I Am DOG Tired!

Well it's time to head home this morning from our Summer Road Trip of 2013.
I have come to the conclusion that despite having a real nice time out on the road for 10 days and traveling over 2,100 miles, I am dog tired and worn out and ready to get home and sleep in my own bed.

I guess that means I have turned into an old stick-in-the-mud at the ripe old age of 54.
I ache from sitting for hours in a car some days and ache from walking until I could drop other days.
After 10 days I yearn for my normal routine and food that doesn't come out of a restaurant.
Yah I know that means I have to COOK again but I am ready to ease back into the kitchen.....I think. ;-)

And I know Sonya Ann will fall outta her chair but I am ready to not drink for awhile.  I just am not cut out to be an alcoholic...... lol

I didn't take any videos Wednesday(yes, some of you have had your prayers answered!)so I have nothing new to post from yesterday.  I did however take 280, count 'em 280! still photos yesterday.  Mostly those shots are of headstones or pages from genealogy books so of no interest to but a few who read this blog.

So I'll leave you with a short film I took on Tuesday in Wytheville, VA from where we stopped for a late, quick lunch before blowing that town.

This will be my last post for a day or so as we head home and then I dig out from a mammoth pile of dirty laundry once we get to the old homestead.

Talk to y'all next week, if not a bit sooner over the weekend,

Sluggy

  1. I'm hungry and could eat that for breakfast! I think the best updates will be how the kids fared while you were gone. The parent's of the Beach Boys left them home with $100 to eat on for a weekend. They cut a record instead.

  3. I love to go away but I love to come home. I love my bed. So I can appreciate your feelings. I have told you once before you were not at Sonya Ann's...

  4. You went to Skeeter's!!!!! YAY!!!!!

    I know how you feel. Some years ago, I went on a 3700 mile road trip to Oregon and back, over a month with 6 (5, 4, 3, 2, 1) friends (various folks dropped out over the course of the travels). So yeah, your own bed, your own food, I get it! Glad you had a wonderful trip!

    Peace <3

    1. Skeeter's, then Carter's Brews next door(it's only been there about 5 months). It's great to get off the highway and do and see things in little towns, isn't it?

      We'll be back in VA the end of September probably for a Family Reunion.

    1. Hey, go for any old age perk you can get is my motto...everything about getting old doesn't have to be a downer, right? lol

      I turn 55 in Jan....Hubs turned this year like you will. Do I have to call you ma'am now since you are older than me? ;-)

  6. Dang--wish I had known y'all would be that close to me--I would have loved to meet you!! Wytheville isn't so far from me--I go through there when I go to TN to see my dad. Hope you can get some rest now that you are home. Take care.

    1. Well I shouldn't tell you this but we were also IN TN outside of Nashville. lol
      Maybe next time we get down and over that way?
      We are going to be back in VA next month but over in Charlotte County, south central part of the state, not along the western backbone.
