If you ever want a good work out, spend the day packing a trailer!! My body hurts all over…especially my legs! That first step up to the trailer is so high, it’s like a lunge every time.
We had most of the trailer packed and ready to go, but there’s always the last few things…which turn into a few more things and even a few more.
Now, we are packed!
Since we’re leaving in the middle of the night, we decided to sleep the first part of the night in the trailer, that way we don’t have to bring all our bedding out at 2am. We really, really need to get bedding and pillows just for the trailer!! At the moment everyone is asleep except me. Daddy went to sleep at 8, so that he’ll be rested while driving through the night. On a long trip like this – 9 to 10 hours – we try to do a good portion of it during the night so the kids can sleep. That way we don’t have to stop as often.
I really enjoy long trips in the car, especially with my wonderful husband. We talk and laugh – it’s usually the gasping for breath with tears rolling down my cheeks kind of laughing. We eat sandwiches and snacks and drink coffee. While the kids are sleeping we quietly listen to music, usually something that my amazingly patient husband has to suffer through – this time it’ll be songs from the show Smash…yay!! I usually end up playing a game or two on my laptop, read my kindle and I always, always spend time texting my friend Superwomen!!! She’s the best!
What I do not do is drive. That’s better left to Daddy. He prefers to do it, I prefer to let him – especially now with the trailer.
I look forward to the long drives, especially the ones to Canada! It’s always a nice feeling knowing that I’m heading home to see my friends and family. This time is even more special because we are having the Milk Monkey’s baby dedication. I have family travelling from all over so they can attend. It’ll be so nice to see everyone. I’m so excited!!!
I guess I should try to get a little sleep before we leave!
