Getting Excited and Nervous at the same time
I am headed to Pittsburgh on Friday. I am excited because I will be seeing my family. I am nervous because I am driving by myself for 12 hours. I plan to stop in West Virginia to get some rest. But I think I have been watching too much forensic files on TV. I keep thinking about how to keep my self safe when I stay in a hotel in WV by myself. I guess that is not a bad thing I would want to be safe but it is freaking me out a little. I should get there Saturday afternoon. Then I am told Sunday there will be rain, ice and snow....YIPPEE!! I have been missing the cold winter weather, actually it has been cold her it has been in the 40s in the day time. I know what you are thinking that is not cold but it is for us here in Charleston, SC! I plan on staying till Wednesday then I am going to head back home in hopes of making it the whole way in one day.....I will stop if I get too tired. I am going to see my grandmother as much as I can while I am up there. I usually go once or twice each day...Then I am also going to see my cousin who is my best friend and e will hang out some. Her birthday is Tuesday and I am looking forward to spending some time with her. We lost two years with each other because we let family drama come between us but we have moved past that and decided not to ever let that happen again. I am elated we are BFFs again. I missed her everyday for that two years. Silly thing is a TV show we used to watch together in the 80s was remade and we contacted each other about it and have been thick as thieves since. I could cry just thinking about the whole mess but it is over now and we have each other again forever. I will most likely see other family while I am there also. I always visit my brother because he is not allowed to keep in touch much. (very long story). I am always allowed to visit so I will see him and my nephew a few times. Hopefully I can see other family too. I'll keep you posted.
