Gahhh I have just survived the car trip from hell!
Normally, the trip from Tampa to Vero Beach takes roughly 2 1/2 hours. This afternoon, however, it took a lovely 4 hours and 45 minutes!!!!!!! Right around the halfway point there was a huge wreck and we all just SAT for 2 hours. People were outside of their cars, milling around and some were even peeing on the side of the road. I didn’t have any cell phone service where we were (in the middle of nowhere) so I just sat and zoned out for hours. It was horrible.
Good thing I had a great snack before I left—a banana with a tbsp of almond butter:
I was having issues eating it though apparently and Ryan thought it was funny to snap a whole slideshow of pictures of the experience. I almost choked on my banana.
I’m so silly. I know. Anyways, while I was stranded in the car I ate the dinner of champions—-
Not exactly what I wanted for dinner tonight but it was all I could do in the situation. I really liked the pumpkin flavor though! I have to say now that I have tried all the seasonal flavors that the maple nut is my favorite and the pear apple strudel comes in second. This and the gingerbread tie as third. J
When I finally made it home I snacked on 1/3 cup Ezekiel cinnamon raisin cereal with silk, heated up in the micro for a minute and topped with cinnamon and agave.
Well, it’s time to get ready for another week! I was hoping to get some more stuff done this afternoon (grocery shopping and laundry) but it’ll all have to wait until tomorrow I guess. Right now it’s time for a bath, reading and bed. I hope everyone had a fabulous holiday weekend and now its time to get ready for Christmas!!!!!! =) I’m pretty much obsessed with Christmas music and listened to it for about the whole 5 hour car ride today.
Have a great night!
