Blessings today include: time at Molly's house with the gang; trip planning
|When Emmatha naps, everybody naps!|
|And when Emmatha is awake, Maggie Cat gets a massage!|
|The work table. There's a lot going on here! Including Rotel dip!|
|Maribeth's BuJo work in progress. Apparently BuJo-ing is a lot of fun.|
|Even Lindley and Everley got their own supplies for their own BuJo.|
Lindley is drawing a cruise ship.
Maybe I can get into BuJo-ing if cruises are involved!
|This was in Atlanta, October 2001. My friend Emily said she would do it with me.|
Instead of walking, she worked on the medical staff (she's a nurse), popping blisters
and other medical stuff. We shared a tent, even the night that it poured rain.
We didn't see each other much, but I was so thankful to have someone there with me!
|This was in the Twin Cities, August 2007. I wanted to do something special for my 50th birthday.|
Lynnette said she wanted to do one, and did it with me.
This was at the finish. We were very happy to be there!!
|This was in San Diego, November 2009. Marilyn wanted to do one, so I said I would do it with her.|
It was a beautiful course, and a real experience for Marilyn to spend two nights in Tent City.
She didn't sleep so well, but of course, I slept like a baby!!
|This was in San Francisco, September 2012. Molly, KB, and Sharon said they wanted to do a 3-Day.|
Karen and Jo (not the bra girls above) also joined our team, but they walked way faster than we did.
We had a great time in our little tents, and four of us decided to do it again!
Of course, that could have been the post-walk wine talking ...
|And so here we are in Washington, DC, October 2013. Because she was now a breast cancer survivor,|
Marilyn wanted to do one more. And Sharon's husband Bruce came along, too!
We like to call this photo, "Bruce and His Sista Wives."
This was in our hotel lobby, because by this time we all were very smart -
and decided hotel sleeping was much better than tent sleeping!
|And then finally, we finished our walks in Philadelphia, November 2014.|
While we again hotel-ed it, this one almost did us in.
Each of us had our down moments, and rode the sweep shuttle.
But we had a great time - and swore we'd never do another!!

|Somebody always has to see what the big sister is up to.|
Because she's always up to something!!
|PawPaw hadn't had his morning shower yet.|
But these two don't care!!
|Moo got to visit the girls' classrooms.|
Clearly Emmatha isn't too impressed.
Or she is trying to see what the big sister is up to - again!!
|Maggie - different day.|
Same cat. Same Bumbo.
|Everley in the bumbo.|
Maybe making up for
time she missed as a baby?
|Dr. Joe Gannon -|
McDreamy back in
my day ...
|Maggie Cat was a fan.|
|She was also a fan back in 2010 in Lindley's Bumbo.|
|Emmatha? Not so much a fan. She kept trying to figure a way out.|
So do we keep the Bumbo for the cat???
But you get the drift
of how I was feeling.
|Ice, ice baby ...|
|Finished the race - and got our metal medals!!|
|Met up with this dude somewhere ...|
|Had to get a photo with Belle for my friend Elizabeth's birthday (Eliz is secretly Belle).|
|The question is - am I pushing Molly or is she pulling me?|
|My castle - which you really need to see in person ...|
