Hi from South Carolina

We're here. Getting ready for a trip kicks my butt even when I'm 100 percent healthy. It really kicked my fanny this time. We left friday after Stef got out of school at 11 a.m. and headed south. Packed to the gills :)

It's beautiful down here. By far my favorite is the Spanish moss. There's something just so dramatic about it. I'll take some pics to post soon.

We brought my old kitty, Maui. She makes this rather annoying meow that isn't a real meow. It sounds like "rrrerrr" over and over again. She did this all night when we stayed in the hotel. I'm sorely missing my sound making alarm clock thingy. I love me some white noise to block out kitty sounds. I did figure out how to make static on the radio sound like a waterfall (or maybe it's just my imagination!)

It's late here. After 1 but then I slept through dinner. Jackie and I conked out. She's still asleep so I imagine she'll be ravenous in the morning.

This kitty is yelling really loud. The reason we brought her along is because she's 18 and usually refuses to eat when I'm gone. I almost lost her when I was in the hospital for 3 days with my mastectomy. She's a drama queen, just like my kids :) Maui is beautiful and itty bitty because she's so old. And what a trooper. She traveled better than all of us!

I'm hitting the sack.

I'm glad you are getting some well deserved R&R even though the preparations 'kicked your butt.'
Sounds like you need some ear plugs.
