Tomorrow we'll be in Texas and I get excited just picturing the mayhem that will happen when my girls see us pulling into the driveway. They've been gone for far too long. Not that I haven't fully appreciated the quiet, the peace, the ability to go out to dinner without ordering chicken nuggets, etc. I'm just ready to see them.

Over the next two weeks, we'll spend a few days in Texas with my family, a few days at China Camp in Oklahoma, a few days camping in Arkansas, and lots of time in the car burning gas. Woohoo! I worried about the security issues of telling the world we'll be out of town and away from the homestead for a couple of weeks, but

  • we live in a fairly quiet community
  • we have someone checking on our home
  • we have a security system known as Tinker, the cat, who would trip up any would-be burglar by winding herself around his legs begging for food
  • we don't have anything here worth stealing anyway
I have made the decision that I will not be blogging during our trip. It would be difficult to get a connection and we'll be busy doing, you know, family bonding and all that. So I am officially disconnecting for 2 weeks. I'm not even taking my laptop with me.

I totally twitched when I typed that last sentence.

I am taking pens, a notebook or two, and my Bible. I plan to get some writing and studying done the old-fashioned way - hard-cover Bible (not, paper (not Pages), and longhand (not typing). Don't worry, I'll be sure to write down all the funny stuff that happens on our trip and post it when we get back.

As for now, I am signing off and getting back to packing and cleaning. See you in two weeks!
