The Flu Strikes

Saturday 12/27 Ten of us drove into Hot Springs to get out of the house and let the kids spread out a bit.  Unfortunately it was raining which didn’t leave us a whole lot of options. We decided to try the National Park Aquarium as it was indoors and reasonable – all the kids were … Continue reading »

Moving Day: Palestine, TX To Glenwood, AR

Wow!  We both slept good…in a Walmart parking lot, nonetheless! We ended up dragging ourselves out of bed a few minutes before 8:00 am.  We got the bed made, got ourselves dressed and then walked over to Walmart in search of breakfast.  We were surprised to find that they had a McDonalds inside as we didn’t … Continue reading »

Moving Day: San Antonio, TX To Palestine, TX

I was awake much too early (5:30 am) and couldn’t fall back to sleep so just decided to go ahead and get up.  It was ok because I worked on double checking my lists for Christmas (meals, gifts, things to do, etc) to be sure I don’t forget anything.  I also put together a calendar … Continue reading »

San Antonio Whirlwind

The biggest reason for stopping in San Antonio was so that we could visit the VA and the local DAV chapter in hopes that someone, anyone could give us some help with Michael’s VA benefits claim/appeal.  We stopped and talked with people in the … Continue reading »

We had originally made plans for Jeremy (our … Continue reading »

War Zone Road & Closing Time

Had a few sand trucks approach the gate a little after 5:30 am this morning only to find out that it was locked and not open again until 9:00 am.  They just backed up, pulled to the side of the road and settled in to wait for the gate to open. When I opened up the … Continue reading »
