Wednesday, April 20 was an early rise day meeting the Curvettes for breakfast at 6:45 in Ephrata to discuss our trip to Watkins Glen. From there I went to Wal-Mart for a few groceries. When I got home I started some packing for the trip and loading some things to take to mom later.
Ken and I had an appointment with our financial advisor and from there went to Masonic Homes to play Pinochle with Mom and Dad. It was a fun afternoon. I was extremely sleepy on the drive there, probably because I didn't have my "needed" chai this morning for that boost of caffeine. I can't believe I have gotten so "hooked" on that stuff!
We left there around 4:45 and stopped at John and Cindy's for a short time and then took a moderate walk when we got home. I spent the evening recording our expenses in our budget program - what fun! Where does all that money go????
Thursday morning I did some wash and then spent a lot of time packing for the Watkins Glen adventure. How can it take so long and do you "think" you need so much stuff for a 3 day, 2 night trip??? It's crazy, but the weather forecast and temperatures for that area caused me to pack "layers" of clothing.
Ken and I went for a long walk in the 70 degree temperature. It was a very nice day. When we returned we called our youngest granddaughter, Katelyn, to sing Happy Birthday. She turned 5 today. We grilled for dinner and I spent the evening making cards while Ken read.
I did get a phone call from Noela today and they signed up for Passport America, a membership for RVer's that gets you in to many campgrounds at a reduced rate. She also made reservations for the CG where we will be staying for 1 week in Mesa, Arizona when Dane is participating in the Ironman competition. It's exciting!
Planned to go to bed early, but only turned off the light around 10:30.
