November 5th - North Carolina Day 6

Gratitude Journal:  I am thankful for cars that go so fast and work so well, so we can take short vacations and seem like we have been a long ways away.  We have been only a little over 2 hours away, but it has seemed like a totally different time and place.  How great is that!

This was our last day - how could it go by so fast? 

Late yesterday, we discovered a serious leak in the basement bathroom, so this morning Bill spent quite a bit of time getting that cleaned up.  It turns out there is a plumbing problem and the washing machine is not draining properly.  Instead it is coming up in the bathroom - thus the big mess!  He got it all cleaned up, though, and will the owners know what happened.

While he was doing that, I got everything packed and ready to load.  Then we ate whatever we could find for lunch.  We have done pretty well on food this time.  The worst thing we had to throw away was some ice cream that didn't get eaten.  Everything else that was left, we were able to bring back.

We then sat around doing our relaxation thing again for the rest of the afternoon.  Neither one of us was ready to go home, but we finally had to face it.  We got loaded up and on our way around 4:30 and were back home by 7:00.

How is it that a week can go by so quickly?  I think I will demand a recount!!!  It was a wonderful few days and we are already looking forward to the next time we can go.
