Sunday around midnight we were on the road. I'm so glad I tossed a warm jacket in the back seat. It was 41 degrees when we left- cold!
We didn't have a problem going through the city but did hit some traffic in Washington. Once we were past DC, traffic was light all the way to Lake City.
Overnight was in Florence, South Carolina. We always stay at the Red Roof Inn. The place is clean and accepts dogs plus the fact there is a Olive Garden across the street. Gabe loves Olive Garden. It's about the only time he gets to enjoy pasta, since he doesn't get much pasta at home.
We drove for 14 hours and we were tired. As we waited for our meal a lady who had eaten stopped by our table. Remember Troll Dolls? The lady had hair just like one of the dolls. She zoomed in on me and started talking to me like we were buddies. At one point she said " I'm having a bad hair day" and I thought- honey you sure are!
After she left Gabe said that I sure do attract them. I said it was because I'm just sweeter then sweet tea which made him laugh so hard he had tears rolling down his cheeks.
Arrived at the house around 10 and then the unpacking began. The back of the truck was packed solid.We had the crate in the back seat for the little prince with his bone to snack on. Max made himself very comfortable. He pushed the blankets in the crate to the front of the crate to make a "pillow". The only thing he was upset about was when Gabe told him he had his last bite of a NY bagel.
Once we were unpacked we needed to run to the grocery store to pick up a few things and then home to see Leda.
I surprised her. I told her we were coming in on Wednesday. She looks good and I was lucky because Ted and Marie came to visit. I'm so lucky to have such wonderful people in my life.
Gabe was been drooling for wings so we went out and he got to have his hot wings. His reward for getting us here safely.
