In no particular order...these are some of the things I have learned over the last three weeks:
*If there is a rest stop in view...all of my kids will need to pee. Even if they just did 3 miles back. EVERY SINGLE TIME
*We grow an awful LOT of corn in this country
*No matter how appealing the side trip is...one of my kids will NOT want to go.
*Gas is cheaper in Mississippi that anywhere else. Period.
*The more rural theWal-Mart...the stranger the people inside.
*I prefer the company of my husband to just about everyone else on earth.
*Some things Never Ever Change. No matter how far between trips you wait.
*Texas is Damn HOT
*Whataburger is worth the drive the first time you have it when you have not had it in a long time. Not really so much the rest of the trip
*A full sized cooler will fit between the bucket seats in a Tahoe.
*The toys my son swore he had to have are just taking up space and ticking me off!
*It is worth the drive to Texas for my favorite hair salon, dentist, and doctor.
*Sunsets in Texas are prettier than anywhere ELSE on earth. I am pretty sure of it anyway!
*Tex Mex is also sooo worth the drive!
*Kids keep growing even when you move away and you WILL be shocked when the little girl you left is a young woman. Crazy. Seriously. Crazy
*No matter how much you want to stop at a remote grave yard along the way...the destination definitely out weighs that desire! Dang it.
I am SURE there are more revelations to come!
