This week’s been weird in that we’ve been so busy,
but I haven’t taken any pics of all our busy-ness. . .
very strange for me? ? ?
We missed two of the grand’s birthdays while we were gone,
so last Monday, we took our oldest grandgirl out to celebrate,
her choice. . .Red Lobster. . .and then the fun part. . .
taking her to use her birthday cash for something she wants. . .
and then on Tuesday, the younger sister. . .
our middle grandgirl. . .who turned 16 in September. . .
her choice. . .Olive Garden. . .
and off to Game Stop for Nintendo games. . . awesome!
With all the grands being grown up almost,
and busy with school, and sports, and choir, and art, and work,
we take our moments and hugs when we can,
life goes on and we’ve learned to adapt to their new phases. . .
and they to ours. . .yaaaa!
Wednesday morning, bright and early,
we loaded up and headed to Conroe Thousand Trails
where RV friends, Debi and Ed were already set up. . .
look where we ended up. . .sharing utilities. . .ha ha. . .
as Debi had told us. . .most of the GOOD 50 A spots were taken,
and it’s still hot. . .so were looking for a bit of shade. . .
and NOT having the west sun shining in the windshield. . .
so this spot fit the bill. . .and they said they didn’t care if we chose it. . .
so here we are. . .we would rather have shared a front yard. . .
but the next space over is 30A. . .and that just does not work
with temps still as high as they are. . .ugh!
We needed to stay in the north just a bit longer. . .
We got caught up on essentials and shopping,
Debi and I had a girls days out. . .mani/pedi style
with lunch at Casa Ole’. . .
while I was gone, Dave started ripping the carpet out of our rig. . .
we knew from the moment we purchased the rig,
the carpet would need to be changed,
and now, two years later, is the time. . .
The Allure Vinyl Planks are on order from Home Depot,
and should arrive this week. . .
we would love to have the prep work done before they arrive. . .
wish us luck. . .I’ll post after pics later. . .
pray for our poor backs and knees. . .LOL. . .
Saturday, we went to watch our
Baby Grand’s softball game. . .
and get hugs from her, and our boy, her daddy. . .
she is quite the little athlete,
and has already been offered a
scholarship to play softball
for a Texas College. . .
Yesterday, Sunday, my brother stopped by on his way home from the deer lease,
with a SURPRISE. . .my DADDY! Wasn’t expecting to see him for a
couple more weeks, so it was great to get my hugs in early.
The fact that Bub left us with a beautiful venison backstrap wasn’t shabby either. . .
thanks Bub. . .I love the rewards of your bow hunting skills. . .you’re awesome!
and I guess that’s about it. . .we’ll drive to Livingston tomorrow to early vote. . .
pick up a few more things at Home Depot. . .
(I’m sure this project will require many more treks there)
and continue on until we are done. . .
’til next time,
Janice and Dave
