I’ve spent the last 2 days bumming around, driving, thinking, wandering…it’s been good. Oh yeah, and sleeping. Consistently. It’s a wonder what that will do for a person. I swear being horizontal is one of my favourite hobbies.
Driving right before a holiday weekend is interesting. Folks seem like they have left their brains at home, the police are out in full force, and the roads are flooded with RV’s…so I opted to hug the slow lane and take it all in. I love how each state announces itself on the interstate. I think we should do the same in Canada. It would be so much more fun than those boring brown and white signs.
The only part about this trip that kind of sucked was that I had nobody to make jokes with while I was driving. I ended up taking pictures and tweeting them to my husband instead. Normally we’d both start yelling out a string of fast food items when we drive under an overpass like this (inside joke), but since it was just me, all I did was smirk and think that if Scott was here, we’d be shouting “big mac! large fries, chocolate shake! cooooooooooooooooooke!!”).
I knew it was officially time to start heading home when I went to Target (for the second time) and I spent all my time looking at stuff for the kids and Scott. I even thought the little kids screaming with boredom while their moms shopped were endearing. Yeah…
When I hit Kalamazoo, I ordered a pizza from Erbelli’s (highly recommended by the guy at the hotel check-in). I also made myself a wine spritzer in my “Keep Calm & Carry On” mug that my bestfriend got me for my birthday. Hey, I’m all class. Tomorrow – home! I miss my family. That’s a good thing.
