Road Trip!!!!! Noooooo!!!!!

     After today I don't know how often I will be able to post. For the next week and a half it may be spotty. I am still working on chapter five.

     Tomorrow is the day I have been dreading for months.  We are going on a road trip all the way to California.  My daughter is graduating from Cal State Fullerton.  I am so happy and proud of her, I just wish she had gone to school here in Utah where I wouldn't have to endure a ten plus hour drive to get there.
     Of course, it's not just the drive itself.  I am going to be in an enclosed space with my hubby and four, count em', four of my children.  I have been in this situation before with tragic results.  There have been multiple instances of car sickness, and you all know how I feel about vomit. (see May 3rd post )  The running-out-of-gas-in-twenty-degree-weather incident and there has been the no-working-heater-in-central-Utah-in-the-middle-of-January incident.  Not to mention the millions of, "How much longer? "I have to go to the bathroom!" "I'm hungry!" "Why can't we eat ice cream in the car?" "He's looking at me!"  "She's drooling on my pillow!"  And all the other assorted whining, complaining and fighting.
     So think of me tomorrow when you have a quiet moment and keep your fingers crossed that we all get there safe sound and for some of the more obnoxious ones, alive. :)
