Booking hotel for one day in Gatlinburg: Check
Comfortable full-size rental car to save wear and tear on Rita [the Kia]: Check
Countdown clock now on my comp: Check
Okay, so raindrops keep falling and the job schedule change situation [that I have yet to want to explain here] is still in the works to getting evened out, but there's that to look forward to, so the world doesn't look like it's going to fall apart again in totality. This is a plus and I know know that if the money is there, we HAVE to spend one of our holidays in the mountains. Period.
So yeah, this is going to do so much to make things look brighter.
Just in time.
