Thanks to instructions by Leah (thank you!), if I did it right, whatever I wrote for yesterday posted while I was en route to San Antonio yesterday.

If I do it right again, this will post while I am en route from S.A. to New Mexico, and meeting up with the rest of our friends.

Also, if my Sweetie is on top of his game, he is home today with the kids to make sure #1 Son is awakened on time for his morning class, #2 Son is packed and ready to go when Grandpa gets there to pick him up to go to the out of town football game, Bigger Girl and neighbor boy get picked up from school, and Little Girl gets her work done. He will also order the pizza for dinner (I tried to make everything as easy for him as possible), and just generally try to keep the kids from burning the place down or letting anything get too out of hand.

I'm trying not to think about how the laundry is piling up...

  1. It worked! I'm always nervous whenever I pre-publish posts, but it usually goes fine.

    Hope you're enjoying your adventure!
