Last 2 weeks on the road

Well our journey is winding down, I can see the end of the road. We will still go on trips for the company, but hopefully home a lot more.But, the Scott's program is officially over Sunday Sept 28th, then its homeward bound. Should be there by Tuesday. As all of you know, I'M READY!!!!!

I am excited about going back to the Chicago area, we will be staying at the same motel we have stayed at before, not only is that a very nice, clean and safe place to be, I also met a wonderful lady there, she is a quilter and a very good one too. I am so looking forward to "show and tell". She works at one of the LQS's there so maybe I can go to that store as well. It may be one I have already been to, but that will be ok.........I just love Quilt shops ***VBS*** Now I want to post our schedule, just in case some quilter out there in blogland would like to come by.....I've only had one since we have been out and about, so if you live in any of the areas, come see me, I sure would like meeting you.

Now for our 2 weeks schedule...................Remember, WED,THURS, &FRIDAYS, hours are from 3pm-8pm SAT, & SUN, from 8am-4pm.....We DO NOT work outside if the weather is bad (rain) so look for the large green trailer in the parking lot, if it's there so are we, BUT, sometime the store mgr, doesn't let us bring the car inside, so we go back to the motel,we have no rain dates, so will go to the next scheduled event....If you would like my cell # just email me, that way you can phone before making a trip.....

YIIPEE.....Monday,29th, we are homeward bound.....Should be there on Tuesday,30th

Yes, we have enjoyed this trip, we have seen some great places, but most of all met the most wonderful people...Do I want to do this again, You Betcha, but sure need some time off now. It has been a long season, and I think it probably would have been without flaw if not for the weather....I just have had a terrible time adjusting to all the tornado warnings and then the storms that came with the warnings...But I do Thank The LORD that we wern't actually in a tornado, that may have been a breaking point for me, although I like to think I am a pretty strong woman. I also missed my children and G-Children and now my GGChild, but as time goes on, it has been somewhat easier. I guess we all adjust and I do know that I have been fortunate to be with my family all their lives, some people don't get to do that, and I feel so sorry for them, but you do what you have to. I also missed my sister and brother and their spouses, but they were so good to keep up by phone and email and also came to my house the few days we were home the 4th of July....I really needed to see them, and they came, what more could I ask for............WELL, when we get home the very next week my Sister,Brother and their spouses and DH and I are going to meet in Myrtle Beach for a great week of family togetherness and relaxation....It just doesn't get any better than this....
I also want to say a great big THANK YOU to our daughter for taking care of our house and yard and mail, etc, without her this journey would have been even more difficult, maybe next year we can take some of the work off you , we just need to figure a better way..Thanks Again.*VBS*

NO, this isn't my last post before heading home, but just wanted to say thank you to my family for all the love and support while we have been away. See all of you soon...Love to all,
PS: There was a lot of steps to get to the beach area at Lake Erie.....
Well worth the trip though, beautiful place, so glad I got to see the lake
