FROM KANSAS CITY

Here I am in the motel lobby blogging AGAIN. All the rest of mine, hubby and grands are still fast asleep. It is 6:30 a.m. I seem to need to take more care in making myself clear. Even though our son loaned us a laptop to take to Nova Scotia (cancelled trip) I choose deliberately NOT to bring it so I'd give all my attention to the grands and not be tempted to be on the computer. BUT this motel has a computer in the lobby and as you can see......I have to drop by and read my comments and post a tiny note.

We walked I don't know how many miles over and over Worlds of Fun yesterday. I only rode two rides. Grandpa is a much better sport than I and road a lot with the kids. We were there from 10 a.m. when they opened until 4:15. Believe me, lights were out last night at 10 and we SLEEP. Belessed sleep.

I just read on the comments that I won Amber's contest. Boy, the Lord is really blessing me "coming in and going out". Thanks Amber.

Today it's Oceans of Fun which is a water park and water rides. We are not going until 11 today and we'll stay until the kids sa "uncle"!!!!

No time to read any blogs and I miss you all but just had to report in and say "hi". Sooo sorry to hear about your beautiful garden, Barbara :o(

How was the birthday Leigh Ann? I'll be eager to read all about it.

Well, off this thing and back to my duties as "Grandma-ma"!!!

Oh Susan, it just does my heart good to know that you just can't stay away. Last year when we went to Dallas I hauled my lap top along. I blogged every day telling myself that my friends wanted to know every detail about my vacation. Deep down I didn't want to miss my friends :)

I have not yet decided if I can endure an entire week without you all when we go to Dallas in August. I do not know how to use Lindsey's Mac lap top, so I will have to make a decision soon as to whether or not to bring mine.

Love to you and the fam. I wish I was with you to just sit and talk while the kids are having some fun. I'm afraid it would take forever for us to get talked out :)

Ginger without her computer for a week? She couldn't do it - goodness, she left me 5 comments in one day!

So happy to hear things are going well and how wonderul that the lobby has a computer!

I had a terrific birthday - T ended up having to 'truck' last night, but it was a fun day - the kids sang to me all day long! Even this morning, Quintin sang again!

Enjoy the time because I'm sure it is passing quickly.

I was just teasing a friend about her need to visit IJA, Internet Junkies Anonymous. Should I send you a copy of the meeting schedule??? :-) Have a great trip! It was wonderful to learn all about Suzy Blue. Why did you keep her so short a time??

Sounds like you are having a wonderful time and making lots of great memories.

Have a great day.

I think you are officially addicted to blogging if you noticed the hotel had a computer! It's funny, I bet a few years ago they had them too, we just didn't pay that much attention to it.

Glad you are enjoying your vacation and the grandkids.

CONNIE'S THOUGHTS FROM THE HEART said...

I know you are having such a great time but I also know you are probably ready for bed at bedtime. I always am after a very full day with my grandchildren. So much fun though. Have a wonderful time, I am glad we heard from you. connie from Texas
