Alison's word to describe our day was, "happy." : ) We had a really good trip to see her side of the family and friends down in Buffalo, MO. She handled the ride like a champ, and really enjoyed seeing everyone - as they did likewise. A funny story from the day was on our way there this morning. Before we left, I told her I would occasionally ask her how she was doing, and if, for any reason she needed me to pull over for something, I'd be glad to. So we were about an hour outside of Buffalo, and I reached over to grab her hand and asked if she was doing okay. No thumb raise. I asked if I needed to pull over. Thumb up. So I pulled over on the side of the highway and we started spelling so she could tell me what was wrong. S-T-O-P B-I-T - at that point I knew I'd been busted. She was telling me to stop biting my nails. It's long been a bad habit of mine - especially while driving, that she's always got on to me for. Some things never change. : ) I called her a twerp and we kept going - and I stopped biting my nails. By the time we headed home, she was pretty tired and slept a lot of the way. And she was definitely ready to lay down when we got back. It wasn't long before she fell asleep. Piper and I aren't far behind her. But it's been a really good day. Thanks for your continued support.
