Minus 31 hours!

Around two p.m. on Saturday, I will be seeing my brother, sister-in-law and three year old niece for the first time since Christmas and my eight-month old niece for the first time ever!

Usually, this time of year is 9 or 10 days up at the lake house with the entire family. Middle liddle brother and his wife and kids come up from Columbus, liddle liddle brother and his wife and kids come in from Dallas, and we all meet at Lakeside. Unfortunately, all of my vacation time is booked up this year, so I get a long weekend. I'll follow Mom & Dad up tomorrow afternoon, and then go straight to the office on Monday morning. It's a two-plus hour drive, but that's not what drives me crazy. I hate driving, so I'd really rather just do the mandatory 5-7 mph over the speed limit and get it over with. Dad, on the other hand, drives at 60 to save gas. No wonder my toenails itch when we start off on these journeys.

I've neatened up the house for Amy, who is dogsitting, and started the laundry. I still need to pack and then load the car, but since I've only got to pack for three days, that shouldn't take long. Two pairs of shorts, two t-shirts, undies, toothpaste and toothbrush, jammies and my meds, and I'm good to go.

I can't wait!

Tank dog it is only a weekend.

I remember semi frantic phone calls from you as you clawed for sanity.

I will be a slavin' away, you have a good time.

The Sherri will talk to you.

Or you can come here and leave messages on my blog and I bet one of the critters from Eerie, PA will answer you.
