Duckin In on My Way Out

Yesterday I drove my Mother to Waco (about 5 hours) so that she could have lunch with an ex neighbor of hers. This was my idea. Coming back, we stopped in Gainesville and stayed the night at a hotel with a heated pool, where we did water aerobics and sat in the hot tub.

I've taken many long trips for silly reasons, and picked many hotels for the pool or the view or whatever, but I've never done that with my Mother before. And you know what, I'm glad I did.

Now I've picked up the dogs and I'm off to water aerobics, but I wanted to wave hi hi hi to everyone.

What a marvelous way to celebrate Mom time. I wish I still had the chance to do it.
