Traveling On Holidays:Thanksgiving Tale

We have not in the past traveled much on Holiday. In fact, we have never been on the road after a Holiday...At least not that I can remember.

For this reason, we did not realize that everyone and their brother, mother, sister, dog, cat and iguana was on the road trying to get home from Grandma's house. Goodness gracious! We left around noon on Sunday for an 8 hour trip. With the time change, that would have put us home by 8:00 with all our stops. Well...................

We had Snow, Ice, Rain, Thunder Storms, and TRAFFIC! Oh my did we have TRAFFIC!!

After all was said and took us 12 hours to get home...But-with God's protection we got home safe and sound.
Praise God!

I assume there are some other travel tips I should learn from this experience...I will am not really sure what they are. Below are some links that have some travel tips....

All It Needs Is a Fresh Coat Of Paint, Right? Right!

I really am not an experienced painter. So where else to try my hand at it...but the closet... Who in their right mind would look in my closet and examine the painting I get brave and paint. I was scary and my husband wasn't even home to coach me.

It actually turned out okay. My dear husband will have to go back and fix a few mistakes. But like I said , who is gona be examining my closet....If they stick their head in to examine my closet I'll just kick them in and close the door...ha!

Here is the final product...Now just to find where we put the shelves and put them in. Now where did I put those shelves? Oh my....where are they....

More progress later.
