Yay....we made it to IL!
Today is the first day of my road trip to visit colleges and meet lacrosse coaches and see stadiums! So exciting....or at least it was this morning when we headed out. After 12 hours in the car, I am pooped!
The whether held up for the most part. A bit of rain but not too bad.
The construction wasn't too bad. Parts slowed us down but nothing major. Maybe 30 minutes.
Hubby has to work so he stayed home with other 2 kids, while I took two oldest boys.
12 hours on the road: exhausting
Freaking tolls: expensive
Doing all the driving alone: horsepucky
Bonding with my boys...priceless :-)
They crack me up. They laughed and talked and even played music and talked about songs, etc. For once they weren't glued to their gadgets. So we bonded for a long time. Then finally they zoned out, which was okay because we had bonded.
So while they slept for a while, I zoned out into my own world, and I bonded with my characters!
Some of the best thinking I do is when I'm driving. Especially long distance alone (or with kids sleeping). Just me and the open road and my story...priceless :-)
So tell me, where and when do you do your best thinking? Inquiring minds want to know.
