It’s been a couple of weeks since my turn and burn trip to DC for my grandpa’s 100th birthday memorial celebration. I feel like I haven’t been in the car enough lately so I’m driving out to Rochester today for a few days. I’m hoping to get in a trip to Wegmans while I’m there to hit up the hot bar and get some snacks.
It’s not quite a turn and burn, but it’s close. (I’ll be there for a little over 51 hours if all goes well.)
Although the trip is for work, I have to spring for this myself because the reason I’m coming back early is for N’s birthday!
It’s not a Carnival like last year, but we managed a few ideas we think she’ll really love (like a Sorting Hat, a dream catcher, and something new for her wall that I made myself with a little help from the internet!) I also tried to make wands, but I think the clay is NOT going to cooperate. If not, I’ll remake them some other time.
I can only do so much when I lose 3 days to Rochester! I’m learning to accept that I might actually have limitations and require some sleep, occasionally.
Next weekend, I’m headed to Buffalo for a baby shower to welcome Tex into the world and family. While I haven’t decided if I’m staying over yet, that’ll be a quick trip regardless of if I stay or not.
(Of course, I’m hoping to get to Wegmans then too, but we’ll have to see how I feel about the drive home. The kids hope I go to Paula’s for donuts. Sigh, I miss donuts.)
Even though it’s a lot of driving, the car is surely better than the bus. I have the added bonus of one of my coworkers riding out with me. She’s pretty fab so it will be a good trip. Speaking of which, she just pulled in to meet me so I’m off to get back on the road.
After next weekend though, I’m taking a break from the road trips and Nik is driving everywhere for awhile.
