Grand Adventure, part 1

6 Dec

It’s been a few weeks now since my grand adventure.

What, I didn’t share with you that I was going on a grand adventure?!?!  Tsk. Tsk.

A couple weeks before Thanksgiving, a friend and I had plans to go to the Matt Nathanson concert in Minneapolis.  I was also invited to my aunt’s to help put quilt tops together for a children’s hospital in the Cities (the Twin Cities-Minneapolis and St. Paul-for those non-MN natives).  I also wanted to try to see my great grandparents.  The week after the concert I had a Dr. appointment.  And the following week the hubby and I would be heading to my folks for Thanksgiving.  Well…here’s how it went down…

Make decision about how the next couple weeks play out.  Decide to go to MN for 2 1/2 weeks.  Book flight for hubby from Milwaukee to Minneapolis.  Cancel Dr. appointment and reschedule for the next day.  Start the packing list.  Go to Dr. appointment and have 12 lab tests done (unexpectedly-Thank God for insurance).  Start packing.  Pick up house.  Buy some groceries for hubby.  Pack car.  Drive 6 hours to Woodbury.  Quilt for 3 days.  Go to Matt Nathanson concert.  Visit great grandparents on great grandma’s 95th birthday.  Drive 3 1/2 hours to folks.  Help dad with Christmas presents.  Visit friend.  Make place mats.  Sew quilt top.  Fix mom’s coat.  Go to Minneapolis to pick up hubby.  Play games.  Eat Turkey.  Open Christmas presents.  Drive 8 hours to in-laws.  Celebrate hubby’s birthday.  Go home.

I think that about sums up my grand adventure.  More to follow.  I’m exhausted thinking back to everything that happened and must now lay down and let my head stop spinning.

The spinning may also be from the fumes of cleaning our tub…
