Haven't Left Yet

We didn't leave today as planned. We still have a few things to wrap up here. My favorite uncle (Q.B) pasted away on Monday at 77 years old. He has been fighting cancer for the last year. His memorial service is scheduled for Saturday. My brother has asked to stay in the area so we could attend his daughters graduation party on Sunday.  We will be pulling out of here on this weekend for sure. Looks like we will be staying local for a little while.

Let me just say that we are two very tired fat girls. We have been working our butts off ( we wished it was that easy). Today we made good progress and I am here to tell you that when we do pull out of here and find us a spot to park, that I'm going to park my big ole butt and rest for awhile.

Travel Safe Dawn and Denise

  1. I'm sorry you weren't able to leave today - life does have a way of getting in our way, doesn't it? When you do take off, though, it will be with the memory of saying goodby to your favorite uncle and attending your niece's graduation, which she will remember - so you will have some good family memories to take with you.

    You'll be on your way before you know it. :)

  2. You guys crack me up :)

    I'm hoping you'll soon find a chance to rest those weary butts of yours so you will be refreshed to start your journey.

    So very sorry for your loss.

  3. Sorry to read about your favorite uncle passing. I hope you can find consolation in knowing that he no longer has to fight the cancer battle and deal with the pain and uncertainty. It's nice, too, that you'll be able to attend his memorial and then share in the celebration of your niece's graduation before heading out to begin life anew!!

    I, along with many others, I'm sure, have been checking in on your blog countdown and hoping to find an update on how things are going. But. . . . we all know that you two have had your nose(s) to the grindstone for the past many weeks and that you'll catch us up on how things went in the final stages after you 'hit the road'.

    Can't wait to hear where you'll be heading!

  7. You defintely will need some down time. It took us about 3 months to recover from all that it took to retire and get out of town. Enjoy that time.

  12. We went through a similar situation when we were trying to get ready to hit the road so we can sympathize. Just keep telling yourself how much fun you are going to have and it will make it easier. Very sorry about the loss of your uncle but enjoy the graduation and find a place to rest quick!!!

    Safe travels!!
