been working a lot...and studying. I put off my exam for another few weeks, tho.

Don't put it off too long!  Just GO for it and trust you've done your diligence.  God has a plan for you!!  Trust it!!

DH is starting his 2nd week at the new job in Colorado.

That's great!  I am glad this one is in the same area in CO so you don't have to get wheels up and move somewhere else.  Even though that sounds like fun once or twice!

Oh. My. Stars!  Your dear friend is so blessed to have you taking care of all those things around her home for her.  When she comes home she will first look at her house and feel like she has a whole new home.  I am sure, knowing you, you are not just making arrangements but cleaning and freshening up her home too.  

Do take CARE of yourself during all of this.  I am sure Anita will lean on you when she first gets home too.  I'll be praying for your dear friend and YOU!!  

I'll say it again...  YOU are a blessing!!!

ETA:  I'm sorry I posted this before reading everything I've missed.  I am bummed for you your trip is not happening.

 

Viola!!!  Now you will be driving to OH helping another friend move!!!  I am so glad you will be spending time with your dear son in TN for his 50th birthday!!!  We drove through a bit of TN when we went back to see dear friends in OH and it is so green and beautiful.  And we really enjoyed OH too.  Those states are so different from CA with the long stretches of multi lane highways with large grassy median and side areas on either side of the road.  The widest we seem to have in CA is Hwy 5 that runs north to south in the center of CA but the government even had to claim imminent domain (and still tries to) in necessary grazing and farmland of the central part of the state.  

Enjoy your trip and take plenty of time for stops and even quilt shop visits along your way just to relax and enjoy some eye candy!

We use the honor system. 

Ohioans who have been out of state just go to their home and stay there. (Friends/relatives will bring groceries if needed.) We trust our visitors to self-quarantine themselves, so if you are coming to visit a family member you stay with that person and do not leave their home.

How reasonable that is!  Treat adults like adults.  

What a concept.  

Pretty much a foreign concept here in crazy CA...

Oh Viola.  I am so sorry you don't see your son for his 50th birthday.  I should have read all the way through all the posts first.  

Hopefully you can make that trip soon.

I wish we were not gearing up for in person just yet......

Sorry, guess you got a rant from me.  This is my hot spot these days.

That is exactly as my sister feels too.  Everyone is on edge and the politics of everyday life working at a school are stressful at best in "normal" times.  I'll be thinking about you all and saying some prayers for wisdom and protection!  Linda's school had staff report back on campus starting yesterday so I haven't heard how that went yet or if there were many no shows.

I'd better remind DJ and his cousin to look up the states they are driving through.  DJ was planning to drive his car back to Atlanta so he'd have a car at school and a possible off campus internship/PT job in the area.  His cousin, Danny, was going to go with him and to explore areas along the way and see some Natl Parks etc. (Danny is a Park Mngmt major) and then Danny would fly home from ATL. 

Now with DJ taking all of his classes on line this semester from home (as advise by his professors) the two will go on a revised road trip going as far east as Denver and north to Yellowstone and OR.  These two have been best buddies since birth as they are 6 months apart in age so I am sure they will have a ball together.  

Thanks for the great reminder.  DJ said he checks the states they will be going through each day and, when we ask, says they all check out OK.  I haven't asked recently...
