Sisterly Road Trippin

AC's post this morning inspired me! A few summers ago, Amanda was interning in Phoenix (where she now works). Katie and I flew out to drive back with her and we had many random adventures along the way. What is it about road trips with the sists that is so entertaining?

Amanda and I decided that it would be fun to have her teensie Chihuahua, Maggie, with us. So I Paris Hiltoned it out to Phoenix!

Then Amanda and I headed for the Grand Canyon- which is pretty much the most amazing place on earth.

So, here's where it gets interesing. Katie arrives, we do some hiking and hit Wally World for some major stocking up for the 24 hour drive. We get back out to Amanda's car... in the 110 degree heat... get our groceries unloaded, and the truck won't start because it decides we're stealing it. So we reload the groceries, go back into WalMart, call a cab, go back to the house, borrow the 85 year old neighbor's massive Buick, drive back to WalMart (lose some bananas along the way), have the truck towed and fixed.... eventually get home and load the truck and then hit the road at 5am the next morning all the while toting around a 4 pound Chihuahua.

Eventually we made it to Louisiana where Katie proceeded to pass out on Granny's carpet (which apparently smelled of cookies???) and then on home to P'cola. I can't tell you a lot about the drive because I basically sleep through road trips. But it went pretty easily after Amanda's truck learned we were not actually trying to steal it.

  2. I SWEAR the carpet smelled like cookies!!!

Playing with and keeping up with my nephew and niece take up a lot of my time. Van Geaux takes up the rest of it. Work is an afterthought most days! I like to be outside- but not when it's too hot. I get bored at my desk all day. Niki keeps my world spinning and without her and AC I'd lose it. My work ethic crashes at 4 p.m. daily and I live my sweet puppy and my hedgehog whenever I am not at Niki's. I truly believe naps are quality pass-time events, and sometimes I say bad words at work. I'm pretty sure I'm insane on multiple levels and I believe rules don't apply to me.
It seems that my life is quite entertaining. I didn't realize this myself, but was informed of it by my friends- who are rather entertained by tales of my life occurrences.

I'm far from a professional writer. These are just stories, comments, and other items for simple amusement. Hopefully it's a fun read, as Shannon plans to edit it into a book one day! Maybe we'll become famous, and maybe we'll just have some good laughs at my expense (and some other characters in my life). Either way, happy reading!
