Driving Miss Margaret

On Monday October 27 we left our home at 5:12 a.m. and drove just over 600 miles to my sister's house in Fairfield, CA.  Aaron drove the entire distance.  He had said he was going to have me drive some, but he is like the Energizer Bunny--he just keeps going and going.  I have the unfortunate habit of drifting off to sleep now and again and again and again.  At least that way I'm not giving him any trouble!!

It was great to see our nephew Spencer and hear his stories of boot camp.  What a great attitude he has about the entire experience--even the really rough parts.  He had great admiration for his drill instructor.  This coming Tuesday--Election Day--he starts the next part of his training in San Diego and then he'll be heading to Virginia to begin training for his MOS.

I always have a great time being with my sister Jeanne.  She had to work but was able to take off early.

We are off again on November 8--flying to Lincoln, Nebraska and then on to Austin, TX to see our son and family.  Can't wait to give those little granddaughters a hug and read to them and play games with them.
