Crunch time

Okie doke, this here is my last post for a bit. There is a possibility that I might post while away, but I'm not going to make it a priority unless I'm extremely bored!

I have a big list of things to do- finish packing, cleaning, getting all the little last minute things done. I am rather slow and not terribly motivated to do any of it :) I am a bit nervous about this trip- it is so terribly long. I pray we don't have to stop much, but I have no idea how long my children's bladders will hold out before needing a bathroom. Or my pregnant one, lol.

We welcome your prayers- we will be traveling through the rest of Texas, Arkansas, Missouri and part of Illinois tomorrow. We stop around Springfield, then the next day is the rest of Illinois, Wisconsin and finally, Michigan! Every time we go, it seems that the last 2 hour stretch of driving will last forever!

My husband and I will be celebrating our 8th anniversary the 21st, and his parents have agreed to watch our children overnight while we head to a remote bed and breakfast. Yippee! I desperately need some alone time. So, no time left for dilly dallying.

God bless!

I love going to Michigan and I know it is LONG trip and that's just from Tennessee!! I can't imagine driving from Texas.

Have a safe trip and a happy anniversary!

We are actually kid free for the next 4 days...and that's really something when you have 6 kids. So we are sneaking away today for a couple of days.

Have a good trip! Too bad you won't be in my part of Michigan. Enjoy the alone time with your husband and relax!
