Well, we made it home in one piece. The first couple of hours of the trip were uneventful, but then the snow and ice started to fly! The driving conditions were horrible! I decided we should take a safety break and let the road crews have a chance to salt and plow. Well wouldn't you know, there just happened to be a J. Crew Outlet in the area! What a coincidence!! It was the perfect place to wait out the storm and I felt it was my duty as a responsible mother to pull off the road AND SHOP! The selection really got me psyched for spring. Lots of cute capris and flip flops. I picked up a kelly green hoodie and an adorable tote. (How's that for making lemonade when life hands you lemons?)
After I finished checking out every last article of clothing in the store I felt it was safe to get back on the road. So we climbed back in the minivan to brave the last leg of our journey. I think my favorite part of the trip, next to my daughters hitting each other in the back seat, was when some dude in a Dodge Daytona rode my bumper for about 2 miles in icy conditions with almost no visibilty! That really made my trip. The man was just BEGGING for a 10 car pileup.
So here I am, back in my nice little house, with my nice little laptop, sitting on my nice little couch. Safe from tailgating psychos and 18 wheelers traveling 80 mph. It really is true, "there's no place like home!'
