Driving Miss Donna - what does this mean? Whenever I want to go somewhere, if Don is home he will usually drive. He always says he is driving miss Donna! This blog is for our travels, usually with our truck and fifth wheel trailer, but sometimes in our Journey. Don retired October 2011 so hopefully the travelling part will increase! When we are not vacationing check in for updates about our life at home and our wonderful family:)

Anticipation

I always get so restless on the last leg of the journey home. 
There's so much to look forward to, but also so much being left behind. It seems I fill the last few days of vacation anticipating what I wil do when home, whether that is family, social or work. But then I reflect on what is left behind; days with Don, just the two of us, a tiny uncluttered space to live in, and a weird type of solitude not found as easily once "home". 
Our last 2 nights on the road were spent kind of treating ourselves. Supper out, nice cold beers and in one case full services and a fireplace. The fireplace helps the weather transition just a bit, although the forecast at home is as warm as I like it. 
I'm glad we are going to be home in time to see all the kids before Monday and the school race. We've missed them like crazy, and if I could see them at least monthly while on the road, I would be happy to be gone for months. 
We have so much camping booked this summer I certainly won't miss he trailer at all. I'll tell you all about that through the spring and summer. Of course there's no need to remind you that updates won't be frequent!
Take care and thanks for joining us!
