Friday Five: Traveling

Amy's Friday Five: This is where I share with you five things I learned this week because there is always something to be learned. In the process you might just learn a little something about me.

*sorry this is late - I am having some technical difficulties. I just learned my mama needs a new computer!
We made it. Woooohooooo! The princesses and I FINALLY made it to our destination. It was extraordinarily longer than the usual trip to the beautiful state of Montana due to vehicular problems I seriously think that next time we will be flying and that is saying a whole lot because I.AM.SCARED.TO.FLY! Seriously scared!

Anyhow, this is what I learned this week (well some of what I learned - otherwise this would be an incredibly long post!)

1. When I am already overdue for a much needed break from the kiddos (some serious mommy time was already needed) it is not a good idea to jump in the car with them for 8 hours a day for 4 days. Not- a -good idea.

2. Never travel on Sundays. Because if something were to happen like let's say a flat tire- NOTHING is open.

3. Just when you think nothing more can happen - it does. Along with this I learned that the Law of Attraction is viable. I was negative at the beginning of this trip, not real excited, and day after day it got worse. When I finally gave in and thought - I have to do this , I am here, just deal, at least we are all together and the girls are spending time with there Grammy- it got better. Change your outlook and everything gets better!

4. This is a beautiful sight/feeling! LOVE IT!

5. Watching billboards is quite entertaining. Utah has some interesting ones. I particularly loved, GOT SNOT? As a matter of fact, yes I do! I hope to snap some pictures on the way home to show you all. There was some funny ones.

Well there you have it - some of the things I learned this week. If you learned something please be sure to let us know. Leave us a comment. Have a fantastic fun filled weekend.

AMY - no cute sig today. I can't seem to get it to work.

I learned that my husband was crazy to put a jug of milk on the top shelf of the fridge and it came falling down. I just watched and gave towels. I did say that is not the right place to put it either.

The soy milk is a gross brown.

Going to the DMV is not that bad either.

Have a great trip Amy..

And you wanted ME to bring my two crazy ankle bitters and come WITH you on this trip???!!! Actually...I do have snot, Wild Woman wipes her nose on me all the time (nasty little girl).

I learned that it's hard keeping a blog up to date all by MYSELF (yes, I'm a big baby). Yeah...glad I have a partner.

Sleeping babies on a road trip. Sigh. Bliss.

I can't wait to see the billboards, it's my 2nd most favorite thing to look at on a road trip, besides people watching when your stuck in traffic. It's unbelievable what people do in the car while driving. it's really entertaining.

I was checking in to see iff you made it safely! I am so happy that you all are there. Enjoy your time and get some rest!

What was the Got Snot Billboard advertising? hmmmm!

Kristin said...

Bless you. I did 10 hours with the dude to GA and it was not pretty. I learned that although there are petty liars out there, they can't steal your happiness. Happy Friday!

Ok then I guess I am put in my place for complaining about being in a car for a few hours with my kids! 8 hours a day for 4 days...Im pretty sure I would be insane...well at least more insane

Erin said...

Love snot...especially when it is wiped from older child and there is a big long string of it from his nose to this hand to mommy's hand and him going YUCK YUCK YUCK!

Mama Nut said...

Glad you got there! Sounds like an adventure!!

Muthering Heights and Other Senseless Sensibility said...

It still sounds like a fun trip!

I learned a lot this week, but you knew that! ;)

I've always wanted to go to Montana. I hear it's beautiful. It has to be cooler than Texas right now, right ??!!

Stacey said...

I have never EVER been lucky enough to have all three boys sleep in the car at the same time.

You shouldn't be afraid to fly, considering the odds must have been a kajillion to one that you would know anyone who was *un*lucky enough to have a tree fall on their Suburban- since that has already happened, I think you're in the clear!

Marina said...

ahhhhh bliss...3 sleeping princesses!!

Happy Saturday Sharefest ;>
