This week has been so stressful. Let's just start at Thursday, because everything before then was such a blur. The night before was filled with packing. Anything that was important to you went in a bag and placed in the van our grandparents let us borrow. By that time I had had all the bought CDs I couldn’t live without. So I was spending most of my time on cloths which were REALLY hard. |
Because cloths were such an enigma to me, I got some underwear, socks, the new shirts, some jeans, and my cargos. I figured that my bag could hold MUCH more that that, so I started to think about what DVDs I didn’t want to leave behind. I got all those in, and then helped my family with whatever they needed. After that I had to wait it out.
Thursday comes and we slept in. not badly, but enough for me to miss my shower. I felt I had to take one for the team in order to get things moving. Pluss I figured I could take one when we got to Davila.
We all met up at Terry and Vicki’s house. Vicki’s mother and sister were there waiting for us. That’s a first. No one really wanted them to go. …Our side, and even Vicki can only take her family in small doses. But we met up and then left to meet my grandparents, in their RV, and then we would get “the trainwrek a-rollin’.” We met up with my grandparents and just as we pulled up, my granddad had to go. He lost Cuddles. Their first dog. About 45 minutes later he comes back and cuddles is in the passenger seat, with her toung out wagging her tail.
So we get on the highway and everything is perfect for the first five minuets. And then BAM!!! Gridlock. The next 12 hours was HORRIBILE gridlock. From Houston to Magnolia. Because of gas and all we had to roll our windows down and suck on heat and carbon monoxide. And all the while we were listening to news. AND THEY WERE REAPEATING THE SAME THINGS OVER AND OVER. They just replaced some words for others. But around Tomball, and I remember it because it was right in front of the coffee place Cale and I played, I put in Rattle And Hum.
So we get to magnolia and we decide to set up camp in the high school. At the high school rather. I was really tired what will all the goings on I just took a nap and then ate a few hotdogs and fell to sleep. So I don’t remember much.
Next morning I had a cup of coffee, and we went out. We were headed for Davilla. Traffic was NOT bad at all. We flew compared to the day before.
We got there and it was too, too damn hot to do anything. But I did get my shower that I sacrificed on thursday
