Evie, my nine-month-old Shih-Tzu--also known as "Buick Grill" (note smile)--and I putted into the driveway around 3:00 yesterday afternoon. It had taken us 18 hours to drive from northern Indiana to southern Virginia. A two-day jaunt. Getting there took us 21 hours. My daughter Amy kept calling. "Where are you now, Mom?"
I may have made a few wrong turns here and there!
Yes, I do have a GPS. Two old ones, in fact....LOST in my garage. My grandson downloaded WAZE to my cellphone. But I still managed to zig when I should have zagged.
Seeing the family is always great, isn't it? Hugs and kisses amid laughter. My two little great-grandsons, Benjamin and Zander have grown so much. And just how I could have "greats" when I'm barely 39 is a mystery to me.
If I hadn't driven enough, I drove across the state to meet up with two other authors for an afternoon of writing talk and laughter.
Sunday brought my son-in-law a surprise. I had tickets for Bart, Amy, and me to attend a Colts game. Thank goodness they won.
During the 44 hours of driving this past week, I did a lot of plotting for another series. This may explain my getting lost so many times. How many of you plot or mentally write a chapter when you drive...or shower...or go to the movies? Odd how our minds work, isn't it?
And I'm home. My bed is waiting for me. Evie is already there. When you travel, do you feel like you need a vacation after you get home? Boy-oh-boy, I will definitely sleep in tomorrow. Until next time, take care and stay healthy. Hugs.
