Hi to all of you From cloudy Chattanooga, TN

  Well, for my birthday my hubby gave me a two week visit to my daughter and new grandson. Now, initially I was very excited to make this trip, then as the time got short for my departure I began to wish I wasn't going. That was just plain crazy in my opinion and I couldn't figure out why I felt that way. So on the date I was scheduled to leave I packed my daughters car with my luggage and we headed off to the air port. I just was not looking forward to the trip. They dropped me off at the door and I headed in to get my boarding pass and check my bag. I got in line and waited, then I heard one of the people in front of me say something about a cancelled flight. I didn't see the schedule sign behind me so I didn't know what they meant. I waited a few more min. and they were getting serious about the cancelled flight now and talking louder. I asked what they meant, and sure enough it was the same flight I was to be on to DFW that was cancelled. So I just stayed in line and waited to talk to the people at the desk. Turns out there was bad weather in Dallas and they were cancelling flights for the rest of the afternoon going in to DFW airport. That is where I was to meet another plan to Chattanooga. So What to do??? They offered me a flight the next afternoon that went through Chicago instead of Dallas, and I didn't want to miss a day and half with my family here, but took that flight. Just seconds after the arrangements were completed I could not wait to get here, all my apprehension was gone and I wanted to travel. But then I had to wait. Called hubby and daughter and they had not even gotten home yet so they turned around and came to get me. I guess I was aware of the bad weather and just didn't realize it, because I sure got excited about my trip as soon as I got the new flight plan.
  I am having a wonderful time, I have gotten to keep my grandson every day while his mommy either went to work or was off with his daddy meeting some of his co-workers in Atlanta. We spent 2 days and 1 night there, and I had a great time even though one day was just in the hotel with my grandson. The next day they took me to World of Coke, and if you get the chance to go there I recommend it. We had a good time and got to try different soda's that the Coca Cola Co. make all over the world. I gotta tell you there are a few from Europe, and Africa, and South America that I wish they made here. Honestly I don't drink much coke(soda), these days as I think it is hard on the system and sure has a lot of empty calories, but there are about 4 different ones from those places I could have once in a while if they were made here. Guess I will stick to my infrequent coke instead.
  Needless to say I have not had a chance to sew at all since I got here. I did get some of my pay it forward things made before I left home last week, and will try to get them in the mail when I get home. That will not be until the 29th so I won't be posting anything until May I am sure. You know how that goes, when you get home, you gotta do laundry and get back in the swing of life. Hubby will be joining me for a few days on Sun. then on Wed. he will fly on to PA and spend a few days with his dad, and sister and her family. Then we get home on the same day. I kind of goofed on that one, he gets in at @ 9 am, I don't get in until about 6 pm the same day. That means the girls will have to make 2 trips to the airport that day. I didn't mean to cause my family more work, it just didn't enter my mind that it was going to be on the same day and I needed to try and get the flights in at the same time or close to the same time. Silly me!!! Well, I have lots of pictures, but haven't gotten them on the computer yet so maybe tomorrow or next week. Until I have time to write again yall have a very quilty week and I will check back soon.
