Merry Christmas to MEEEEE!

So here in New Mexico...I wake up to the excitement of my husband telling everyone in the family, "we have wireless internet!!" Apparently, one of the neighbors has a wi-fi connection, and we can tap into it from the livingroom. Did you catch that?! Do you KNOW what this means?!

That's right, I can breath for the next two weeks! (er, I mean "blog"!) Now, (ms. jae), I am officially feeling the Christmas spirit! fa la la la la, LA LA LA LA!!

Our drive wasn't too bad. It did take us 17 hours, and we did it all in one shot. That's not to say we didn't TRY to stop for the night. There were no vacancies, ANYWHERE! And I found myself explaining to my four year old that just like Baby Jesus, we had no where to sleep. (Yes, I explained the nativity to Sweetie while we were in a truckstop bathroom at one o'clock in the morning. So what?!)

Everyone was excited to finally be at Grandpa's house, especially Bud-hah who asked nonstop since the first item of clothing was packed until we pulled into the drive way a thousand miles later. And though Tiny was pissed at being strapped into her carseat after the first three hours, we continued our drive as Emily Rose tried to break free from the backseat. All I can say is that we were i.m.p.r.e.s.s.e.d.

Needless to say, we all made it safe and sound. And now, if you'll excuse me, I have some blogs to read! ; )

  10. I feel for you one the 17 hour drive. I have done way too much of that this year. Happy Christmas, and good luck with the drive home.

  11. Quick question: Do feel that your chronic medical condition, noassitol, makes long drives more or less comfortable? I would think less padding would be bad, but there's not much worse that a butt that's asleep! Just wondering...

  12. Wonderful to hear that you made it safely. 17 hours even for a sane human will cause mental insanity!!! If worse comes to worse you can always dose them with benadryl on the way home. I know it sounds terrible, but my pediatrician said it was FINE. Sane parents raise sane children.

  13. I will admit that most of our 14-33 hour car trips were spent sleeping in shifts at rest areas! LOL.

    Sad, I know. But cheap! :)

  14. Oh, so happy to hear that the JOY of High Speed internet will at least put you in the Christmas spirit. (Whatever it takes)

    So... are your children sleeping in the garage?

    Thinking of driving that long makes me SICK. We did that once, and just SLEPT in the Truck stop parking lot. Oh the memories.

    Glad you are there safe. Love you. Merry Christmas!

  15. I can picture it... You holding your child over a pee stained toliet seat (because like in all truck stops all of the toliet seat covers are pulled out and thrown on the floor to soak up the standing water)... "You see baby Jesus was born in a barn because he had no where to sleep... and you're just like him!" LOL LOL LOL
