Hello again from New Mexico

Just like my last post, I'm in New Mexico. Quite a bit has happened in the past couple days:

  • We made it to California

  • Spontaneously located (via Facebook) and met up with some old friends in Rancho Cucamonga

  • Mom went back in the hospital

  • Spent time with family in Laguna Niguel and San Diego

  • Mom was released from the hospital!!!

  • Attended a lovely service for Bryan's grandmother

  • Drove 706 miles out of California today to end up here!
Everyone's looking and feeling a little road weary. We haven't spent two nights in the same place since we left last Wednesday. Today, especially, the children seemed done with this adventure. After all, the only thing to look forward to when they got up this morning was a whole lot of driving through the desert.

Bryan and I are trying extra hard to keep positive attitudes and cheerful countenances. Overall, the children have been troopers! We only stopped three times today with over 12 hours on the road.

I must admit that Bryan and I did get a little punchy that last hour on the road. Suddenly 80's songs have never been so funny, Bryan's finding deep meaning in road signs, and Jamers' Facebook comments have me almost squirting Monster through my nose. Good times, good times.

  1. I am so glad to hear that you are keeping your happy! :) Can't wait to see you guys back home. As for getting punchy...just so glad you did not have any glitter to really entertain the troops! However, seeing Monster spray out the nose would be a treat. :) LOL! Hang there lady....you guys are doing great.
