I've got Soul

Well, Good Sunday Morning to you all! It's 3:36 in the blessed am, and I am up and heading for the shower. Today, the weather is going to be sunny and nearly warm here - in the forties. (After the deep freeze we have been in, we will all be wearing out shorts!) But where H and I are going, it will be 60 degrees! That is itself is a cause for celebration, but that's not all, because we are driving six or so hours south(ish) to meet Soul and Soulman, who drove six or so hours north(ish) last night. We will have a long lunch and turn around and drive back home, but it will do me a world of good to see my friend, and I know it will do the same for her. Frankly - we need to laugh, and with the two of us, that is guaranteed. :)

That is assuming of course, that once I wake D, all things are still okay. I have a little anxiety at leaving her for so long, but we will be no more than a few hours away. She is nervous about it too, although she wants me to go. My oldest son is coming here later to stay most of the day, and they always have a good time together, so she won't be alone all day.

I want to thank each of you for all your kind words here, and on D's blog. Your encouragement has meant alot to me, and she is really surprised at how wonderful each of you are. I, of course, was not. :) I also need to apologize for not making it to your blogs as regularly as I want to, but after this week, that will change. I have still been working really hard, then falling onto the couch, but I am almost caught up. It's a good thing, too - as the end of January is almost upon us...but I wanted to let you know, that I will be back to read each of you every day like I always have, soon. I have missed so much with you guys---or I have read it, but haven't had the time to comment.

I hope you all have wonderful, peaceful days today. I hope your weather is going to be as beautiful as mine.

Well this visit couldn't be coming at a better time for both of you. You have a great time with Soul. Laugh til your sides hurt and just rejoice in being with your buddy from down South. I'm sure D will be ok with her brother and glad to hear she is still hanging in there.

Have a wonderful time and can't wait to hear all about your lunch when you get back. Drive carefully and enjoy the warmth.

Enjoy your visit! It seems you're both due for a great time, a reason to laugh, a good friend to hug.

I have to get my map out and look... for your meeting point :)

You know what, if I drive 6 hours east, and your drive 6 hours west... I guess we both will see SNOW, instead of Soul :)
