First off I do have to give a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has visited the new web page for DIY Watermakers. The response this first week has been overwhelming (in a good way) and a lot of it has been coming from this blog’s readers. So, a big virtual hug for everyone reading this! And if we ever meet in person I’ll give you a cookie too.
Now, a cross country road trip could be boring for some. But with the hubby, the princess, and Bella the “diva cat” in the car it’s been pretty interesting. I am pleased to announce that Bella slept the entire first day. Sometimes sleeping so deep that I did the “mom” thing and tugged on some hair or an ear until she moved just to make sure she was still alive.
We have gotten to experience a seedy roadside motel where we stopped because it was beside the Waffle House we stopped at and we were both exhausted and it met our requirement of “had a deadbolt on the door and a bed we would both fit in”. I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have stayed there alone, but the only safety issue we encountered were the ninja ants that kept biting us in bed but then disappearing before we could find them. I knew it was ants because I saw a trail of them in the bathroom the next morning. Sneaky little bastards.
But it hasn’t been all possibly dead cats and seedy motels. We had a flat tire too! Not to worry, several southern gentlemen came to our rescue and helped us put a plug in and get along on our way. Even the gas station attendants had “southern” hospitality and charm. I don’t think I’ve ever had a more delightful roadside emergency experience!
The drive through the mountains has been beautiful and I can’t wait to experience the east coast.
