|Love writing reviews and reading. Love to write and see family. Life is short, live it, love it, cherish it!|
We stopped for gas but also we stopped at the Virginia welcome center. I’m in Virginia and getting closer to home but I think we will have to stop again tonight.
It would be wise to stop tonight because I like to relax and sleep at night and my grandfather cannot drive at night.
So it will take longer to get home but it’s better to be safe.
I miss my boyfriend a lot but will see him soon and just looking forward to being home.
Hopefully Kayden would like to see the Pikachu detective movie that is out next month, I would love to take him.
Not much else to write about, my grandfather wants to get a little further in Virginia so we are going to drive for a little bit.
I did drive ...
We have stopped in Florence, SC and I think we are maybe 200 miles from NC but not sure.
It’s ok because my family and I are almost halfway and I think we have a 12 drive left.
The funny thing is, my grandfather says we have like 600 miles but I looked on google and that said 800 miles and the maps app say 936 miles so I guess we will find out how far we get tomorrow.
I’m happy to be going home and I told my boyfriend that I was heading north which he is happy too.
Hopefully we get home tomorrow but it’s ok if we stop again because rest is important.
Okay going to watch the History channel with my family then bed after. I ate too much food at dinner and may have ate to fast.
On a quick stop to eat and use the bathroom before getting back on the road. We are getting closer to getting out of Florida.
Now it’s time to get back on the road and get closer to home.
The sun is out here in Florida which is nice but my arm is getting a sunburn while on a car, lol.
Before I lose reception, I will post this and then write again when we leave Florida.
There are a lot of crazy drivers here in Florida.
I still love this paper and think letters should keep it.
Anyways I have some exciting news!!!
We are heading home! I have not had much fun on this trip but I’m more excited to go home.
It may take 3 days but I’m just happy to be heading north finally!
I love Florida but not sitting in a vehicle driving the whole day. Wish my family stayed longer at Anna Marie Island too, it’s beautiful and it was relaxing.
Well I at least had a vacation even though I was stuck in a vehicle most of the time but I did take vacation time from work for this trip.
I will still write where we stop and what is going on.
I hope Tuesday treats all of you well.
I like this paper and I’m back in Bradenton, did go to Anna Marie Island but didn’t stay long which made me sad. I do however have a small sunburn which is ok and I enjoyed the water.
I’m still ready to go home but today was a little better.
My family and I are at Cracker Barrel which is not my fave restaurant but it’s food.
Hope to return north sooner than later.
Well here I am again. Stayed in another motel with a bathroom which has no working light!
I understand my grandfather being on a budget but can’t we find a better hotel?
The bed was more comfortable than the last few hotels so that is a plus.
I’m ready to go home, I’m trying to have fun but I’m not really having fun. I’m tired of being in a van for days and yes it takes time to get to where you are going but honestly, we just need to stop! Or go home.
Hoping today goes better, I was awake too early and just miss home.
Well it’s still early and no I have not had time to enjoy the sunshine, may write another letter later.
Another stop along the way. Last nights hotel was 0 stars and they didn’t have smoke detectors installed!!! I won’t stay at that hotel again.
We are in the Tampa area of Florida and stopped to eat for lunch and it’s Sunday of course.
It was great to see all the different outfits because a lot of people were coming in from church and Easter activities.
As for me I’m lounging in comfortable clothes and keeping the car door open to let the breeze come in.
I still miss my man and want to be home in my own bed. I don’t want to travel anymore, just want to be home.
Well my family and I are getting gas and thought this would be a great time to post a letter.
The hotel we stayed at had the worst beds, very uncomfortable and I didn’t sleep well again.
Been texting my special man and miss him but I send him pics of where I’m at and know it makes him smile.
We are about to get back on the road, almost into South Carolina and South of the Boarder. May have misspelled that.
Hoping to get into Florida tonight but will see what happens. Now we are done with gas and leaving.
Yay for Easter paper and a Easter stamp.
Okay, good news is finally in a hotel, showered and relaxing. I’m doing better than when I was up at 3am and crying while my grandfather did the driving.
