ROAD TRIP REFLECTIONS

So, back from the reunion and I have to say it used to be MUCH easier to do a turn and burn road trip...

And factor in a two year old passenger to make it more...well...interesting.

How many times can you watch Monsters Inc. or Finding Nemo in a thirteeen hour period... Or better yet how many times HAVE you?

Not as many as me I bet...

It is an art form to take a two year with you at EVERY bathroom stop, she goes potty, you go potty and she never touches a single dirty surface...

It was super hot in West Virginia... I think it was hotter than Florida...

Not good when you're having forty~five hot flashes a day... Makes group pictures less enjoyable...

But you know what? Unlike here where our air vents are in the ceiling, theirs are in the floor... Do you see where I'm going with this?

How delicious is cold air up your dress when standing over a floor vent during a hot flash?

It truly is the little things in life...

That posting made me giggle - alot. I can just envision you standing over the vents and telling family members to come over to you so that you wouldn't have to leave your vent. Hugs - Julie

I'm picturing you ala Marilyn standing over the vent with your Magnolia Pearl blowing in the wind! Bet Mr. Pea loved that!
You know you wouldn't trade "Finding Nemo" for all the "Chocolat" in the world!

Shelley you made me laugh! I haven't even seen Monster's Ink once, and now I think I will keep it that way. At least until I have to take the little ones on a road trip.
I wish you a belated birthday...I turned 55 on the 23rd. Hot flashes? yep!
hugs
