Travel Notes to Self

What worked:

• Cherries, strawberries, and grapes for car snacks, packed in a rigid plastic container.

• Thrifted pillowcases for everyone to use as pillow covers in the car. At night, fold up and stuff inside real pillowcases. Still satisfying those yellow-brown-avocado green cravings!

• An inexpensive hotel suite instead of two rooms.

• A new baby sweater to knit in the car.

What didn't work:

• Washing the laundry with Cascade all week in the condo washing machine. Next time, I'll label the dishwashing powder as *well* as the laundry detergent. Hey, at least we didn't have streaks!

• Scheduling a hair appointment for Bella and a photo shoot for Giles the morning after returning.

Four pluses, to two negatives? A great trip.

Glad you're back. Were you missing the green of the east? Oh, did anyone tell you, "well, at least it is dry heat". Yay, so is FIRE! ;)

I like your travel tips! We do fruits and veggies in the car too - though I never thought of cherries! We'd need to practice with those pits a bit more at home since I don't relish juicy disasters on the road. Perhaps it will be better post braces! I am glad you had a good trip and are home safely!

Blessings!

I have been mulling over the possiblity of posting my own blog so I have been perusing others. Came across yours and it made me smile. Sounds like me a few years ago. Thanks for the excellent posts and trip down memory lane.
