Finally, it came! The kids waited so patiently for the day to come.
Tail end of last week was taken up with cleaning and laundr, laundry, laundry.
Thursday was bible study in the afternoon for me and I was so distracted I ran over a skateboard on the way out. So sad, it was brand new, too. That left me frazzled for the rest of the day. Ugh. I’m too easily traumatized and shocked, right? Right.
Friday: packing and laundry. Kids bored because they pack and mom unpacks and washes what was packed and repacks. Off to bed…the boys who said they’d be up all night were out like a light. God is good! They need their sleep.
We get up at 3:30, load up and are on the road in an hour. Dog is excited as are the children but I manage to sleep at some point. This time I get to drive more! As a result, while we’re in El Paso we opt to drive straight throught instead of stop in Tucson, AZ. I only get tailgated once but that was plenty. The I-10 seems to be perpetually under construction. Going 80mph down to 45mph and one lane just HURTS, that is all. I have a close bond with my gas pedal.
We made it around 11:30pm to SIL’s, hale and hearty but tired. Because we drove straight through, we got to go to church with SIL on Sunday, have lunch then in the eve go have cheap n good sushi at Irvine Spectrum. So far, so fun!
