ROAD TRIP

hood up broken down

It was supposed to be fun. Visiting the Great nephews and great niece, their parents and grandparents. Belated Christmas and the little guy’s third birthday. And it was, until…

I try to explain to The Child Bride, cars are machines. Very complicated machines. And they sometimes break. But you’d think that they’d break where you spend 99% of your time, at home. But nooooooo.

So here we sit and wait. 800 miles from home and 600 miles from the southern winter writing retreat. Waiting for the phone call from the repair shop, a rental car in the driveway of a kind relative’s home. But it’s warm and there’s food in the fridge. We’re safe, for now, and when the machine is fixed, on we go. It’s supposed to be fun, remember?
