All the pictures are off the walls now, packed up and it’s time for a trip to the storage place. 

In the midst of all that, my son arrived home from China. He had a great time overall, and it has been fun to see his pictures and hear his stories.

Then on Saturday afternoon we drove to Charlotte for him to redeem a NASCAR driving experience certificate we had given him 2-1/2 years ago! He went 151.59 mph! It’s quite a different population of people who frequent the speedway.Image

It was an interesting experience and he said it was quite an adrenaline rush. I felt it too, and I was just watching!

He’s headed back to Wilmington soon and my daughter is arriving on Monday! I hope to make a final push this week while she is here to get everything into storage that needs to go.

My kids’ grandmother very thoughtfully sent me a package in anticipation of my travels and I am anticipating a fun going away dinner Monday evening.

The main worries left to me are whether or not I will get my papers authenticated in time to travel and what to do with my house if it doesn’t sell before I leave. These are biggies, but I am trying to continue to trust it will all work out.
