I am having a great time in VA. It is so good to spend time with my sister!! I miss her so much and someday we will live closer, we will. I am so impressed by her homemakery and mothering, I know in a way I shouldn't be, we were raised well, but still, she has three super energy noise makers running around all the time and yet her house is clean and they are clean, and despite all the excess -- or so it seems to me -- energy very well behaved and just plan good kids. I know I'm biased, get over it.
Driving through West Virginia was incredible, I have decided that is where I want to live. Hands down the best place I have ever seen, including pictures and movies of places I haven't been....well, there is Ireland....
Anyway, driving with my mom and husband was fun. We listened to music and stopped at all the visitors centers for free maps, and generally had a great time.
I got two bits of disturbing news last night. Garrison, the older of the boys I babysat, fell off his bike and broke his femur. He is in surgery this morning. I know this sort of thing happens all the time, and that Meredith and John are very capable and they have plenty of friends and family there, but I wish I could be there none the less.
Then got an email from my dad that he's been having chest pain and is having tests done today for it. Gah!! It's been strange to be on a trip like this without dad, and I know he misses us. I wish I could be in two places at once. What am I writing, I wish I could be in three or four places at once.
All in all though, this has been a lovely trip and we are not done yet!
