Dad has been so excited all week about going to visit my sister Nancy in Atlanta while David and I were heading to Charleston, SC for a few days of vacation.
When we were getting ready to leave for vacation, we had to wake Dad up early (9:30a.m.) in order for him to be ready in time for Inky to drive him to Atlanta.
Wake up sweetie. I said with a slight voice. Today we are leaving for Atlanta.
We are leaving for Atlanta? He asked.
Nobody tells me anything. He whined.
We're just trying to keep your life exciting and full of surprises! I replied.
It's always easier to explain that it was a surprise, then to remind him that he forgot!
