I am a little bummed that our summer didn’t include any out of town trips this year. I can’t even remember if we traveled last summer.. which kinda makes me even more bitter for Erynne (okay, fine.. I’m bitter for myself, really). But that’s life. We have a few things coming up in our lives that have to take priority and some big ticket items that come with it so I guess we have to play that responsible game that adults do. Bleeeh.
On a happier note, my cousin A and his family from Alaska are currently on a road trip. Yes, I wanted us to join but hubby wasn’t able to get the time off on such short notice. Unfortunately, I got a text from them the other day that they had to stop a little longer in Los Angeles because their Ford Explorer unexpectedly broke down on their way to San Diego. They are all okay — including my 4 nieces and nephews. Good thing we have family nearby because our other cousin M was able to help them find a Los Angeles auto repair shop right away. Turns out there was a problem with the head gasket.
As I type this, they are on their way to Legoland. I hope they surprise us with a visit. Wishful thinking!
