Butterfly Kisses & Bedtime Prayers

"Butterfly Kisses after bedtime prayer. Stickn' little white flowers all up in her hair. Oh with all that I've done wrong, I must have done something right.

With 2,182 miles behind us we are almost to Florida. YIPPEE!! Two days of straight driving has left us all a little stiff but later today we should finally cross into Florida by way of Route 10. We will still have one more day until we get to central Florida but hey I'll take FLORIDA WELCOMES YOU by way of any town by now.

Carylanne's numbers have been really good since we realized that her basals needed a boost. One day of bad numbers had us scratching our heads. Then a change of sites and figuring that the inactivity of the car ride was also to blame and we were back in the 100's again. No lows. no highs AKA a perfect numbers day! I love those. Nothing under 100 nothing over 160. Can't ask for better. Now if we could just win the battle of the dry skin and chaffing!!

Some things we had totaly forgotten about in Hawaii. Dry Skin.... Haven't had that in 3 years. My girls are chaffing and Christianne's hands are red. I need stock in Lubriderm!
Static electricity. Doesn't exist on Oahu so we had forgotten about it. The girls are not enjoying it. NOt eventhe fact that they can zap each other at the drop of a hat. Hey I loved that when I was a kid.

We nearly saw snow yesterday but decided it was too soon for that a detoured around it by way of dropping south into Dallas and Louisiana. Now today we will drive south east and enjoy the scenery. Maybe some good southern cooking and just be excited about the destination. (a thing lost in the last couple days with so much driving and boredom!)Hope you all have a good weekend!!!!

    Not much dry or static electricity in central Florida - you'll feel right at home with the humidity. Hope you're here by now. WELCOME TO FLORIDA! :-)

    We have humidifiers in every room. But, like Ellen said, you won't need it in Florida.

    May you arrive at your destination swiftly!

    I look forward to reading about your arrival.
