Did you know that the farthest I have ever driven by myself is maybe 2 hours?! It's true. Well I crushed that old record on Friday when I went to visit my dear friend Michelle in North Carolina! I got up at 5:15 am, dropped Sommer off at seminary and started my drive.
I must say I was amazed how quickly it actualy went. I asked a few people what in the heck I was supposed to do for 7 hours. I mean, I only have so many thoughts and who wants a one sided conversation?!
I was thrilled with lovely phone calls from friends while I drove.
I was thrilled with the book on tape I had.
I was thrilled to sing along with the radio.
We had a great visit! We were able to sit in Michelle's backyard and visit in the 75 degree fall weather while Chase played. We went to our favorite restaurants, watched a movie, chatted all night long...it was so lovely.
And then it was time to drive again.
It wasn't bad at all.
I think Garth and I have a future retirement plan now...driving (did I actually say that)!
