Before I say anything else: I had a GREAT time with Nancy Rue!!!! I was SO surprised when we walked in the restaurant (I think it was called Cuckoo's Nest or something) and there was Mrs. Rue, my fave author! My mom already posted all the pictures we took. We talked for two and a half hours! What I really liked about her is that she wasn't like, "OK, I really have to get back and finish packing [which she actually did need to do], so I'll get this cutesy little mommy-daughter-meets-author thing over with so I can leave." She let me get all excited in the beginning, and then the three of us talked and talked like we were long lost friends! :-) It was great getting to meet her - and she gave me three awesome books she wrote, too, signed by her, along with three bookmarks.
We had a good little church late this morning, we ate lunch about a half an hour down the road, and then we had a fairly short drive to this campground in Alabama. And then, after parking and getting level and hooking up and everything, a young adult came by and she explained that sadly we were in a ‘buddy site’, which means we have to have another RV next to us. Great. So tomorrow morning we are either going move to another site, or Dad is going to sweet talk our way out of it. J But back up to two days ago when we checked into our hotel after a delicious dinner and interesting exploration of Opryland (hey, you would call it ‘interesting’, too, if you saw a gigantic zebra with a guitar and a huge panda bear dressed up like Santa Claus or something. Nathan named the panda bear 'Panda Claws'.) Nathan and Noah shared a double bed, Nicholas stretched out on the queen-sized pull out couch, and I slept like a baby – a very comfortable baby – on the other double bed (Mom and Dad had a room next to us). I had been having some problems sleeping lately, but that night I didn’t wake up once. In the morning, when I did wake up, I was full of energy and was done with my quiet time when the boys were rubbing their sleepy eyes. J I had a good night’s sleep last night, too. I think I just need to get to sleep at about 10 and wake up at about 7:30 – that still gives me a total of nine and a half hours of sleep!!
Anyway, before I make you go to sleep, I need to go to sleep so I’ll end here. Hope you all have a great week!! God bless.
