My bags are packed.....

the snacks are packed
and we are heading out for a roadtrip!
A 4+ hour roadtrip to buy a sewing machine!
What kind of crazy woman would do that?
One that's as crazy as me!!
I don't have any problem talking people into
going along for the ride.
Could it be the food?
The snacks?
The conversation?
The listening to me talk about said machine
all the way to Richmond and back?
I think it's because they all love me!!
Leslie, Emma and Morgan are going today
and we are going to have fun!
I didn't sleep a wink last night.
I was almost as excited as when you are getting ready to head to the beach!!!
I have had this excitement a couple times before
with a Craigslist purchase.
My Nubian Buck was about 6 hours away.....crazy??
Then our new boat was about 3 hours away.
Come on locals please sell me some good stuff locally so I don't have to travel so far!!!
Like I said I always have good company willing to go along with me though!!
(I wonder why I had no takers on my 6 hour trip to Ohio to buy 3 angora goats and had to go by myself? Maybe I will have to have someone refresh my memory on that one. About the time I am getting ready to buy them all lunch I'll bring that one up ;-)
I have checked the weather
and all appears to be clear after a little AM fog.
We have had 2 days of ice here so
I thought I better check.
Then we hit the road at 7AM
I am sure that Leslie would have liked a day to sleep in
but I am just too excited!!!
So wish us luck and I will be back tomorrow to tell you all about it
and the next day
and the next day
and the..........are you tired of hearing about it already??? Sorry!!
