Happy Travels..... has already been a very fast morning!  I'm praying traveling mercy's over these three good looking guys, who will be traveling today, to West Texas to get ready hunt a few deer.

Goodness, your wouldn't believe how much stuff has to be packed, just to go and hang out at a deer camp.   I'm hoping they have a great time and that they come home with enough meat to fill my freezer!!

My family will actually be scattered this weekend......from West Texas, to Vegas, to Colorado, to Trinity Mother Frances Hospital.

A few weeks ago, Tom (Shanda's husband/our son-in-law) had surgery on his Achilles' Tendon.  He was doing great and then suddenly, his heel turned red.....INFECTION!!   Yesterday afternoon, the Doctor had to go back in and open up his incision in order to flush out the infection.  He is in the hospital and will continue on intravenous antibiotics for a few days.  

Trista is flying out today to Vegas, with her MIL and SIL to attend a wedding for a relative of theirs.   Josh and his family have lived out in that area for several years now and I know that they will be so super excited to see their Texas relatives, as they arrive today.

Ty is in Colorado......the state that I would love to be visiting right now!  I know the colors of the Aspens are absolutely gorgeous!!

We are having some cooler temps right now, so for that reason, tomorrow just may be the perfect day to take "Sugar Baby" and "Sassy" to the zoo!    BTW.....Sugar Baby is Tori's nickname and Sassy is Miss Mylee Jo's nickname...

One thing is for sure......I see some well needed  R & R in my weekend.   Other than the possible trip to the weekend is going to be stress free and full of time for ME!!

Happy Hunting to my guys......Happy Celebrating to Trista and her other family.....and Happy weekend to each of you!!

May we all find a meaningful need today and do our best to lend a hand....

Hi Shug!

Good luck to your hunters!! Prayers to your son-in-law, I pray that all goes well for him.

I love to travel, and have often wished that my kids lived somewhere where I could travel to visit...then I change my mind when I see them again! I'm such a baby when it comes to my grands!!

FAbUlOUS! You will for sure have some good ME time, to do whatever you want. Ouch, I hope the foot heals soon! Who cuts apart and skins the deer?

Enjoy that well-deserved Me time.

Prayers sent for a safe trip- I know they will have a wonderful time. I hope you have a great weekend!

Well, you guys will be really spread out. My man will be heading to the woods early in the morning too, but it's just up the road. He's been getting ready for weeks and weeks. Worse than a kid!

Ugh, sorry about your SIL. That could be serious, so glad they caught it.

Enjoy YOUR weekend!

wow Shug, your family IS all over the country this weekend. May they all have memories to share when they return, especially those hunters. Do they go on guided hunts? Our guys are on their own., bow hunting. May your grill be filled with venison loins soon.
Have a most restful time while they are away.

Sounds like a busy weekend for your family--scattered around in different areas of the country. Sorry to hear about Tom's infection. Hope they 'fix' it soon.

Sounds like you will be enjoying some of the grands this weekend yourself.... Have fun!