I think I’m used to going at my own pace and planning and would honestly rather fly, and my grandfather planned this trip and it stresses me out.
It’s weird but makes sense and it’s tough because I am helping my grandfather out and my niece too. So it’s just the 3 of us and my grandfathers health is not the greatest either.
My niece is handicap too so she needs help, this is more a work vacation then an actual vacation.
We got lost in New York and I would never drive through New York ever! There ...
So I’m just using whatever paper and stamp comes up because I’m trying to conserve battery power.
My grandfather was dead set on leaving 3am and we are heading to Florida.
I have cried 3 or 4 times, didn’t sleep well and I just want to be home. I miss my special man and want to see him too but I can’t.
It will be a rough 10 days,is it normal to cry and be sad and miss my special guy?
I like this paper because it’s so vibrant and colorful.
Today I am very tired, I didn’t want to get out of bed but I did because I have 2 jobs and I need to earn money to pay bills but I do wish I could have stayed in bed.
Work was ok today but still stressed out and want to sleep.
Good news is I started packing! It’s not a lot but it’s better than not packing. Need to get my overnight bag set first then the suitcase next.
I really want to stay home and not go to Florida, I know you may think I’m crazy for saying that but it’s how I feel.
Not much else is new but I did want to say that I may not write in letters everyday while on vacation but will try.
Going to bring my knittin...
I’m not doing any better. I’m tired and stressed out and work is not helping in any way either. I want to just cry and stay home!
I really don’t want to go to Florida, don’t get me wrong I love Florida but with last minute packing, dealing with work and everything else is not good for me.
I would rather stay home and relax and not go. I really want to cry right now and it sucks I feel this way.
Hello everyone! How are you? I’m hoping Monday is treating you well. I am trying to get stuff together because I’m going to Florida Friday morning.
I’m going with family and we are driving down so that means leaving very early Friday morning.
I haven’t packed anything and I need an overnight bag with all my needs which seems like a lot! I’m sure it’s not but I need to pack. Then pack my suitcase too.
It’s crazy because I’m also working both my jobs before leaving! I don’t have much time for anything and I need to clean out the guinea pig cage before we leave.
I did start getting laundry together to start washing tonight so I can dry it and then start packing.
So stay tuned on the adven...
I’m listening to Motley Crue while I write this.
Got to see my big sister today which was nice and we went to lunch after church.
She lives 3 hours away from town and she drove up from Boston too.
Today the sun was not shining but it was nice out. I picked up a coworker and I went outside with a long T-shirt and shorts on.
It did rain a little bit and while we stopped at a gas station, there was a guy outside that really looked like he was on drugs.
No joke! He was very happy, talking to himself and dancing. Don’t know what he was up to but I was ready to lock my car doors because I was inside waiting.
I normally don’t see that but it happens in this town.
Need to go t...
Hello and Happy Sunday!
First: I did a 5k race yesterday and finished in 51:45! I’m very proud of myself for the time because normally I would hav taken longer.
It was 3.1 miles and it was decent weather for this race. It’s my first 5k of 2018 and my race bib will be hanging up.
Today was church day and I was happy to see everyone and to see Liz and her boyfriend Seth.
So I have signed up for 3 more races. One is a 10k in late May, one is a 5k in early May and I’m doing a race next month that is 4 miles.
I’m still deciding about a half marathon in September and that will get decided later.
Now it’s time to work, I hope you have a blessed Sunday and hope you enjoy the background.
Today I’m very tired, I also have a cold that is kicking my butt too.
I don’t want to work but if I call out I have to make up my shift and I don’t want to do that.
Maybe a nap before I go to work. Tomorrow is church and I don’t plan on staying for coffee hour because I’m sick.
I know the stamp doesn’t go with the paper but I live both so they are staying.
How is everyone? Good I hope. I’m doing good.
Today I paid off my glasses and they were ready so now I can see better. I’m nearsighted so I need them for distance.
I work in a few short hours, happy and sad but hey I’m earning money and that’s all that matters for now.
Just finishing Pirates if the Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales on Netflix.
So that sums up my day so far. Not much else is new. I have training tomorrow and physical therapy too so busy day tomorrow.
