I'm outta here!

Well I'm on the countdown before I leave town. I can smell the mountain air now. But I'll be sure and stop by Wal-mart to pick up some Benadryl in case I smell the mountain air too much. Are anyone else's allergies just in overdrive right now???? I have finally gotten my asthma under control, but it's still not great.

I've got two books to take with me. I'll finish up the John Elderedge book, and then I've got another I want to start on while I'm there. There's not really a set plan for what we're doing, and really you can do whatever you want. So I really hope to have some quiet time. There will be other kids there, because you were given the option to bring your children, but they're mostly older kids.

Last night I got a little tripped up about "the date" tomorrow, but I just have to look at it as another day on the calendar. I don't want to be sad, so I'm just not going to be sad. I can look at this two ways and only two ways. The glass is either half full or half empty. And yes, there has been sadness, but there is so much to look forward to. So I am just really choosing to look at my anniversary as a day for something more for my life. Not as a day that is celebrating the loss that I have experienced. I'm doing too well to have that loom over me and get me down.

My sister Jenny is keeping Madi and Mason. Kyle is going with Colt and SuzAnne to Ft. Sumner where Colt's parents live. They live out in the country and have lots of horses and cows. Kyle will have his first experience with riding a horse. I'm so excited for him, because I know he will have so much fun. I told SuzAnne to take lots of pictures. Sometimes I feel like Kyle gets left out, because he is the middle child, so I am thrilled that he gets to do this.

Anyways, well I have got lots to do before I am ready to go. I hope you all have a great weekend. God bless!

Going down the road to Ruidoso reminds me of driving a big white car through the mountains with my best friend to one of my favorite summer memories.
