We left Detroit at 4:45 am this morning. We have been at a standstill several times. At least 3 hours in Cincinnati and now over an hour in Louisville. A nine hour drive looks like it will turn into a 14 hour drive. Everything will be closed when we get home. We have no food in the house.
I told Janet we will have to eat supper and christmas breakfast at waffle house, the only thing open.
Janet had a first cousin who died yesterday, the second first cousin of hers in two weeks to die. Janet's 88 yr old father had a bad fall night before last. And her brother eric had a bad car wreck yesterday and ended up in the hospital.
It is going to be a meager christmas. It doesn't look like we will be able to get with family this christmas, something we have always enjoyed doing.And we are going to miss going to a Christmas service tonight because it will be so late when we get home.
Enclosed is a picture of a barren tree I saw at a rest stop in kentucky today. It pretty much describes how I feel this christmas eve.
