The past two days have felt like ONE enormously long day –so that’s how we will account for it. 2 days in one 🙂
The drive to Florida was 16+ hours — smooth sailing, not aggressive like some trips in the past. The traffic wasn’t bad either — UNTIL we got to Florida. Jacksonville (or Jville as we call it 🙂 ) is undergoing long-term road construction and we hit it right at 545pm Friday night. N.I.C.E. is all that needs saying.
Then we hit the I-4 construction. Ah-hem, I’m corrected — the ULTIMATE I-4 construction project. Two lanes of traffic moving 5 miles per hour. Hey — that was my marathon pace. I could’ve kept up :0 That’s the bright side. When we made it past the 2+ hour delay, the flashing lights told the story of an 8-car crash. Horrible. I suppose our delay was really just an opportunity for us to open the windows and breathe in some fresh night air. In the grand scheme of life on Friday night…. we were lucky and blessed. Perspective is a teachable moment every single day.
Saturday was G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S! Tonight — we jumped in my mom’s pool with our clothes on. Hey — some things are just TOO GOOD to wait for! #ChooseHappiness365 (119 & 120/365) #FirstTimeForEverything
