Mississippi or Bust

It looks as if I will be taking a little trip on July 4 through July 7. I have mentioned that Jeff ditched treatment for work and the work is in Ocean Springs, Ms. That is like a little town before you get to Biloxi,Ms. It is on the bay and there is a beach.

I have known about this ever since Jeff left. He went down to work with his Mom's ex-boyfriend. I am taking Jeff's youngest daughter Heather who is 7 and his mother. I have some real mixed feelings about the whole thing. This trip could either be really nice and relaxing or it could be a disaster.

Number one I dont like traveling 300 miles by myself. Oh I know, I mentioned Heather and Gloria going. Without saying much more, I will basically be the one responsible and in charge and that makes me nervous.

Number two--Jeff is supposed to pay the gas and the boarding of my dog. That will be about $160.00. I dont have that kind of money and I wouldnt be going unless he was going to pay . I wanted him to send me the money prior to going but he insists he will give it to me when I get there. I have a big trust issue with this one. Now Johnny says whatever Jeff doesnt pay he will. I believe him more than I believe Jeff.

There are positives to me going. I havent been to the beach in a long time. Given that the Mississippi bay is not nearly as pretty as the Florida beaches, I still want to go. The 4th of July they are having a festival with live bands, music, food and fireworks. That will be on the beach and that sounds like a lot of fun. I have been told we are going to that and I most likely will go even if no one else does. I have no problem hanging out by myself on the beach watching fireworks. No telling what I could get myself into.

I need to get away also. It will help me stop being a recluse even if it is only for a few days. I will miss my cat and dog. And I will miss my TV and my home. I am really too much of a homebody.

But I will take lots of pictures and post them when I get back. I am leaving at 6:30 in the morning on the 4th of July.

Yeah--meet me there--you would actually give me hope that I would have a good time. It would be a guarantee that I would have a good time and I wouldnt worry. ;)

Have a good time! What could be more fun than the beach and fireworks. Oh wait, it would be more fun if Denise and I were there!
Now I got the biloxi blues....
