These last few days have been grueling. We had to get every last little thing out of our apartment in Portage and down to Ft. Wayne. As I type we’re finishing cleaning the apartment and praying that everything fits into mine and Mitch’s cars to get them over to some friends’ house who graciously offered to let me park my car there while we’re away.
I never thought that I would look forward to a 13ish hour drive as much as I am. You see, driving is kind of what Mitch and I do. We didn’t live in the same town until two weeks before our wedding. For a good chunk of time we were 5 hours apart and another chunk we were 4 hours apart. So, we have the driving thing down. On top of that, I’ve found that driving is when I can clear my head and as crazy as it sounds I get some of my most creative thoughts on long road trips. I’m looking forward to kicking back and relaxing for half of the drive and really just can’t wait to get back to Colorado and see everyone.
Tomorrow could be an interesting trip for little RC though. His 5 hour trips to and from Ft. Wayne have been breezes and he is pretty much a pro. However, a trip 3 times that long might be interesting. On top of that he had his manhood taken away today. Why did we do it so close to the drive? Well every other animal we’ve had that has gotten fixed has always been groggy and out of it for a couple of days. So we figured that he’d at least sleep most of the way. WRONG! He is currently being a crazy cat sprinting all over the house and attacking my hands while I type. Something tells me this cat doesn’t know the meaning of groggy. We shall see…
I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving and eats lots of turkey!
