We hit the floor running early this morning. Up at 5:45am in order to get Jane packed up and us ready to head into St. Louis to meet Su for breakfast at Cracker Barrel at 8am. As we were seated and getting ready to order, the Swalinas (Su’s sister Barbie and her hubby John) and another couple and their daughter happened in for breakfast as well. They sat at a table across the aisle and Barbie spent most of her time blowing the paper from straws at our table. I should mention she’s an elementary school teacher. Wonder where she got the straw blowing idea. :) Su treated us all to breakfast. And a delicious breakfast it was. I had my favorite of Grandma’s platter with pecans in my pancakes. Yep, calorie overload again. LOL.
Left Cracker Barrel and headed to Harrahs for Jane to get her ‘last chance’ gamble fix. We only had about an hour to play so every second counted. Didn’t break the bank but made some more good memories just being together. We even had an after breakfast beer.
Got Jane to the airport at 11:15am so she could make her 12:30pm flight. The flight was delayed until 2pm. Good thing she had her Kindle with the audio download of “The Help”. Something to keep her entertained.
I miss my BFF already. But it won’t be long until we get together again. We’re wanting to plan an all-inclusive trip to some island (not Mexico) in the near future. How fun it would be to have everything taking care of once you get there. All you have to do is enjoy.
