Why we liked it-
no traffic on I-77 the whole trip from SC to OH
listening to our own choice of music and talks
no squealing from child #2
getting to watch my adorable children sleep
drinking fully loaded coffee at 10pm
we actually got to see the sunrise
snacking like a college kid all night long
chili lime plantains- fiesta in your mouth- sure to keep you from falling asleep at the wheel
Why we didn't like it so much-
strange tummy ache the next day
constant adjusting of dangling sleeping heads
the boys had no interest in going back to sleep once we arrived
everyone was a bit grumpier (except me of course) from sleeping less than usual
seeing relatives for the first time in a while with giant bags under the eyes
didn't get to crochet or read while we drove
finding a nice potty and coffeeshop is much harder in the middle of the night.
Will we do it again?
Most definitely- But I need to make another run to the hispanic grocery store first.
