Thanks! Suzi, we are going to Ottumwa. That is where James was born and raised.
One of the bad things about being sick in bed so long is that my muscles started to atrophy. Packing and lugging stuff to the car (of course James did a lot too) really did a number on my back. I was SO sore when I woke up this morning. James went down to breakfast (they have a GREAT breakfast here--we stayed here when we bought the car and part of the reason we came back was the breakfast), and he brought some back for me. I am working on my Belgian waffle and fluffy scrambled eggs as I type.
We won't be getting off on our trip too early today, but that's okay. James is lying down again, and we both still need to shower. Hopefully the car won't take too long, but I know it will be a while.
Have a great day everyone!
