Call me CRAZY…

Haha  !!!   I can GUARANTEE you, one thing I have never been referred to is the word “Crazy”.  (in the free spirited FUN way atleast)   other descriptions of the word?  possibly, but that can be saved to a future update!  :O

I believe it has been 5 years.  Yes, FIVE YEARS since I have really had a vacation.  Pathetic, I know.  Many reasons factor into this, but it is about to change.

I am taking a whirlwind mini / sort of / vacation / road trip.   Yeah, road trip, that is a better word.  A “sisters” road trip.

Heading to my niece Rhiannons home in Cincinnati Ohio  (actually Covington KY) if you want particulars.  The Ohio river divides the two.

I think we will spend the majority of the time on Hwy 127

Are you ready to hear the adventure?????

The WORLDS LARGEST YARD SALE !!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh .  My  . GOODNESS  .

I’m  not sure what I am getting myself into.  Truth be known, I am really only tagging along to see my niece and her new home.  (my daughter is actually there now, so she gets to join the fun!!)

My sisters are the Yard Sale freaks!!!  usually they just go scout out the things FOR me, but this time I am playing right along with them.

They tell me, this “sale” spans across 20 3 or 4 states, and I believe it begins in Covington (?)    I think we are traveling it as far as our energy will let us.

Can you seriously imagine the AWESOME finds I may come home with????   I can dig deep if I have to!!!  and turn it into something completely UNexpected!!!!

We are taking a LARGE ,oversized, gas guzzling, 4 wheel drive, dualey (sp), diesel pickup, and my most BLONDE sister is the one voted to drive us there.  Again, OH MY GOODNESS !!!!!   If you know Kris, you will understand my concern.

We leave on Thursday morning  (6 am)  a time of day I really have no desire to see, but I am WAY outvoted this time.  (this is about a 9 hour drive)

We arrive back home on Sunday.   yep, a little too swift of a “vacation”  but who am I to complain?  Remember, it has been FIVE years!!!  We also plan a trip to IKEA (which I have also never been to)  and lots of eating, and visiting and etc etc…..I am thinking we may have to do without sleep entirely.  There will just not be enough time for THAT!!!  (hmmm that could also make the trip HOME, pickup overloaded, very interesting, again, with Kris behind the wheel!!!!!)  yikes.

Seems only appropriate, remember, I cashed in this years pocket change to go?

All the while, Glenn will be home (with Maison) power washing the house with that silly power washer he bought with his portion.  🙂

I am DEFINITELY getting the better end of the deal huh?

We are guaranteed a GREAT time.

I simply can NOT wait to tell you all about it next week.

    Oh my father-in-law is a Saint, to give 4 wild sisters his nice LARGE truck!!!! I hope it comes back in one piece! I am thinking Madison will have to be tied to the top on the way home, since you will probably fill the truck!!!!! Have lots of fun!