Going to watch something else for now til I have to leave for work.
I had a meeting today that was mandatory for one job. All was good at the meeting til we were able to eat.
I had anxiety and felt depressed and left out. I have no friends at this job and I really miss Connie.
I didn’t eat any of the food provided for the meeting and only texted my boss for my hours which are the same.
So I left and offered a ride to a coworker and then came home. Now I’m making pasta and need a nap.
I’m home from church and I got to light the chalice today. My last name was misspelled but it’s ok because I was happy to light the chalice.
Work the last few days has been stressful and I’m happy to have today off so I can relax.
I took on a new job opportunity and excited for it. Hoping to update here a lot more and just enjoying life.
Also trying to eat better too but it’s not easy. Doing pretty good so far.
Watching tv and going to relax.
To Whom It May Concern,
I have been away for awhile and now I’m back. A lot has happened while being away. Some good and some bad but I have made it through and taking one day at a time.
I work later today and wish I didn’t have too but I picked up the shift so I have to go in to work.
Winter sucks lately and just had a big storm come through and now we are getting very cold temps this weekend.
I started going to church (started October 29,2017) and tomorrow I get to light the chalice :)
I like the church I attend and everyone is very welcoming and very nice. It has made me feel like I belong and I’m happy that a friend suggested church to me in a time of need.
Now I tell ...
It has been a longtime since I have been on this app. A lot has happened in my life and some is good while the other is bad.
For now I’m doing good and trying to eat better and lose weight.
Things are good so far this year but it’s only the beginning so we will see what happens.
Last time I tried writing a letter it would not post :(
I have been working a lot and now taking time off before my other job starts.
I'm getting caught up on movies and tv shows.
Tomorrow is hair day and I will be coloring my hair which hasn't been done in over 10 years.
So not much is new with me, just relaxing.
Since my last letter I have been doing better. I have been getting more sleep and enjoying that. The sun is finally out and I'm happy it's a little warmer today.
Been working a lot and quitting one job because I work so much. Cutting back on jobs will be a good thing for me.
Well back to work.
I have been working a lot so I have neglected being on here. I miss doing these but I'm so tired from work that all I want to do is relax when I get home.
I am giving up one of my jobs and just have 2. 3 jobs is way to much for one person and it's time I gave my notice.
I hope everyone is doing well and having a good day so far, I'm doing taxes in a little bit.
Well I should go but will try to write in here more. Will see how that goes.
It has been awhile since I last wrote but things are better.
On Thursday my home health care client passed away on my shift and it was not easy.
Friday I had my tattoo appointment and that took 4 hours but it looks great. Have to go back for color in a month.
Today is beautiful out and the weather is so nice and glad we don't have snow.
Watching a movie and going to do some reading later.
Car has a crack in the windshield and that is getting fixed tomorrow.
I'm doing okay, just taking one day at a time.
I have been working non stop this week and have not had time to stop or be online. It sucks but it will be a good paycheck next week.
Hopefully I will be writing more in the coming days. It will be long and tough but I'm up for the challenge.
I hope all is well with everyone and that you are in good health.
Now it's time to relax and will write again tomorrow.
I have been ill the last 3 days but I'm doing much better. How are you doing?
Therapy is going well and I'm sad I missed the skylark challenge this past week but it's okay and I can join it this week.
I'm working on going to bed earlier so I can get more sleep. This letter will be short tonight but wanted to update.
Work was okay til about 3 hours into my shift, it went to hell! I wanted to cry and it's over something so stupid!!!
I don't understand why either but I stayed strong and made it through work.
Now it's time I say good night to all of you. Sweet dreams, stay brave and dream endless possibilities.
It feels like it has been awhile since I last wrote but things are looking up.
I started therapy yesterday and it is very benefitting for me plus it's time I start working on myself mentally.
I have many issues and therapy will help a lot so I'm glad I started.
In other news work kinda sucks but that happens so just going to stick with it.
How is everyone? I hope you are all well and doing good.
Well I need to go so I can change for work and clock in but I want you to have a great day 😊
