I do NOT want to go away again!!

We were supposed to leave early this morning for Ontario. We're leaving tomorrow instead.

I don't want to travel again. I know, such a first world problem!

I am TIRED. 2 weeks on the road has exhausted me. Taking 3 days to get home has left me weary. I do not want to go anywhere. I don't even want to put in my contacts.

But it's time with John's very elderly parents that cannot be put off to another day. She's 85, he's 95. And I love them, so I guess 16 hours in a van with 3 boys will be the price I pay for time with his parents.

But if they weren't going to be there? I'd go on strike. Just like a spoiled twit. Well, not "just like" a spoiled twit. I'd BE the spoiled twit with whom all other regular twits are compared.

Ohhhh. Wait. There's an antique market there...Hmmmm.

And I can take my notes and work on my query while at the beach.

Not so bad afterall.


  1. If it's any comfort, you're not alone in getting fed up with travel right quick! I once spent a week...Austin to Fort Wayne to Austin to Bozeman to Austin to San Francisco and finally back. I had a couple hours in Austin between 'trips', not long enough to go home. I kept changes of clothing in my car. I don't miss it.

    Until it's time to go to Chicago for my interview with Oprah...

  2. You can do it!

    Remember the Little Engine that Could?

    I think I can! I think I can! I think I can!

    Up and over....

    I thought I could! I thought I could! I thought I could!

  3. Ha--you're not going all diva on me, are you? (my post today was about diva wives/moms). Seriously, I know, you've been a traveling fiend lately. But it's good that you have something to look forward to once you get there!
