Trip Across the Country

There has been a lot happening here since I last wrote.  I went to Friday morning mass to see Maria serve.  I bowed in front of the alter and went to turn.  As I turned my foot came out of my sandal, then down I went.  It all happened like I was in slow motion.  I was trying to grab the pew with one hand.  The other hand went behind me to try to catch myself.  I fell on the ball of my hand.  I went home and David left for work.  I took the neighbor shopping but when we got home my hand was killing me. David got me to the doctor.  I broke my wrist,  to be exact it is a scaphoid fracture in the wrist.  I had to wear a splint for a week and a half.  Now I am in a cast that keeps my thumb from moving.  It will come off on January 12 when we get home.

I had to finish making the Christmas presents which was kind of hard with one hand.  They are all done and ready to go.

We went to pick up our motorhome, Merida, and it wouldn’t start.  David ended up replacing all 3 batteries.  What a difference it made.

I got her loaded up yesterday with some help from Christina and Maria.  We just have a few things to load today before we leave on our trip to spend Christmas with Sarah and Steve’s family.  Also, Cade and his daughter, Brodie, will be moving back to York with us.

We are excited about our long trip.  We will be making some side trips to checkout different things.  The first main stop will be Mount Rushmore.  It will take us a couple days to get there.  We don’t want to drive to long, 6 to 8 hours a day is what we are trying to do.  Of course, if we see something to go check out it might be shorter or longer.

We will be leaving this morning.

I will try to post when I can.

Thanks for stopping by!
