Back Home at Last

As many of you know, I attended the American Christian Fiction Writer's Conference in Minneapolis, Minn from 18-21 Sept. Fantastic experience. I want to go next year, too.

When that was over, I drove due north for about 6 hrs until I reached my mom's house in Thunder Bay, Ontario and visited with her for a week.

Yesterday am, I left Thunder Bay and drove all day and into the evening. By the time I stopped for the night in Brandon, Manitoba, it was 11:30 pm and I was only 3 hrs from home. I pulled into a rest area and slept for a couple hours. Then I was back on the road.

At 03:30, I was getting real tired again when the Lord provided me with another rest area. I pulled in, shut the van down and covered up again. I slept until 06:30.

by 0745, I was pulling into our yard, 1200 km/800 mls since leaving Thunder Bay. The boys were down at the barn but dropped their buckets and golf clubs (???) when they saw me. I had a chance for hugs and kisses with them and my daughter before the school bus came.

Now that I'm back online and have checked email, I'm getting tired again, so I'll hunker down and nap once more.

Well...until hubby gets my text that I'm back since I know he's bombing around in his truck around here somewhere...

I had such a fantastic time and met so many beautiful people on the inside as well as the outside.

Oh, but I'm thankful I'm home....
