It’s like Christmas Eve – only hotter

Ok!  So here I am, writing for last time for a month or so from my sweet sea foam green metal desk circa 1978.  I love this desk, it’s metal and it has great drawers.  But, I’m leaving it behind for a while and I could not be more excited.

I know that I should be providing pictures but it’s raining out, so I’ll take on when I leave in the morning, I promise.  I have a 2017 Nissan Murano, Silver with MN plates for my trip.  It only has like 3500 miles on it.  Enterprise hooked me up.  She is beautiful and has many bells and whistles.  She still smells like a new car.

To say I’m excited right now would be an understatement.  I love traveling and seeing new things and the best part about the trip is that I also get to see people I haven’t seen in a long time.  So in the morning I leave for Colorado via Kentucky, South Carolina, Florida, Mississippi, Texas, Arizona and many more states in between.  I will definitely be able to pick up some new magnets and hopefully a million new pictures.
