« on: September 26, 2010, 07:43:33 PM »

I'm getting ready for a week-long trip (driving alone) to visit my mom in Arizona.

(Yes, that's right - it's way too hot out here in California, so I'm going to spend a week in Phoenix.  Grin )

Anyway, I've decided to make it kind of a "mini retreat" and stay off the Internet (as much as possible) while I'm in transit.  Some of the polemics here have been getting to me, so it's time for a break!

Please pray for me, that I'll have a safe journey to and from my mom's house, and a pleasant visit with her.

Thanks, and see you in a week!  Smiley

Gamliel, yes, St. Anthony's ... unfortunately I won't be able to get there on this trip but maybe at Thanksgiving when my husband can be with me ... Smiley

Thanks everyone - I'm back safely!  The visit with Mom, however, did NOT go so well - next time I will make sure to have my husband with me as my "buffer zone"! Cheesy
