Tonight we are in Manchester, Tennessee!! WE left this morning from my parents house about 7:15. We drove to Effingham, Illinois and stopped at a Cracker Barrel for breakfast!! As always we had a great breakfast. I was hoping that it would make Mike feel better but he is really stuffed up with a bad cold!!
We stopped several times today and finally have arrived here!! It is good to stop often, get out and walk some!! After my little fall the other night, I am finding that a few more things are hurting!! My fingers are finally getting better but still swollen!! They are turning purple!!
The weather has went from cold to just plain comfortable!! Also tonight we have water in our motor home and FINALLY I got to do the dishes!! They have been sitting since last Thursday but now are finally all done, dried and put away!! That is not what i usually do so was glad to get them all done and the tiny kitchen all cleaned up!!
Mikey is having a time breathing tonight!! This crazy cold is really getting him down..so i remembered an old remedy that my mother used to do when we kids.. You boil some water, put Vicks in it and then put your face in it with a towel covering all of your head. It just makes a great steam bath for you nose. Mikey cannot breathe so is having a time trying to breathe the Vicks in!! He keeps doing it. Hopefully in the morning he will be feeling so much better!! After all he is our driver!!
We saw a fire along the highway today!! It looked like a trailer with hay on it caught fire and it was burning really well!! The trailer was gone and of course the hay was not far behind...
WEll that is about it from the rolling home of US!! We have a long long trip tomorrow!! Hopefully the wind will not be high..that is our biggest problem!
Thought for the day:
