Taking a Road Trip...

I'll be leaving on an unexpected trip to Arizona first thing tomorrow morning. My great-grandmother passed away yesterday so my sisters, brother and I are driving down for the funeral. It should be about a 21 hour drive. We hope to do 11 hours tomorrow and the rest on Thursday. It would be nicer to fly, but none of us can afford the plane tickets, so it should be an adventure, especially since it is winter road conditions through Montana and Idaho. So I won't be around for a few days.

On another note, go check out the list of books eligible for the Whitney Awards. There are 95 books on the list now and I am sure there are more out there. So get some reading done over the holidays and then go place your nominations. All nominations must be done by December 31, 2007.

I'm sorry for your loss Stephanie. I bet this trip with siblings could be way fun! Despite the circumstances.

Hugs to you.

Oops Stephanie! I just now see that Rebecca tagged you for somethin' ... and so did I! Guess that means you're popular? Just whenever you have time ... or never ... just was thinking of you and always like to read about you!

Thanks for the hugs and warm thoughts. Grandma graduated this life with honours and we know that she is on to her next adventure.

Ali and Rebecca - I'll get to the tag in the next day or two.
