So, we made it back. It was probably the worst trip back EVER because we got (a little) too many speeding tickets (we think). Well, Hubby did. One in the middle of TX for going 85 mph (PEOPLE THE SPEED LIMIT THERE IS 80) however, it was still dark out (being that it was 6am) and so he got a ticket because he should have been going 65 (night speed). OOPS! Then there was a camera set up in Tucson….I hate those stupid speed cameras. So, we can’t be sure, but it totally flashed. Oh well. It happens, but I think this trip got very expensive!
Anyways, besides that part and the long, boring drive we did have some good conversations….
Me: I hate driving! (Mind you I think on the way back I drove maybe an hour and a half out of 14 hours….. )
Me: Cause I see dead things. And it is probably not a good idea to close my eyes like I do everytime I see them.
On How much longer
Me: Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?
Hubby: I can pull this car over and you can walk!
On Speeding Tickets
Me: There goes our Christmas money. I think it may have been cheaper to fly!
Hubby: (DEAD SILENCE)
On the Best BBQ in Texas (Advice to Readers)
Me: If you ever see this place GO THERE!
On Small Towns in the Middle of West Texas
Hubby: Let’s stop there…at the one that says Travel Center
Me (slowing down..yea it was the one time I was driving) Oh yea, THIS looks like a nice travel center. (FYI…it was a run down shack with ONE pump) Kinda like this, but not exactly…
Hubby: After we fill up, want a tour of the town?
Me: I think I will pass.
On food in the car:
Hubby doesn’t like me to eat in the car, but I do it anyways.
Me: UH OH
Hubby(angry-like): Did you drop your pretzels?!
Me: uh oh
Hubby: You will pick that up!
Me: Ooops I think it fell somewhere out of reach…..
Coming soon…pictures of my pretzel art
Well, there you have it. Don’t you just feel like you were in the car with us?
We didn’t kill each other and we are still talking to each other, so all in all good times!
