 SNOW SNOW SNOW.

We were actually caught in a snowstorm earlier this afternoon just up around Pink Beds on the Parkway.

And it's been snowing outside the hotel all night. I've been downstairs in it three times already.

Did I mention that the foliage is still gorgeous up here... [my laptop keyboard only half-works; note the lack of exclamation and question mark]

Seriously. We can't really get too far on the Parkways, but we still have one more day here and then another in Gatlinburg.

This truly is heaven, Ridge-riding or not.

This is yet another of those week's leading up to a vacation that's draaaaaaaaaaaaaaagging. I think part of it was this with Vix last week [still hurts; we got her ashes back yesterday in a beautiful wooden box. God bless our vet] and the fact that we have an Operations walk this week. There's been no time to slow down and relax at all. Only getting about three or four hours of sleep a night.

O. M. GEE!

I promised you guys some really awesome pics of my beloved mountains, right? I started uploading what we shot while we were up there and I'm thinking that you guys won't get to see more than the very best ones. Since there's 226 of them! XD *dies*

I knew we took a lot, but HOLY GOD!

Well, we've made it up here in one piece, despite the tons of road improvement and having to take a totally different route to get here to Asheville. Left kinda late for us, around 3:30, but made good time. Since we only got about three hours' sleep last night, we got here to the hotel around 1 and crashed. We have plans to go see Legend of the Guardians around 9:50 tonight, then maybe a drive. And the leaves are just BEAUTUFUL! We got here just at the very time to could have hoped. 

I'm so damn HAPPY, you guys, and it's been a little bit since I was purely and truly that. I totally wish that we could have you all here with us. That's the only thing that could top it. :D

Expect to hear from us on and off throughout the trip, but I'm not sure when I'm going to post next. However, I do know that I'll be posting on Saturday, if no other day.

I LOVE YOU ALL! Try to have a good week as much as you can and I'll send some of my own happy your way!

I haven't really done a countdown for this one before I was too afraid that I'd have a nervous breakdown while waited. That said, we're disappearing into the wilds of North Carolina for five days starting at 27th. I have been waiting for this since July with such baited breath. It'll feel so good to be back there. I can't wait for the day that we can finally stay forever.

Two weeks and two days. I just have to make it two more weeks and two more days. And I'm happier than ever that I booked those extra two days.

Considering downloading the Keaton Batman for inclusion in a video to All The Right Moves. He's always been my Batman, but I let myself get talked out of using him for So Close. Might be worth my while to make this one. Would be set after SII. We'll see how it goes.

Also, obviously have the 'net back. It was a glitch. Clearwire helped Anissa fix it and it was something pretty mild. Thank God. *heaves sigh of relief* I HATE going without the 'net when I have work to do!

All kind of family drama this week and I realized yet again just how much I love the majority of my family and just how willing to fight for them I am. One individual has pretty much blown her chances with me, but she's making everyone else so miserable that we're blocking her out for now. Everyone please pray that she gets her head out of her ass some day soon and that it happens before she wrecks her life. *glares in T's direction*

I also feel awful going on a trip to the mountains when everyone is having such a hard times, but I haven't had a real break since October, that trip just made the stress worse, and it's Anissa's birthday present. I think I'm just going to not bring it up until we leave. No one's begrudging us it; it's just that I see how badly Mom, Dad, and April need a break. I SO wish I was making better money. I want to take care of them so much better than I currently can. It just kills me to see them struggle.

Buuuuuut, in lighter news, how's about this?

Twenty days to go. :D A little more than two weeks. I can make it. I can! )

The weather was pretty bad on Monday, which was my day in Asheville, so here's Tuesday and Anissa's day out. I think I may have a few photos on my camera of Asheville, so stay tuned.
