We arrived at our destination of Richmond, KY around 8:30, and I’ve just unpacked my laptop now at 11 p.m.
It’s been quite an eventful day – we were late leaving this morning, had almost an hour sitting in traffic in Atlanta, and then almost to Tennessee line we had a warning light come on in Ted’s truck. We had to pull off the Interstate and track down someone who could test the electrical system (it was the battery light that was on). That’s not easy to do on a Saturday afternoon. All systems tested “ok”, so we got back on the road.
Then Maddie got car sick – three times. Stopped to wash out truck and do laundry in the McDonald’s restroom (she threw up on a baby blanket I always carry to wrap her up in). Imagine standing in front of the hand dryer in the restroom blowing dry a baby blanket you just washed in the sink.
Then it started raining. Then when we finally got to the motel, we had an issue with the room (long story-too tired to tell). Put the dogs back in the car, where they sat until we ate a burger, then back to motel – raining like crazy while we walked the dogs. Other than that, it’s been a really nice day on the road.
Thanks for the safe travel prayers – please lift more up tomorrow – and just for good measure, would you ask that we have a really BORING day on the road. Love ya’ll!
