So, where has David been for the last ten days??

17 Aug

In the last ten days, several significant things have happened in the Wike household. You want the list??

1. In the past 15 days I’ve put over 1700 miles on Diana’s car …
2. Went to Sunset Beach for a couple of days with Diana’s family.
3. Took my fam down to Isle of Palms from there to meet up with my parents, my sister Elaine and her husband, Karl, my sister Donna and her daughter Jill and Jill’s boyfriend, Joe.
4. Went out on the beach a couple of times.
5. Fished several times with Drew. (He fished for BOTH WEEKS. DREW caught a 15 inch flounder that we ate … YUM!! Caught a similar sized sheepshead fish that was equally as good. Caught a bunch of shrimp, a couple of rays, a couple of sharks, and a ton of spots and croakers. I caught a bunch of croakers and several spots.)
6. Drove a golf cart all over the Isle.
7. Went to Wal-Mart about a million times.
8. Went to downtown Charleston, of course to make the obligatory trip to the Market and to King Street. Did NOT see Erica there, but saw a million shops. Shopped them all.
9. Had a great time with my folks.
10. For the first time EVER, missed two Sundays in a row at EBC.
11. Left late Friday to come home, dump suitcases, repack for Clemson.
12. Left Saturday morning at 7:30 for Clemson.
13. Got to Clemson at 11:00. Krissy found Tyler Yaken, who provided 10 strong backs from FCA to carry her stuff up. Joel and Allyson were there to help, but the FCAers had already carried it all off.
14. Drove to Easley for the second load of stuff we’d already stored at Mom & Dad’s house.
15. Came back to unload again. Another couple of helpers grabbed the stuff.
16. Found a parking place and FINALLY walked to the dorm. At this point, I have carried NOTHING upstairs.
17. Helped unpack stuff.
18. FINALLY got lunch at 3:00pm at Fuddrucker’s in Anderson.
19. Had to run BACK to Clemson because Krissy forgot her keys.
20. Went back to Anderson to go to Bed, Bath, & Beyond, Ross, Wal-Mart, Sams, and Target.
21. BACK to the dorm to unpack that stuff. This time, I got to carry a case of bottled water about a half-mile and then up the stairs.
22. Went to Fatz to meet the Whites and Jesse’s roommate.
23. Back to Easley with Diana and Kristina!!!
24. Back to Clemson on Sunday morning to go to church with Krissy, Jesse, and the Whites. Went to DCF with Stuart and Shannon (Busha) Hayes. It was a great morning of worship!
25. Drove Krissy back to dorm. As we arrived, she told us she didn’t have time for a long goodbye. I reached back, grabbed her hand, told her I love her and I am proud of her. DID NOT CRY!!!
26. Cannot say the same for my lovely bride.
27. Watched her walk back to her dorm. Okay, as I write this my eyes are getting moist. (Moist … A word, used for Jessica Brown)
28. Went to Easley to meet my folks for lunch.
29. Back to their house to pack the car.
30. Drove back to Florence and then STARTED getting Drew ready for his first day at West Florence.
