...the kids and I took a leisurely trip down to Northern Virginia on Saturday to visit one of my oldest (literally, ha, we'll see if she reads this) friends, Laura (Laura who always makes me feel like I'm talking in the third person).
We went through a few flurries on the beltway. And then we got on the road toward Annapolis and the Bay Bridge and all of a sudden I was in a snow globe. I kept thinking, "Look at the yellow line on the left, then the white lines on the right." And then I couldn't see any lines.
Honestly, I have never been so scared in my entire life.
We pulled off the road, got gas, pull-ups (for me, ha, needed them at that point), water, and a hotel room.
Oh, and Play Doh.
...Some were a little more thrilled than I was.
Three Marines stood with Charlie in the lobby while I unloaded the car and Clara. They were showing him their swords (they had just come from a wedding). I walked up to hear him saying to them, "I got a sword like dat."
It was one of those times when you realized it might actually be a good thing that you generally have at least five full meals somewhere in your car.
It looks comfy.
It was an early morning wake up call with some cartoons in bed, Starbucks, and then home. Luckily we are all cuddled in safely for tonight's storm.
