Hello dear readers, (wow, that sounds pretty formal…)

I’m going to be gone for a month, gotta go become a grandmother! My DIL is due on the 22nd, she is having a girl, so far everything is going good, the baby is active and mom-to-be is ready to be un-pregnant. :) I’ll be leaving tomorrow morning, it’s about an 8-9 hour trip (500 miles), fortunately the views are pretty nice, until I get into the DFW area… I have to be honest and say that I do not want to leave here, I do want to be with my son and DIL for the baby, and there are some things I need to get out there, but I am not looking forward to being gone from here for a month, but we do what we have to do, I’m hoping the time will go be quickly and I’ll be back here in no time. I will be able to catch up with a few of my friends, that will be a good thing, I’ll also be able to get some stuff I can’t get easily here.

I’ll pretty much be out of touch (computer wise) while I’m gone, it’s possible that I might be able to log on to someone’s computer once or twice while I’m gone, but I can’t guarantee anything, I’ll try my best.

What really hurts is I will be leaving the 3 things I really love, Bob, Pekoe and my mountain. Bob will keep busy working on the cabin, Pekoe will turn into a puddle of “I miss my mama!”, the mountain will be here when I get back.

Anyone who wants to comment, please feel free to do so, I’ll try to get them approved as soon as possible, but it may be a while before you see it here.

I hope to be back sometime soon after October 15th.

    Take good care of DIL and grandbaby. The time will fly, and soon enough the little girl will be off to high school.

    Post pics if you can (g).

    Thanks Seth,
    I already miss being here and I haven’t left yet! I REALLY don’t want to leave, but I’ll do what needs to be done and all will be better for it.

    Have a safe trip. We’ll miss you.
    Take lots of pics for us to see.
    Being a grandparent is so cool.
    My grandson is now 18 months, he’s a loveable handle full that’s for sure.
    Wishing you and mommy and daddy to be, all the best!
