(Mom is having a hard time typing right now and is trying to find a speech to text software that will work on the internet so it is easier to get things written)

We hope evfurryone had a wonderful Christmas!

PS Mom is sorry we haven't updated much this week. It was a very hard week for her and the trip to Mayo was a disaster. She has needed both Lola and I to help and comfort her. We will get back to regular posting and commenting this week!

Wordless Wednesday-Perks on the Road

(Note from Mom: Dixie is very happy that we have a double bed and extra pillows for her in the hotel. We were sharing a single bed at my grandparents and that is not up to her standards)

On the road again! We just can't wait to get on the road again!

That's right, we are getting ready to travel again. Mom has to go back to the Mayo Clinic place because her pain has spread to her good side and we need to look into more treatment options so she doesn't lose function in her good arm.
Tomorrow we leave for Charleston, SC to visit Mom's grandparents. It is hard for Mom to travel in the car for long periods so it is best to break it up and give her a day to rest. This means we will do an early Christmas with them then leave on the 23rd for Florida.
We will go to Mom's appointment at Mayo on Christmas Eve then we will drive back home to hopefully be able to take part in our big Christmas Eve dinner. We invite friends and family to this every year and it is Mom's favorite part of Christmas.
We will try to blog from the road, but don't know how our internet access will be!

Mom is very busy with exam season

We are very sorry we haven't updated. Last week and this coming week are filled with projects bring due and exams for Mom, so she has been on the computer any time she isn't sleeping. Because she needs to pass her classes, we are letting her hog the computer and taking a break from the blog until she is finished!
