I was writing what was turning into a cry fest post for me so I saved that and am doing this instead. Frank and I are headed to Chicago this weekend to visit family and have adult coffee/beverages while we watch the parade.
(I’m also pulling for a strawberry milkshake with sugar cookies on the straw like we got last time.)
Did I mention we’re driving? We’re getting in the Little Nissan that Could and heading west for the weekend. Yeah. I’m fidgeting as I type this and I just got up, refilled my drink, and wandered around 20 min ago. If you’re not familiar, it’s about a 13 hour drive. You can see how this might end up.
To combat The Fidgets and be less annoying to Frank I have to bring stuff for me to do in the car. Yes this is much like you would do for a small child. What can I say? I bring a book, my tablet (games and books loaded), my laptop (sometimes) a billion and four crochet projects, my music, etc.
I want to get the following done in the car this weekend:
- Reading. I haven’t been doing it when it’s scheduled (Although for the most part the schedule thing is actually going pretty well when I stick by it!) Although I don’t have anything to read currently for Red Letter Reads, the Bill Bryson book I started is pretty interesting so far.
- My To-Do list pertaining to blogging schedules, design/layout etc both for this and the Court is Crafty space and shop
bazillionhats, scarves, and baby sweaters I currently have started that need to be finished.
I know it seems like a lot, but it’s a lot of time in the car! So what do you do in the car on long trips?
