Alive and Well

7 meals at fast food restaurants = $200
120 gallons of gas = $300
40 hours of non-stop driving from DC to Utah = nearly all my sanity
Arriving safely with all the children still alive = priceless

We're here.

We made it.

And it wasn't really as bad as I thought it would be.

I'm not sure what that says about my mental state.

Now...to do it all over again in six weeks.

eek.

Hope you'll have a fabulous and relaxing time with the kids!

You're awesome...it takes us 4 days to make it there and we only have 2 (old) kids!

BTW, love love love the Geneen Roth book. Thanks for recommending it.

We've made that same trip many times (although all the way to California only 3 times). Have fun and enjoy!

By the way, I got a shock when I realized that in a few months I'll have officially lived in Virginia longer than Minnesota. I'll still always say I"m Minnesotan though. :)
