Time Flies

Our time in Tennessee seemed to fly by, yet went slowly too. It’s weird how that can occur.  We filled most free days by doing something, going somewhere, seeing someone.

There is so much history in TN; in the area we stayed in. We barely scratched the surface. We visited Cannonsburgh in Murfreesboro where we wandered the old homes and saw the world’s largest cedar bucket! The kids got a kick out of that. We visited the Chattanooga Choo Choo, all dolled up in holiday decorations. Daily I drove by historical marker signs, old cemeteries, and battlegrounds. Right before we left the area, we visited Stones River National Battlefield where the girls earned another Junior Ranger badge and we were fortunate enough to witness the ceremony being held at the National Cemetery. Being that we’re both veterans, it was important for the kids to see this. We helped lay the wreaths on the graves for the Wreaths Across America event.

We were so happy that we were able to spend Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas with Jeff’s family. It was nice being close to them for the holidays. We were even able to continue on our tradition of making Christmas cookies for friends and family: in my sister in laws amazing kitchen with DOUBLE OVENS! How sweet that was!

We did have a bittersweet moment and our sweet 18 years young kitty Chamele peacefully left us. The girls were with Grandma and Grandpa, I was at work and Jeff was at home with her all day. He stayed by her side until she took her last breath. She made it until right before I got home from work. It was like she was trying to hold on to say one last goodbye but just didn’t quite make it. We decided to have her cremated and per the kids’ request, she travels on with us. We sure do miss her.

After my contract was up with Amazon, we went down to Chattanooga to stay with Jeff’s parents and to celebrate Christmas. We had fun ice skating, exploring the Christmas lights at Rock City and spending quality time with the family before we headed west.

    • Hi. I don’t believe there are actually any campgrounds IN Murfreesboro due to a city ordinance. There are a few in Manchester (nice and quiet) and then Smyrna and obviously further away in Nashville area.
