As it stands right now it looks like my in-laws will dodge the bullet this time. I sure hope so!
I also have several friends still in the NOLA area or from there so I am thinking of them, too.
I am glad we got him a new truck because I am always the one getting the new vehicle so he was due. Course now I want a new one but that will not be in the cards for a while yet :) I don't know if he feels guilty (he shouldn't) or if he is ashamed of my car but he spent Saturday afternoon washing the Expedition and vacuuming it and even conditioned the leather seats! It looks great!

We have more driving to do as this is only leg one of the trip. Saturday we will drive 1.5 hours to visit my grandparent-in-laws for the day (we are with my in-laws right now) and then another 2 hours that evening to see my parents and brother and his family for one day in Florida then turn around with them and drive 4 hours back to Louisiana for a few days and then 1.5 hours back to the in-laws and then another ten back home.
I am unsure why I decided to do this! :) No, Double A will be starting school soon (real school, Kindergarten) and we will be traveling less since she will actually have to attend school with regularity. I thought we would take the time to see the relatives in driving distance. We will miss Husband #1, though. he is home working hard every day so I can spend what he makes on gas for this trip! So far the kids are having fun with their grandparents and I will get to see some friends from high school and college that I have not seen in quite a while.
We'll see how the postig goes while on this trip. I willl likely take some pics so we will see if I get them posted. Gee, maybe I can do that while I am driving!

So many big changes for our little girl. Starting real school with full days every day. Turning 6 seems to be a big milestone and one she seems to recognize without us telling her. She announced a few weeks ago that when she is 6 she can do whatever she wants. Then she started crying when her dad and I laughed at her and told this was definitely NOT the case. School starts for us after Labor Day so we still have time before she is officially a "Big Girl." We'll see who cries on the first day!

The large white square with the small rectangle above it is our new cabinet and drawer. Towels, TP and other storage!! Just above that is our new air vent for heating and cooling in the bathroom. The other vent is an intake vent and the small white panel is an access panel for the water shut off.
New light fixture and medicine cabinet. The cabinet is all mirrored on the inside so when you open it you are practically blinded when the light reflects.
New faucet and vanity. The wood is dark brown "espresso" and not black as it seems. I even got new towels which are super soft! I did refrain from purchasing the $70 towel. Not sure how they were so different that they needed to be so expensive!
Love the new shower head. It is also nice to be able to stand in the middle of the shower instead of before when you had to be smashed up against the door because the shower head would not move anywhere else. They handle is cool, too. You turn the water pressure with the big knob and then the temp with the small handle on top of the big one (can't really see from this pic).
Come shower in our new bathroom if you want!! We have actually already had house guests...the first day it was operational. they don't know how lucky they were...they never saw the old bathroom :)
Well, enough for now. I just got back last night from a Creative Memories convention and am still wiped out and trying to get life back on track. Pics of that later!
