Part of the reason why I've been busy is that Daddy and I took a short trip to Texas to check on my grandparents. We had some great adventures. Like, we made it to Texas around 10 at night and stopped at rest area. Do you know how creepy rest areas are at night? There were also some creepy "baby monster" dogs in the parking lot. They were scary looking. Then, we stopped for the night on the other side of Houston. At a somewhat sketchy hotel (because we thought it was the best at the exit). Come to find out, there was a Holiday Inn Express across the street behind some trees. In addition, there was a train that came by every hour and blew its whistle/horn thing. Not cool. But, we survived and finished the drive to San Antonio the next day.
On the way home, we had even more adventures. Such as getting stuck in traffic for a bazillion hours. I'm convinced that Louisiana hates me. We were fine until we got to Louisiana. Then we got to Kinder, which wasn't very kind to us. Apparently there was a benzine spill on the interstate, so they were rerouting traffic onto back roads. Which is cool and all, but it backs up a bit when you are condensing 3 lanes into 1. And when you're in Cajun country. And when you really have to go potty, but you've been sitting in the same spot on the interstate for an hour and a half. And when you really want to get home. So we finally got out of that mess, but then we hit a few more spots of traffic (oh, Baton Rouge). I was sick and tired of being in the car. 15 hours is a long time! So, I went to sleep when we hit Mississippi and slept until we got to Montgomery. Home sweet home and that was my trip.
