I we left our house at 6:15am and arrived at 2:30. We made 3 stops. First to eat breakfast (where Little Man spilled syrup on his clothes and had to change) in Lufkin, TX. Stopped in Marshall, TX for gas and potty break (ended up taking almost 30 minutes because he had to poop). Then we stopped at the Arkansas state sign on the side of the road to continue my pictures of each state he’s been in. So by the time we arrived, we were both pretty tired of the car. I bet my car was happy to be not running for a couple hours as well! Mountain driving in a sedan is nowhere near as fun as being in a 4 wheel drive! We have relaxed, Little Man is in the bathroom for another 30-60 minute time period, and I got to shower and wash my hair which I meant to do last night but was too tired. We will be heading out to dinner with the family when he’s done, I really look forward to seeing my cousins!
On the bad side, my body decides to screw my driving by starting my period last night 2 hours before bed. Gee thanks! Then I forgot my razor and my $17 hair mousse that helps my hair stay down. The only soap in this place are these itty bitty lavender bars and shampoo I can’t use because I’m allergic to! Thank goodness I brought mine! I also have an infection in my gums so I’m in pain like hell and can barely eat. Fun fun! Hopefully someone will have some antibiotics they can spare for me! Why did I remember some things and not the others? Who the hell knows, that’s how traveling is!
My cousin left Houston at 8 am and is not even here yet! She got stuck in traffic leaving the city and then lunch hour in another town as well. Poor thing! But she has 3 kids (2 of which are teenagers) so getting them out the door was probably a lot harder!
I’m off to go eat. Have a great night!
