Well, I'm basically going to be doing the same thing the next few weeks. Tonight I'm in Bryan, Arkansas and this place is on fire! If there were a stage and some sort of drinking contest or a booze cruise, this would be televised. I'm confident Pitbull would be making an appearance, maybe even with JLo.
(When am I going to stop talking about these two people?)
Since I'm hovered in the corner of a luxurious Comfort Inn with my three children sleeping, I'm going to make this short.
Overall the trip went well. We had two meals at Cracker Barrel which is a surprising hit with all the travelers, proving itself as the restaurant/store that can cross generations. It also has a fabulous pumpkin spice candle right now that everyone should purchase immediately, they surely will sell out by the time you should be burning a pumpkin scented candle in October.
We only drove 500 out of the 1100 total we have to travel, and tomorrow has all the makings of a rough day ahead of us. The good news for you all is that I'm sure there will be all sorts of stories and emotions and freak outs to come out of this.
I'll try to take good notes and/or photos so you can laugh at my misery later.
Best traveler of the day?
Worst Traveler of the day?
My Mother comes in second for worst traveler of the day due to her horrible back pain and all the discussion and limitation that comes out of that. Since she really is in a lot of pain though, and I can't believe how much she is trying to help, she'll just be classified as traveler with the most ailments.
So far so good on the going to sleep angle of things here. Stella even sported her big brother's t-shirt for bed since I totally forgot to pack her pajamas...a shining example of my disorganization and overall lack of preparation for this trip.
I wonder who gave her all those markers?
We'll start again tomorrow and hopefully make it to Indiana before 10 pm and/or before any of us decide to just live forever in somewhere like the Cracker Barrel in West Memphis, Arkansas....which I could definitely see myself doing if they could promise me a booze cruise.
P.S. I really hope this makes some level of sense. I'm not proofing it because I am not sure I'm going to stay awake long enough to make that happen.
