Back in TN for the Present

Hey, Y'all,
It is nearly 11 p.m. and I have been on TN soil for just about 10 hours, and have not accomplished a whole lot, but some. I've been taking care of important stuff that has to be done soon. I have also relaxed with some television and done a little more packing, beginning with the room in which I am sitting. My computer/sewing/television viewing/workroom is where I am at the moment.

My flight from DFW was smooth and when I went through the security section of the airport, I got to go through the machine that x-rays the body without using magnetic imagery. Way cool! Carol got me to the airport in plenty of time, and I had time to read some while waiting to board the plane. If I ever say that I am planning on taking someone to the airport, remind me that I don't want to do that thing. Carol said not to worry because there will always be someone to take me or a friend, because they would not want to turn me loose on others driving into that place. I told her that she could be sure I would not want to be driving ever to the DFW. It would drive me crazy as well as those around me. Ha.

My good friend Ina is driving with me to take my car to Texas when I return in a couple of weeks. Carol will be taking her to the airport, so don't worry, Ina, we will see that you get there safely and on time.

I don't have long to write tonight because I still have to take my bedtime meds, and crawl under the kivvers and get up in time to go to the doctor and have bloodwork done for my regular checkup. Then after breakfast, Laurie and Olivia will come down for a couple of hours and help me pack up dishes and canned foods. Around lunch time I will be headed into Knoxville for "Movie Day" with Mae and Imazo. I look forward to spending some time with them.

Laurie and Olivia picked me up today from the airport and it was wonderful to see them again. I am going to miss all my friends and family here when I leave in a couple of weeks, but we will keep in touch. I had trouble getting online this afternoon and had to call the HughesNet technical support, and they helped me. I found out that I actually own the modem and satellite dish. They told me I could sell it on Ebay or what ever I wanted to do with it. I guess I will take it with me and maybe my techie grandson, Matt, can do something with it. Who knows?

Well, it is 11:15 and tomorrow is another day. I still have to bring in my suitcase from the car and get my meds out of it. This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for now. More later. Much love to each of you. BTW, Gramps is being checked on by family in Texas while I am here. How wonderful it is going to be to be so close to them out there. Now I won't have to be green with envy when they get together because I will be there getting together with them. Love to each of you, my friends and family. Bye for now.

I, too, am glad you will have someone with you on your trip. You are a brave soul to do all that driving, packing, moving, etc. I am so glad you will be near your family, too. I bet Gramps is missing you already!

Don't let it overwhelm you, Ruby.

Just take one day at a time. That's my motto, Ruby.
