Safe and Sound

Day two of driving was excellent, if not downright boring.  At one point I pulled up Bill Cosby and Jim Gaffigan because I knew that laughs would keep me more alert than just my normal "Monroe Weekend" play list on the iPod.  I will admit it was pretty fun when my Father in Law was jamming with me to Under the Bridge by the Red Hot Chili Peppers!  He complimented me on my generous mix of all sorts of music on the play list, which was nice.

Sever folks have asked how Abby did in the car - she did REALLY great.  She's a trooper.  She's a great car traveler.  Nana brought several treats - new books or stickers - and we had pulled some of her old-but-good toys into the mix so that she got to be excited by the "new" find all over again!  During the two days of traveling she only had one breakdown, and one potty "emergency" on the road - but it was even more luckily something that she was able to warn us about, so we managed to get pulled over off of the highway and got her on to her pink potty with success!  She's such a big girl - the best!

We did manage to have breakfast, lunch AND dinner at Cracker Barrel, which means Anny got what she wanted.  I highly suggest you look at their summer breakfast meals, it's a much lighter and filling and YUMMY! 
I was proud of my car - this is the first time that I know it has been out of the greater DC/Ocean City circuit, and it did really well.  I can not speak too highly of the folks at Johnny's Auto Service - they really like to bust my chops, but they keep the cars in tip top shape. I don't think I have put that much gas into my car in four months of combined driving!

All of our stuff from the car is just stuffed in our room, we will sort tomorrow at some point.  Tomorrow our plans also include setting up a PO Box, getting new cell numbers and just playing with the girls together.  I can't wait.  I have a job interview on Thursday afternoon, so please keep me in your prayers.
