I Can't Believe It's Over Already!

I  don't even know where to start!  We had such a wonderful time.  It was a fabulous group of ladies... the hotel was amazing... staff there was even better... the beds were heavenly... food was great... store was awesome... and I'm so tired, I could DROP!  Here we are last night after dinner... I'll post more pics later on.  Gotta get back to unpacking!  Thanks to ALL of you for a wonderful RETREAT!

It's Almost TIME! And I'm ALMOST Packed... are you?

Well... this is it!  Tonight is my last night to pack!  My group and I will be heading to Branson in the morning.  We plan to be there about 9:30 or so and start the unpacking and setting up.

I just wanted to wish you all luck with your final preparations and be sure to travel safely when you do get on the road!  If you need anything... like directions!!!  Don't hesitate to call me on my cell... 417-880-2426.

We will see you when you get there!

Ok... I really can't wait now!!!

So, come on!  Get some rest, then get your car loaded and be careful driving to Branson!

Happy traveling and see you when you get there!
    

Just Posting My To-Do List for Today.

I got up this morning after a very well rested night,  I must have needed that get-away yesterday to a Crop that I had nothing to do with, as far as planning!  Plus, I did some stretching exercises (thanks to my friend, BettyAnn) and I didn't have ONE leg or foot cramp to disturb my sleep!  So I woke up in a GREAT MOOD!  Ready to tackle the day!

And here's my TO-DO list for TODAY! (including some statuses)
  • WalMart run (last batch of stuff for the retreat) - DONE... did that at 9am)
  • Get Nails done - putting that one off til Tuesday, when I'm off for the afternoon
