Arrived in Tennessee

Ironic is what you can call the title beside the category of this post. We touched down in Knoxville about 8:30 pm picked up a rental car and made it to Johnson City around 11 pm. The hotel was a surprise because the doors are on the outside. That is not something we see very much in large hotels in either South or North Dakota. Well not much else to mention. The flights were good, the layover was ok, and the car was fine. The worst was trying to check in and the lobby was locked. We all so do  not get the side by side rooms we were promised. Then when we opened our suitcase we found an inspection notice and the worst was that neither of us put the toothpaste in.  I also knew ahead of time that I had forgotten my hairbrush. Long day, but wouldn’t change it, and through the whole thing I remembered to live in the moment. More later!

Today we are leaving on the trip to Tenn. to watch Paulina participate in the NAIA National Indoor Championships for Track and Field. She always says it should be Field and Track. HA! This will be our first trip on a plane since we went to D.C. back in, well I can’t remember. It was to visit Jessica who was an intern for Senator Conrad of ND. Bush Jr. was in the White House, which we didn’t get to tour or even drive by. Means we need to go back, maybe when Oprah is there. Ha!!

Today James is about going out of his mind because we had a bit of snow over night. Pictures to the side. Roger was not too pleased when we were packing. She kept putting a toy into the carry on and this morning she laid on the big suitcase. I think she would sneak along if she could. They have both been so needy since we returned from the wedding, this trip will likely send them for a spiral. I am just so relieved we are at home the following week without even a day trip. Hurrah. Wait, we will have to go to a grocery store someplace, we don’t even have bread in the house, but that is ok, nothing will spoil while we are gone. So, I have my iPad with and hopefully can drop a post in before we return. Happy March to you all.
