This is the trip that never ends, it just goes on and on...
Holy mokes! That drive took forever. The part of the trip that normally takes 6 hours, took almost 9 and the part that takes 4 dragged on to 6.5. Consequently I have had more Diet Dr. Pepper cocktails (and one Monster and one 5 Hour Energy - as long as I'm being honest here) in the past 4 days than I've had in the past 4 years put together. I'm surprised I can type what with all the tremors and heart racing.
So, practically, it was forever in car hours with a four year old. We had planned on being home for Father's Day, but since we rolled into St. George at about 2 AM (thanks, Mr. O for calling ahead and booking a hotel room for us), I just couldn't face getting in the car again the next day. And I noticed that the hotel was running a $30 off special, so we stayed.
And it was nice.
But it's good to be back. So good. (Especially since Mr. O fixed my bike tire and we got a ride in tonight).
P.S. No, I do not have mustache. I mean, not a black one.
P.P.S. Yes, I actually got in the pool with the kids. I know, Mother of the Year right there.
