Willie Nelson - On the Road Again
Now I wouldn't say I am a Willie Nelson fan.... but for some reason as I was packing and loading our van yet again....this song popped into my head! LOL I always feel like we are on the road again! It's just the kind of song you have to smile when you listen to it. :-)
We have some plans tomorrow and Sunday we are celebrating Father's day with my dad and my sister and brother in law. So it will be nice to get everyone together.
I watched the movie Charlie St. Cloud last night. Not sure if you've seen it, but it was emotional to watch.
Jerry wasn't ready to see it because it dealt with a brother who's younger brother died. There was one line in the movie that just got to me and it's when Charlie talks to the "ghost" of his younger brother. He says "It hurts just as bad today (5 years later) as it did the day I lost you" his brother replies..."It only hurts because you're alive". I don't want to give too much of the movie away, but for anyone who's ever suffered a tragic loss....this is a good movie to see. This will be the first Father's day without Patrick and 4 young children will not have their Dad to celebrate with. I think this first year of holidays is going to be the hardest to get through so bear with me. I find the writing helps. :-)
Well I'm off to get the girls a good lunch together and finish last minute details before we leave. I will hopefully get to post some this weekend while we're away.

Have a wonderful day!!!
