I Wanna Know That You'll Tell Me, I Love to Stay

Friday night, still running a fever, I packed the family up in the van for a quick jaunt to Arkansas.

Of course, I use the term "quick" very loosely as it took six hours to get there and apparently Arkansas doesn't have proper highways. Oh, and they have hills mountains. Lots and lots of mountains.

It was a big family celebration of sorts. Aaron's [step]father found his birth mother last year and everyone managed to pack up and go meet her.

It was lovely

Unfortunately, we only got to stay for one full day. We packed up Sunday afternoon, decided fuck that and hung around until the early evening hours, arriving home early this morning.

So if you hear any moaning, that's me aching. Or if you hear and thumping, that's me walking into the walls. I need some more sleep.

We were supposed to go to Arkansas last weekend, too! It got postponed until this coming weekend though. Yes, it is pretty hilly there. Great for the carsick-prone (like me).

You are a brave woman...I hate traveling when I'm sick. Then again, I can't think of many fun things I like to do when I'm sick...unless you count sleep. But, I'm so tired that sleep is usually a fun activity any time! Feel better soon.

I love the photo! What a gorgeous area to visit. I've only been to Arkansas once. Texarkana, my friend lived there. It was pretty nice in the country though.
