Coast to Coast

To infinity and beyond ...! Okay, we didn't go quite that far this last week, but we both traveled ‘coast-to-coast’ in our own ways. Easter Sunday, Kitty saw Greg off on a business trip to Norfolk and Virginia Beach, VA, then she drove coast-to-coast across Missouri (well, river-to-river anyway) to spend more time with Ella, Will, Kim, and Doug. Now that is an adventure in itself, and as always she had a great time visiting with the kids and playing with the grandkids. It’s so hard to believe that Ella’s 1st birthday is just around the corner.

Kitty drove back to St. Louis on Friday just in time for Greg to call from the Dallas-Ft. Worth airport where he was stuck all night due to the severe storms that rumbled through the Midwest. At 2:00am it just didn't seem worth it to try to go to a hotel, but here’s a life discovery moment: Greg’s getting too old to stay up all night, and also too old to sleep in airport gate seating. Oh well, another adventure ...

American Airlines got him home first class on Saturday; then it was a fast weekend before Greg left again – this time for LA. Coast-to-coast over the weekend may also sound like a lot of fun, even normal for some people, but it sure plays havoc with your sleeping and eating habits!

Thankfully, this was a short business trip and Greg's on the way back (through DFW again), then we’ll both be safely home for a while, making plans to visit family and friends during the rest of the year. So watch out! You never know when we might be dropping in on you – whether you live east or west, north or south, or anywhere in between!
