Spring Break - Road Trip
Nolan has been instructed that of the three adults going on this trip (Arielle, himself and me) HE is the one that stays awake. The significance being WE are the drivers. He's riding shot gun and is tasked with talking - a lot.
Shoot! What could happen on a road trip???? ::sigh::
Bags are packed. We had enough hotel points to get one hotel room free and we'll pay for the other - not the hotel we wanted to stay at....but on the other hand not the cheapest hotel either. I found one at 1/2 this price on West 6th and Michael said, "No."
The kids and I are heading to Oregon. Shhhhh....we may be surprising my Dad....but Mom knows we're coming....
For those unaware, the last really big road trip I took, without Michael, included a 9. earthquake, a tsunami, communication black out from the family, and 8 days trying to hop a ride home.
The chances of repeating that are VERY slim...and this time I have all the Gherkins with ME.....maybe that's why Michael is making sure I have tools, water, food, sleeping bag.... maybe it's why Stacia keeps asking, "Why can't we take the train?"
Arielle and I are confident. Krista does this alone - we've got it. It's time to do this thing - get out there and have adventures. ::ye haw::
