A Quick Trip

Some days I am just too tired to hunt for the other font, today is one of those days… I do have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow at 2pm and honestly as much as I hate doctors, I hate coughing this much even more!! As I mentioned un an earlier post somewhere, we took a quick trip yesterday and today.

We decided that we needed a quick get away. So we went to Saginaw for a night. It is nice to get away for a night sometimes. Although feeling the way that I do, it has not been fun as it would have been had I been totally well. But i am enjoying it as much as I can.

We are leaving in a little bit to go back home. It has been a nice trip and since I actually found out some really great information by accident. Last September we were planning a really great vacation/birthday cruise, but because I can not get a passport yet we were having issues because the cruise was an Alaskan one that goes into Canada, so I was not going to be able to go.So I thought! Here in Michigan we can get enhanced driver’s licenses, which allow us to cross into Canada and come back to the US without a passport.

I was reading on the website that it also works for sea travel, like a cruise! So, I can get one of those and go on my cruise too. You can use the enhanced driver’s license to  to anywhere in the Western Hemisphere by land or sea. Meaning as long as I can take a cruise or drive to these places I can go on my enhanced driver’s license. Now, the only drawback is that I can not fly anywhere with it, but hey, I will take what I can get!! So that was some great news, now I can maybe go on my Alaskan cruise I wanted to go on.

Last night we went to the Olive Garden, our favorite place here in Saginaw. We have never gotten bad service at the one here, which is why we love it so much. We went about 8pm last night because I needed a nap, had no wait at all. Which I love. As usual my eyes were way bigger than my stomach! So, I have leftovers for today. I might just eat them for dinner later after we get home. Although I do think that we might stop at Texas Roadhouse on the way home for a late lunch and you know I will have leftovers from there too! So, I will have kind of a buffet of stuff to munch on tonight.

When I see the doctor tomorrow, I need to get my asthma inhalers, because up until this winter my asthma has been fine. This year it just went haywire!! Ugh. Well, I think I am going to go. Ciao!!



  1. It is great to get away even if it is just for one night. We did the Alaska cruise four years ago and loved it.

  2. I have always wanted to go to Canada AND Alaska- can I come?! ;)


Tell me about yourself....
