First Big Trip in Four Years

I wanted to share some good news. I traveled for the first time in four years. We took a trip up north to Atlanta for a few days. There were a few milestones with this trip.Ā  The first was riding in the car for eight hours. I did just fine and I didn’t panic. I didn’t have any reckless driving trying to get to the bathroom somewhere. I also ate everything I wanted and I never had any issues. It was crazy!! I thought for sure I would have some rough times, but it never happened. Also at one time in the trip I went five hours without going to the bathroom. That has not happened in more than a year.

I had a great time with my family. For the first time in years my bathroom issues didn’t interrupt our time together. I felt ‘normal’ again.

Here are some pictures of family that we stayed with. Then we headed downtown to Atlanta to stay with our best friends Larry and Kathy. It was great spending time with them and their kids.

We have some great video too, but WordPress makes us pay now for video play, so they are on our Facebook account. Check them out they are really funny, especially Lori riding the scooter down the driveway. šŸ™‚
