Well, we have gone to SLC to stay in our lovely condo (G&G Ross' home) once again. I feel like we have done this before!
I am definately not a very fun traveling Mom. I just want to BE THERE. I need to enjoy the journey. Unfortunately I feel like the journey is often "Don't touch me" "That's MINE!" "I want to sit there" "How much further?" Etc. Etc. I think the trips would go much smoother if I planned activities or had maps or whatever. Any great ideas for a Mom that feels like she is just lucky to get all 5 kids in the car before she pulls away (I realized Jackson had no shoes in Cortez)?!
I think I need personal space sometimes. When we drive in the truck (which we did this trip) there is always a kid in the spot where I would enjoy an armrest and a drink holder! :) I get tired in the afternoon and do the Dr. Pepper/Sunflower Seed combo (only good while driving).
Listen to me go on! I should be grateful I don't
have to come to this valley by handcart. Do you think their kids fought in the back seat of the covered wagon?
Enjoy the journey, Enjoy the journey, Enjoy the journey... :)
