For the past ten or so years, our extended family (parents, g-parents, siblings, etc.) live six hours away from us. Every year at Christmas, we spend a few days at one side of relatives, drive five hours Christmas day, and spend a few days at the other side. This year--we are only spending four nights out-of-state. Nonetheless, the travel routines are still in place.
Today's travel outfit is typical. I have on a pair of jeans over my running tights, three shirts/sweatshirts, socks, and running shoes. I'm thinking of breaking routine and also packing a blanket--my husband is very warm blooded; I'm a cold-blooded lizzard.
I also pack two "play-aways" from the library with the corresponding book. I listen to the recorded book on the mp3 player w/ headphones. If it's really good, I finish reading the hard copy when we get to our destination. I wanted the Girl w/ the Dragon Tattoo since I've started it; however, the library did not have it. Instead, I'll be enjoying Shutter Island. Let the driving begin!
