Shh, I am a little prepared.

I was all shook up about missing Pooka's challenge tomorrow as I was packing for our trip. Sooo,

I have a question for you scrapaddicts. What do you take with you when you go out of town in the middle of some very important challenges? This is a photo of my emergency scrap tote. My DH did not think I packed anything until I took my laptop tote out just now. Earlier, I opened my suitcase and he commented that he thought it would be full of scrapbook stuff because it was so heavy. He seemed surprised to see clothes in there. ha! ha! Fooled him (for awhile anyway). My rascal son ratted me out! I hid away a few ink pads and a few stamps, some scissors, glue stick, pop dots, various sizes/colors of rhinestones, several colors and sizes of pre-cut cardstock in with my laptop. (It WAS a very good hiding place) I have checked the phonebook here. No Michael's, AC Moore, Hobby Lobby or even JoAnn's. What do these folks do?
We will see some things here in Washington tomorrow. There is an Estuarium that offers river excursions aboard an Aqualab. Sounds fun, huh? Then, we are heading to the Outer Banks. This is a long overdue trip. We tried going the year before they moved the lighthouse but we had van trouble on the way (twice). That is a long story so I won't tell it. Those of you who know me have heard it, I am sure. I will say that I cried (a lot) on that trip which was cut short and I did not get to see the lighthouse in it's original place which was NOT the worst part of the trip.
Being here, comfortable in our hotel with some of my favorite people (DH, DS#9 and DS#10) sure makes life good. We just went swimming and I enjoyed the hottub alone. Barry can not do hottubs as much since his blood pressure became an issue. We have a lot of hope for our visit with Dr. Fekrat. I pray that God will lead her to the proper treatment to restore Barry's vision. The fabulous front desk clerk, Jessica just brought us (she called and asked first if she could) a bowl of chocolate chip cookies that she made today. (Yikes, I ate 3) She is a sweet, young girl with some turmoil going on in her family. She and I talked for awhile at the desk when I checked in. (The Lord sent us to this hotel) Please pray for her family with me. Pray for forgiveness and healing and love between them (peace in their family).
Ok, enough right? Gnight all. I will try to get in on the challenge tomorrow if I have the supplies. Thanks, friends. I love you, every single reader and friend.

I enjoy reading your blog and looking at all the wonderful cards you have beem making. Hope you and the family have a safe and fun trip. I will pray for the young lady you spoke about. Also, praying for the doctor that examines Barry's eyes. We know that Barry and this situation is in the Lord's hands. Love ya girl!

LOL! Debbie and I went to a convention and packed tons of scrapbook stuff, but we had to stop at Walmart once we got there because I forgot shoes and pjs and shorts and just about everything that I was SUPPOSED to NEED! LOL!
