We made it home from Bryan yesterday around 1:00. It took a little effort for us to get the kids up and the car packed and all of us out the door and into the car by 10:00 a.m., but we managed it. Although I think I was still half-asleep until we were about thirty minutes into the trip.
Which wouldn’t be a bad thing unless you consider the fact that I was driving.
Of course the only problem with getting home so early was that there were still so many hours left until happy hour and Gulley and I could have used a glass or a bottle of wine after a three hour drive with the kids. Forty-five minutes of which may have involved a burping contest.
But I spent the afternoon doing laundry and unpacking suitcases and making a grocery list. And then I actually went to the grocery store and the whole experience was slightly more pleasant than ramming my head into a brick wall.
Now I’m home with my people. And we’re going to spend the next few days staying up late and watching movies and eating too many carbs and just generally enjoying life.
I hope y’all will be doing the same.
I am so thankful that you take the time to stop by here and wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving!
Oh, and I wrote a post about my favorite Thanksgiving T.V. moments over on Ree’s blog if you want to check it out.
