go visit my sister (finally)...I haven't been able to see her for over 3 yrs, due to sick and dying ferrets. (cross yer fingers everyone) I get to fly to OR and escape the heat here...(for a few days). I'll be arriving on her birthday Sept. 27th and comming home on Oct. 2nd. ( I don't like to wear out my welcome.)
I REALLY NEED to get away from HERE....
It's not that I don't love my ferrets, my home and everything...but we all need a break once-in-awhile.....besides which I get to see my sisters first 'home'...she bought a condo this yr...and I love OR...the way it smells (like pine trees), the way it feels, (like theres all the time in the world), and everyone is nice...
Besides which I love my sister to death...I wish we lived closer so I could see her more....she was my baby when she was born and has always been 'mine'.

Yay me !!!!!!!!!!!! :love:

That's great! I hope you have a safe and happy visit with your sister. Tell her "hi!" from all of us!

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and good with ketchup!

Lucky you with a nice vacation to look forward to! I just got back from CO so can relate with the smells/feelings. I agree, even a few days away from home can be very restful and it helps you get to see your sister too! I'm happy for you......have a great time!

Chrys...enjoy your mental health break.....and your visit with your sister. I think we all need to do this from time to time. It really does help, as long as the trip & visit isn't stressful. Enjoy every minute of time with your sister! :love:

So little time, sew much to do...........
