What would you do if it was midnight and you wanted to be in bed (since you’re getting up at 4:30 a.m.) but you’re waiting on clothes to dry and rushing around packing and thinking of a hundred things you forgot and wondering what your problem is, because every trip ends up being like this?
I know what I’d do. I would dye my hair. A lovely golden brown. Because a 3-dollar box of hair dye from Target should not only be able to hide two-toned, rooty-looking hair. It should also be able to get rid of split ends, no?
Mom called with news about Grandma. I wrote down what she said, then cleaned off my desk and lost the paper. Something is fractured in her spine. It has a number. (T9?) It’s a (compressed?) fracture. And she might have broken her tailbone. Nurses? Help? Mom says she’s in good spirits though. Please keep praying for her.
Our friends Holly and Duey let us borrow their dual-screen DVD player for our trip. Gabe set it up tonight, and oh my word. I used to be of the mindset that children should busy themselves with travel bingo and the alphabet game the entire trip. And books if they don’t get carsick. None of this mindless movie-watching stuff. Ha! We’ve road-tripped enough in the past few months to change my mind. The hills are alive with the Sound of Music! And Sleeping Beauty. And Narnia. And Boz. Bless you, Holly and Duey!
Off I go to rinse! And hopefully sleep! Enjoy your Wednesday! May you spend most of it outside a mini-van!
