photographer Jon McBride. I'm sure he'll forgive me eventually. :-))
In about 24 hours or so I will get in the car and drive to Virginia with my brother. Scott needs to go in to work to discuss things, and I have a job interview in the early afternoon. After we take care of that, we hit the road. We're hoping to make it home in time to see our grandfather one last time. I'm dreading the drive, and sad for the occasion, but happy to get to see my family again.
We're playing this whole trip by ear. We have no idea how long we will be gone, or when we will return. There is a possibility that Scott will fly back, and I will drive back solo. Or that maybe Natalie and Porter (who flew to VA on Friday and is scheduled to fly back Monday) will drive back with me/us.
The only thing we do know is that we are driving out there non-stop. There are several friends I would have liked to stop and see, but given the urgency of the situation, we won't be able to do so.
My mother read my post from a few days ago where I asked for coupons. I had expected her to not appreciate the teepee post (then again, she may just not have read it yet). But instead, she feels my coupon request was tacky. If you are also of this same thought, I apologize if I came off as a beggar. I was just thinking if anyone had such things sitting around and wouldn't be using them, I would appreciate them. I (thankfully) am not yet to the point where I'm looking for hand outs.
And on that happy note, I'm off to the store (yes, on a Sunday, this is a definite ox in the mire day) to pick up a few little cheap items for our road trip tomorrow.
Pray for good weather and easy roads! And send me lots of texts and IM's to keep me entertained!
