No I wasn’t worried about getting lost, and it was about a 7 hour ride from New Jersey to Ohio. I could go off here in many different directions but I will mention a few things and you can let me know if you want more details.
|Yes on the road|
great weather and good times.
Another thing I noticed which still always amazes me is that as soon as we left New Jersey, the people we met, whether it was at a Starbucks or a restaurant were just plain friendly and more pleasant. I can say that with only one exception, and that was at a Taco Bell we stopped at for dinner were the woman who waited on us was just rude.
We finally met up with Paige and her mom which was a delightful experience. I had never met her mom, since Tom had always done the drive to go meet them. There are some people that are very pleasant and I had always been impressed with her through my experience with Paige, so to finally meet her was a real treat, and she was all that I expected in a good way. There are some mothers that are quite simply really great ones. She is one of them.
With Paige now added to the mix, it was real girl time. Once we had checked into the hotel, and gone for a swim and jacuzzi which relaxed us all we were ready to go out. This of course included a trip to the Mall where we walked around looking at cloths and purchased several pairs of shoes. Before grabbing a bite to eat and heading back to the hotel where we all fell exhausted into bed after much talking, laughing and horsing around.

So now I sit here in front of my computer, what is my thought for the day? My house is full we are all safely home, and I couldn’t feel more blessed if I tried. Paige adds a dynamic to our household that mixes right in without any odd uncomfortable pauses. It is as if she never left, and I really love that she feels that comfortable here, that this is her home away from home. Balance that is the key and what pulls things together in life.It is one of those things you didn’t know you where missing until you find it.
