You know it’s not all fun and games around here. I have had a very long, hectic week (and it’s only Wednesday).
I have never taken xanax, but have always
thought known that I’d be a good candidate.
This coming weekend we will proceed to pack the following people into a Suburban:
(pictured below from left to right)
My brother in law, my sister, (in her arms) my nephew a 4 week old baby, my niece a 3.5 year old, my other niece a 2 year old, me, Penelope, Chance (my husband) and Paisley.
That’s 7 people & 2 dogs.
We all fit. Oh and we’ll be pulling my cargo trailer behind, so don’t worry about the strollers, suitcases, coolers, baby beds, dog kennels, and toothbrushes- they will fit too.
Thanks to the gas prices (and insanity), we will be spending about 11 or 12 hours packed in like sardines.
I don’t do car trips very well. In fact, I’m down right neurotic and I despise them.
But it’s Dad’s birthday… so we travel! He wanted his kids home with him to celebrate with him… so we comply!
I pray when we arrive that there is a plethora of:
And that’s all I can think of that I want because I’m so preoccupied with the mental image of us all in one car traveling for 11-12 hours, that every ounce of any functioning brain cell is… is…. not working.
I’ll be gone for awhile… and I
probably won’t be blogging.
Please pray for my sanity and that my husband still loves me when we arrive back early next week.
For the rest of this week (pre-road trip) I’m headed out to finish up a design project… out of town.
See you next week!
My sister just emailed me her take on the adventure.
