Ahhhhh.... I'm finally home.
I got up this morning and headed to LS to see Edith, Victoria and anyone else I could run into. Lucky for me, I also got to see KR, John, PDub, PLull, PaulS, Alice, and Sean. Oh and Nick (whose name I forgot completely at the time).
Sadly, I went to Target for my Diet Coke with Splenda and there was none to be found. I'm a little worried now. Last Wednesday I had stopped at one on the start of my trip in the cities and there wasn't any then either. I hope to God they didn't stop stocking it. I'll have to drive to Wisconsin for my fix and I'm not sure I have enough gas money for that. For sure I'll have to stock up when I go back for Nika's baptism. Hopefully my car will hold enough to tide me over for awhile.
So I was going to tally up all the hours in my car. Let's try this:
Wednesday: 4 to the cities, 10 to our first stop
Thursday: 4 to Cleveland, plus an hour in town
Friday: 4 to Cincinnati
Saturday: 1 in town
Sunday: 13.5 back to the cities
Monday: 1 in town, 4 back home
So what does that come to? 42.5 hours. Wow. That's a work week. Uffda.
The trip was awesome though. I loved every minute - riding in the car and make obscene stories out of Yes & No books; yelling at Garmin; speaking in a British accent or Polish or Jewish or Bolgarian (at one point); the game; the opera; Frank; the food; and the boys.
Oh the boys. I do miss them already. Sometimes I can't believe that I know them but I do and I'm so blessed. I wish I could see them more often.
So now, I'm catching up on blogs and doing laundry for tomorrow begins another workweek. Should be good.
