i think i am about traveled out this year. one more trip maybe but a short one.

spent two months in washington state with my daughter in law and grands when she had surgery.

then went to hawaii in may after the birth of our 10th grandchild. from there i went back to washington for 3 more weeks.

dh and i got back a little over a week ago from a couple of weeks in texas.

now the only other trip is i might go back to texas in november with my dd and her family, but that is still up in the air.

hopefully next year i won't be living out of a suitcase so much, lol.

dh is retiring in march of next year and we might do some traveling together next fall. we'd also like to go on another cruise, just not sure when that will be.

now that i am home again i have started reviewing books, i kind of missed that when i was away. this time though some of them i am going to get paid for which makes it nice.

lots of stuff going on with the family, it never ends. ddil in washington had gastric bypass surgery in february and has lost 96 pounds. she looks wonderful, almost like she did in high school. we are waiting for ds to get home from sea to see where they are gonna be stationed next, hopefully not all the way across the country again but closer to home.

other ddil was tested to see if the cancer had returned when she was expecting lily, but everything turned out fine there. she is not sure if they will let her re enlist and if not they are looking to move an hour or two from us.

get to see dd today as i have to take her to the dentist, poor girl is in a lot of pain. her oldest is in high school and getting his driver's license, my how time flies.

hope ya'll have a wonderful day

Ellen, you certainly have been busy.  It sounds like your family is doing well despite all the problems.  That's nice.

I'm looking forward to my trip next month.  I'll only be gone five days, but it will seem like a lifetime.

Take a good rest.
