OK – so I’m really tired today, but it is a good tired. Know what I mean?!

Yesterday, me, my siesta friend Sharron, and our 2 hubbies set out after Sunday School on a road trip. Sharron and I were so excited that we could hardly contain ourselves. Lots of “whoo hoo whoo hoo hoo’s” were shared each time we saw each other Sunday morning before we left.

So, I know you can’t wait to hear where our road trip took us. (Singing) . . . “On the road again, I just can’t wait to get on the road again! The life I love is making music with my friends, and I can’t wait to get on the road again!”

I had to take that little detour in song. You know me. I like me a good song to go with the situation.

Well . . . we were actually going to make music with our very special friend, Travis Cottrell, as he recorded a live CD/DVD at FBC Woodstock, Georgia. It was awesome! When we talked this morning, Sharron described it as a magical evening! And that it was! Travis, the praise team, the FBC Woodstock choir, Beth Moore – everyone was really pumped and the music and worship was incredible! The place was packed and Travis said he was afraid only a few people would come!!! Puleeassee!!!

We got to meet up with our Southern Siesta friends and visit with them a few minutes before the concert. Then, I had the privilege of meeting and getting my picture made with BooMama!!! How awesome is that?!

After the concert, we made the 3 ½ hour trip back home, arriving around 11:15 p.m. and guess what?! I couldn’t sleep. Not one teeny tiny itty bitty bit! I think the excitement was just spilling over, and no matter how hard I tried, sleep wouldn’t come. So I’m a little bit tired today. But it really is a good tired. AND I am facilitating a Bible study tonight! Lucky participants!!!!

So after Bible study, Gramster plans to go directly home, put on pj’s, then night night, sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite!
