We were supposed to be headed for Oregon this week to attend Black Sheep Gathering in Eugene. But, with gas prices high and the nagging feelings I had about leaving our wonderful petsitter with way too many animals, both sheep and cats, plus my needing a dental crown next month to the tune of $850.00/copay, we started thinking about cancelling the trip.
There is another reason we've been wanting to save our traveling money. We HAVE to be in New Zealand in December this year!!! "HAVE to be???", my dear friend Tina asked me. Why, yes...HAVE to be. And the reason for having to be in New Zealand is a really good one. We've known about it for about two months but I haven't been allowed to say anything until now...
You see, in December, our daughter, Kelly is expecting her first baby! :) It hasn't sunken in yet, but I shall be a grandmother! Last night we were informaed that she is now 12 weeks along and has told her coworkers so it was OK to write about it in my blog. Thanks, DD...I thought I was going to burst if I had to hold it in much longer! :)
Hmm...I wonder if Shepherd's crooks come in child size?
