I live in VA. I wish I knew how to mark Roanoke with a great big X.
Tomorrow we are going to Wisconsin.
My husband's two sons and his granddaughter live near Madison.
We don't get to see them very often.
I surprised him for his 60th birthday 6 years ago.
I cleared it with his work, packed his suitcase,
met him at work, and drove him to the airport.
He enjoyed a long weekend with his kids.
(I also asked friends to send him birthday cards that I kept from him.
When he came home, I displayed them in a huge 60.)
We are taking my parents with us.
They have visited 48 states.
(Yep, they've been to Alaska and Hawaii, but I haven't.)
Wisconsin and Minnesota are the only 2 they haven't seen.
(And I've been to both of those before.)
Dad is having trouble with his hip.
The doctor told him he should stop every hour for at least 10 minutes.
Mom is on oxygen at night, so we will be hauling her oxygen concentrator.
In addition, we have her wheelchair and commode.
Since this is a thrifty blog, you should know that we bought
the wheelchair at an auction for $15.
(She has a smaller one, but we call this her all-terrain vehicle.)
The commode came from Goodwill for $5.
Mom's seat is special. I added a Virginia Tech toilet seat to it.
I limited us to one suitcase apiece.
Thankfully, we're taking my parents' van.
See you in a week.
