We drove back last night. We left Saturday afternoon and arrived at the crack of dawn this morning. It was a long drive, but the roads were almost completely empty. During parts of the journey it felt as if we were the only people in existence, driving down deserted road ways. (not to sound self-absorbed or anything).
More Info on the El Camino: Curtis’s dad arranged to have the el camino (who weve appropriately named ‘Demon’) motor replaced. Thats why its a frightening experience to drive it. Its a V8 350. Its now our permanent car – no more rental car.
Curtis’s brother has the most beautiful kids I’ve ever seen. Before we left town yesterday we stopped in to see them one more time, and get some chili on the belly for the long drive ahead. It was so much fun to run around and play with them. But again, glad its not my 24/8 job just yet.
While its always hard to say good-bye to family, it feels good to be home. I don’t want to do anything. It seems like you’re always so busy during the holidays that you forget to take downtime to just relax and not think about anything.
