Our biggest challenge this past time was packing a grill to bring back. We came back just after hurricane Dean came through so we didn't know if we would have power when we arrived. Thank God we did but we were ready just in case. Todd found us a grill at Walmart (my all time favorite store) that had a side burner on it. Of course he couldn't find one in a box unassembled. All they had were assembled ones and the boxes had already been discarded. But that wasn't a problem because Todd and his dad took it apart and we packed the biggest pieces in a box we paid $6.99 for and I distributed the other pieces throughout the twelve suitcases.
Nathan actually took time out from playing his Nintendo to help his daddy put in a few screws and now we are able to enjoy grilled food. I was getting real tired of FRYING porkchops. I never got tired of eating them but they weren't worth the heatstroke I had to go through to get them.
Mama and Daddy are coming in exactly 16 days and we are starting to get excited about having our first visitors...not to mention helping them unpack. A few weeks ago it dawned on us all that they didn't have any suitcases to use when they come because we had them all with us. So, we had to figure a way to get some suitcases back home. It just so happened that we had a construction team here from Bonifay, Florida that said they would be more than happy to take them for us and UPS them to Mama and Daddy. Upon further review of the situation, the leader of the group said he would drive them to my Aunt Sharon and Uncle Layne's house in Tallahassee, Florida and they would take them to Mama and Daddy tomorrow to the Hinson family reunion. So, now Mama and Daddy will get the suitcases they need thanks to Pastor Jerry Moore from Bonifay and Aunt Sharon and Uncle Layne from Tallahassee.
Happy packing Mama!!!!!! Bubby and I can't wait to unpack them for you!!!!!!!
