We arrived home in Chicago Sunday around dinner time. Had a good trip and good weather all the way so were very happy. We did come thru Nashville after calling the motel on Fri. to confirm they were still open and apparently they were not in the area that was hit so hard. In fact our motel was filled with men and it dawned on me that they were working in Nashville on the cleanup. One fella at breakfast told me they were with the airconditioning company who were trying to dry out the Ryman Theatre (spelling?) and he said the organ was totally ruined and all the instruments in the lower level were all under water and mainly ruined also. What a shame.
Monday unloaded the van, Tuesday was a helping hostess at our Questers end of the year luncheon, Wed. my DD found out where Alice in Wonderland was still playing and went with me then we did some food shopping for me after. To-day I had a 1pm dentist check-up and went to JoAnns before. Got home about 3.00 after stopping at Jewel foods outdoor flower tent and picked up a few things for outside.
Now I have to ground myself and start actually unpacking all my cartons of stuff that I had shipped home. They actually arrived Monday and 2 are still in the hall and 2 more upstairs with the 5th. one the only one emptied. I did empty the suitcases and put the clothes away. I bought home my miniature violets and also 3 of the large ones and they arrived safe and sound. Will take a pic of them when things slow down.
