Gone South

My Dad picked me up at 1 am this morning to drive down to North Carolina to visit my Grandparents. I tried to sleep in the car but it's never quite restful. But we got here a little after 1 pm this afternoon. I love coming south because it's actually warm here and I am wearing flip flops for the first time this season. And I also love stopping at the Cracker Barrel to eat and look around the gift shop. We don't have many near us so I like to stop there while traveling. I love spending time with my grandparents. Grandma just got out of the hospital (actually, Grandpa too) so it'll be nice to hang out with them and help them out with stuff around the house. And since I'm not at work, I can multitask and watch A LOT of basketball while I hang out here. I adore March Madness. I have filled out two brackets for the office pool (that was my last official thing I did before I left work yesterday)
This is Maggie, my Grandparents dog. She is so cute!
This is the scene after dinner tonight. My dad, aunt and grandma and I had our laptops out while we watched basketball. We are a family of nerds. But I love it!
I'm off to bed to finally catch up on some sleep. Hope you are having a great Thursday and that your bracket is still going strong!

I love Cracker Barrel, too! Shopping and eating under one roof, what's not to love? Have fun with your grandparents.

I love how everyone has their own computer now. Remember when it was a big deal that a household had one computer? Oh, and I love the Otto on your blog now!

I can browse in the Cracker Barrel shop for hours!

I love Cracker Barrel! There is one not far from us and I don't get to go nearly as much as I would like. I hope you enjoy the rest of your trip.
