Home safe

Well I made it to Missouri again and back...
You will all be in shock (those who know me) I took a grand total of 15 pictures!  
ok pick yourselves up off the ground,
I really had some things I wanted to take pics of but when driving I could not or would not did not stop and camera and driving are kinda along the lines of texting and driving... not the best idea. 
Mount Eagle was amazing as ever I love spring time and seeing the rushing waterfalls but there just is no safe places to stop and take pictures.
I went OVER a couple bridges and flyovers that I would have liked to take pictures on but with my fear of heights and general panic when driving over them again, not conducive to taking pictures.

I got to see some people I have not seen in over 20 years but at my first stop I simply forgot to carry my camera in... I stopped in st louis to see my cousins Glenn and Martha, had not seen them since I was 17, I think .... THANK YOU FACEBOOK for allowing us to reconnect....
Also stopped for supper Monday night with Billy and Nikki,

I had not seen Nikki since high school and Billy, he and his first wife (my cousin) are who took me in off the streets when I was 16, I lived with them for 2 and a half years.  Had not seen him in 20 years AGAIN THANK YOU FACEBOOK for allowing us to reconnect.  absolutely LOVED getting to see and spend some time with them :)

Mom was good, I actually got two of my cousins to go with me to visit her and she totally ... ok sort of behaved herself...she behaved well with Mindy and sort of well with Beth... I was so glad they both came with me to visit.  Sometimes those visits are so hard. Mom can be so demanding, and toss in on top of it all I just did not feel the greatest this trip. 

I got to go to supper with Ron and Kimmy and Aunt Betty at a place in Quincy Il, called THE PATIO it was delish and other than being a bit dark inside a really nice place. We had a wonderful supper and even more wonderful company :)

I actually made awesome time driving but am so darn stiff and sore today... GAH
Cant wait to see my babies tomorrow I did miss them...
Am so ready to get into my OWN bed... and hopefully sleep more than 3-4 hours...

Hope you have had a wonderful week will be attempting to catch up with you all soon!
God Bless.

Sounds like you had a much needed seeing old friends vacation and I can hear in your voice you had a wonderful time! Whoo hoo for Peach!

I'm also glad you're home safely. I used to be that way about bridges. Still am over high ones. Ugh....

I am happy you are home safe and had a nice visit! I am proud of you for driving so much alone on these trips--it's not that easy and you are a brave lady!
