’re not sure if we’re going to drive straight through or not. I think we would all prefer to do that, but I have to face the fact that I am older these days and driving until 4 a.m. might not be practical!

My sister Carly is meeting us in Destin. When she spoke to my mom the other day, she told Mom that she thought she had broken her leg on this river adventure trip she took with the girls she councils. My mom said, “When did you get back?” Carly said, “Last Thursday.” I’m not sure she could have a broken leg for that long and not go to the doctor. Anyone ever break their leg? Wouldn’t you know? I guess we’ll see when we get down there.

I’m excited to not have to cook or do dishes or laundry.

Why don’t all of you tell me how you’re spending Thanksgiving? I’d love to know!

  1. Kunle and I are going to our parent’s house for brunch around 10 a.m. on Thanksgiving day. We’ll probably hang out there until we all… that’s including my parents, brother, sister and us… pile in a van and head a half-hour North of here to Martinsville to have dinner at my Aunt and Uncles house, where we will meet our other aunts and uncles and cousins. Hopefully we will all be able to just relax and chat and perhaps play a few games… and maybe go for a stroll after dinner or go to a movie. We shall see how it all goes! I’m just praying that it will be an uplifting time!

    And I pray that your time in Destin is uplifting, too! I hope your sister is okay, too. I’ve only had a stress fracture before… in my tibia bone (that’s the large bone… the shin… just in case you didn’t know). Anyway… it hurt… but I was really stubborn and did not complain about it, and by the time I went to the doctor… it was already healing.

    Anyhow… happy trails to you!!!

  2. RE: Broken Bones: As Sarah implied, a small fracture could easily go undetected as such. However, if the bone is a severe break she’d have known immediately.

    RE: Thanksgiving: I will be going to my family’s tomorrow for lunch and to hang out for as long as I can handle it. I will also be working on my lessons as I have procrastinated and slept instead of worked on them in the past couple of days. 🙂

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I pray your travels are safe and your family time is wonderful and blessed!

    Well, Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. I would nearly have forgotten about it if I hadn’t read it on my friends’ blogs. But, next week at Niklas’ school we are going to have a turkey dinner for the kids and I am going to tell about the American traditions and history behind Thanksgiving. But I will have to wait a week! Plus I get to cook all the food for it, which I have never done before.
