Just a bit of time for a quick update tonight. We just got back from our trip. The girls woke us up before dawn. Elder was sniffling and sneezing, generally miserable, and Younger was crying because of her ear. I think she may have caught swimmer’s ear in the pool yesterday. So we decided to go ahead and hit the road, skipping the FIL’s house on the way back. We drove straight through.
I must have put 10 straight hours in the driver’s seat. We stopped a couple of times for bathroom breaks, gas, and food, but I don’t think I actually rested until we were about an hour from the house. I took a look at myself in the rest stop bathroom and I looked like death, heavy bags under my eyes. I swear I had sea legs.
