An Unexpected Side Trip

A little over a week ago I was invited on an unexpected side trip. My mom had to go to North Carolina to pick-up my grandma and bring her and her car back west to Arizona for the, since my mom didn't want to do the driving all alone, she bought me a ticket to join her. On Nov. 20th I flew to Burlington, North Carolina, which is where I grew up, and it was great to be able to go back, even if it was only a few days. I hadn't been to NC in about 5 years so it was good to be back. I was there with my mom and grandma over Thanksgiving and then on the 24th we set out on our road trip. We stopped for a couple of nights in Mobile, Alabama to visit my Uncle Bill and Aunt Betty and we left my grandma there for Christmas and New Years and mom and I continued on the journey. It took us three more days of driving once we left Mobile but we finally made it to Yuma, Arizona! In a few days I will be flying back to Mexico to join up again with Jorge and get ready for Christmas in Mexico.
