on the road

My son, dog, and I have all decided to take a long weekend and go visit our husband/dad/companion (respectively) in Charm City ( the nickname Baltimore has given itself.) The weather isn't cooperating, and there is snow and sleet in the forecast, but we're loading up and heading out anyway.

The house presents a challenge for our dog SSD Wyatt (ret.) who is increasingly challenged by stairs. The house we are renting in the heart of CC, is a cute historic row house that is anything but accessible. Lots and lots of narrow stairs. We'll be looking for something a bit more suitable while we are there. This rental only lasts until early summer, so we need to find something anyway.

It's also a challenge for me--the Queen of the directionally challenged. Hopefully Tom, the new GPS, an get me there without too much angst. It will be an adventure, and fun to spend a bit of time with my son---a captive audience for a couple of hours.

It will be good to get away for a few days--although we have to be back on Sunday for the start of Lacrosse practice. Life goes on . . . .

I LOVE my GPS - it is a lifesaver to the "place-blind." Give my bes to your Charming hubby!
