1000 plus miles and three days later...

we have returned home.

The kids were wonderful. There were some dicey times when I just wanted to pull into the nearest gas station and sob my eyes out because I couldn't stand listening to another knock knock joke, but all in all, it was a good trip. I can't say it was a relaxing one.

Too worn out for a blog entry of any interest or humor tonight, so I leave you with this teaser:

Plastic grocery bags + Nashville rush hour/Thanksgiving travel traffic = one good urinal.

I'm glad you're home safely. (You remind me of the little green port-a-potty, I think it was really an old bowl, that my father carried in the trunk for me when we went on trips in the 1960s. No wonder I hold it now! I'd rather go in a plastic bag than in some public washrooms. Wait, how did I get on this topic...)

NO - you did NOT use a plastic grocery bag!

Eeeeek!

Glad you're back home and safe;)

Rush hour was so strange around here... really bad on Wednesday, then only bad around the malls today (as one might expect). But glad you had a good trip.

Jedimerc ... are you from Nashville? We were actually heading for Franklin, so we had to endure the 65/40 splitoff and then that other one that I can't think of .... maybe the 65 and something else splitoff. I don't know... I just know I was sitting in the van with preschooler on my lap trying to pee... so on to the story.

Nope, I'm from Dallas, but I consider myself a fellow Southerner; however I have been through Nashville a few times and know how horrible their traffic is... so much construction (I usually take the 240 bypass around the south end of the city I think) in that area, but it's been growing so much that it's hard to keep up... just like here in Dallas, once we finish one freeway we need a bigger one to compensate for the growth while the freeway was under construction.

I'm going to go read the story now, but I do have to say that you are so lucky it was a quality shopping bag without holes...because that really would have sucked. It would have been like a really bad water balloon. LOL!
