I feel like I’ve made this 2.26 hour trip 100 times this summer! This trip I started the audio book 13 Moons by Charles Frasier (the author of Cold Mountain). I’m only 2/13 CD’s through though, so I think I’ve got to take a few more car trips to finish it!
I left Charlotte just after noon and packed a sandwich and a Fage to have when I got there since I had a later breakfast. The whole trip I debated eating the sandwich, but I kept deciding I wasn’t that hungry yet and would enjoy it more if I waited. I’m glad I did!
Hummus, cuc, pesto + spinach on honey wheat -
132 miles later….
I mixed my Fage with some of my parents fresh fruit! Nectarine and blueberries –
And found some juicy watermelon in the fridge too!
My parents’ house is a haven of diet soft drinks (my dad buys them on sale and they have a huge stock) so I allow myself to enjoy them while I visit. I had a Dr. Perky today – and was joined by The Grinch! My mom teaches children’s literature and always has little puppets and dolls around.
Don’t tell the husband, but our bears are all ready for him to come to bed tonight! We always put them in there to keep the other company when one of us is away – sometimes they sneak into each other’s clothes and make-up and cause mischief!! (Eye rolling is allowed ) I had two of these guys forever and he’s always been funny at making them come to life.
Dad’s taking me to dinner tonight (mom’s going out with friends) and I think we’re going to Gulf Rim!
