The gift of time...



You know that quote about best laid plans? Well, mine went right out the window last night. We had some friends stop over and my timeline, which was tight beyond belief anyway went by the wayside. The things I needed to do would have kept the household awake with me all night so I just had to give up.

So, wonder of wonders, the staffing office called as I was getting ready for work and put me on call for the 3-11 shift and called me off entirely for the 11-7 shift., I just got handed 16.5 hours to get it all done. Woo hoo!

Someone asked in email where Emily and Wendell live, they live in Orlando. So, Chris, I'll wave as we go through Knoxville! And Lynn, I'll be throwing you a wave as well. Is there anyone else I'll be driving past on our way?

Jimmy just called and suggested that since Sarah Kate is off work tomorrow we should just take Austin out of school tomorrow and hit the road either tonight or in the morning. It would give us a whole extra day so I'm thinking about that. Austin wanted perfect attendance this year, but he's already missed one day early in the school year. He'll get some kind of recognition for only missing one day so I think I'll leave it up to him to decide.

Okay, well, I guess it's time to make the most of my found hours.
