Surprise! Get a few things together, we’re going on a road trip! To… mow the grass? What could possibly be more fun than driving 1,000 miles roundtrip on a busy 4th of July weekend with 3 small kids in the car all just to mow some grass? Seriously? Mow the grass? If that doesn’t say side-splitting good time, then I don’t know what.
I am envious of everyone who has been able to enjoy the beach as part of their vacation. I got to quickly sight-see around Flint, Michigan.
Amid this excursion, we took at least 20 wrong turns. I have a long list of small towns where we had to stop for bathroom breaks. Abby cried so hard she vomited in the backseat. We spent 3 hours until midnight just to find a motel. We slowly passed through bumper to bumper road construction and Chicago and have I mentioned that I absolutely with every fiber of my being HATE traffic. I was a mess of nail-biting paranoia and stress for the majority of our trip.
In all, however, it was nice to get away. To visit some place that I’ve never been before, but I’ll probably be back to again next month. Because the grass, it’s going to need another mowing. (Seriously?) There was a whirlpool at the motel which was greatly appreciated. It wasn’t as bad as I make it out to be. I’ve never been more excited to see home, though.
