There and Back Again
Wow, this weekend was a treat for sure. I don't get to see my brother and sisters much since they all live out of state and any time you can combine family and thrifting into one location IT IS GREAT. My husband hates my SUV, so just the trip alone for him is almost agonizing (he says my seats are uncomfortable and it is a 7 hour drive) and the worst part for me is listening to him complain about HIS agony and MY driving for 7 hours and having to pass so many thrift and antique stores and NOT being able to go in them because he will not let me stop. Henceforth....we should take seperate vacations, but sometimes that just isn't possible. So Friday evening, we headed north from Georgia to my home state of Tennessee, yep, Music City here we come. Friday night while we are on the road driving, my sister is looking up the yard sales for the next day.....can you say GPS! We are so high tech these days! So with game plan almost in hand, we keep driving and inching our way toward Mom and Dad's house (or as in days gone by we called it HOME), now it is our family's gathering spot for us kids since Mom and Dad are both gone now, but I feel like it will always be HOME to me. Maybe that is because I am the youngest...aka: the baby, the pain, the one who got away with murder, the catastrophe.......but heck they love me, Mom said they have to!
