On the Road (Day 1)
Being trapped inside a moving vehicle for thirteen hours is awful. My new camera kept me entertained temporarily, but I was going absolutely nutters (another word I've added to my verbal dictionary thanks to HP). Click the link below the picture to view a timeline of the first part of our exhausting road trip back home.
0637: Fill up the tank at only $3.06/gallon
0650: Take 30 minutes to finish one Clif bar for breakfast
0730: Catch Bella peeking at us
0738: Cross the Colorado River. Apparently there's more than one?
0750: Bella enjoys the view
0803: Harry Potter audiobooks keep us entertained
0820: Potty break. Strangers taunt Bella through the windows and make her bark
0910: Lunch? Disgusting Lunchables for me. Beef jerky and squeezable apple sauce for Hubby
1030: We realize that Bella's bed is completely in the sun
1055: Fill up the tank again at $3.39/gallon. We move Bella to a more shaded position
1126: We hear Bella snore. I grow extremely jealous of Bella's ability to sleep through the entire car ride
1354: There are no helmet laws in TX. Hubby tells me to put my camera away. "They're a real gang, you know."
1446: Fill up the tank again right before we hit El Paso. Hubby tries to get Bella to go potty. Bella says, "Screw you! I ain't peeing on no rocks."
1516: Finally out of Texas!
1620: We both go crazy after about ten hours in the car and start howling.
1621: Bella doesn't care
1653: New Mexico is a really small state
1654: I realize that it's actually 1554 because of the time change. The one hour I thought we had left in the car really turns into two.
1700 (really): I make a cocoon for myself to shield myself from the hot sun
1720: In N Out! I copied Hubby and got my burger protein style, which means no toasted buns. NEVER AGAIN. The lettuce on my burger wasn't wrapped properly so I was just holding a cheesy meat patty in my hand. I threw it down dramatically and yelled, "This is ridiculous! I can't eat this!" I get really crabby when I'm hungry...
1840: Cuddle time
