Thursday Three – Projects I want to do in the car this weekend

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:

  1. 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.
  2. My To-Do list pertaining to blogging schedules, design/layout etc both for this and the Court is Crafty space and shop
  3. The bazillion hats, 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?

About Court

I spend a lot of time on the pool deck and making treats in my kitchen amongst other things.

    The only times I’ve been in the car that long, I spent at least part of the time driving myself. The rest of the time I spent picking up toys from the floor in the backseat, handing people tissues, taking devices from the backseat and plugging them in to charge, handing people drinks and snacks, playing on my phone, arguing with the GPS device, and then threatening to throw the GPS device out the window if the driver doesn’t make it stop talking.

    It’s my hope I’m never in the car this long again. The Wright Brothers went to a lot of trouble to invent the airplane, and I feel like I owe it to them.

  2. I have to be busy in the car too. I always have my kiddle or iphone.

  3. So what do you do in the car on long trips?

    Hmm — Well It’s been a while since I was on a Road Trip of any kind. But, I like windows down, music up, and singing along. Oh, and sleeping!
