Goodbye

We were supposed to leave at three. But three became three-thirty.  And then three-thirty became four. And now four has become four-thirty.  A day with family lies behind us.  An eight hour drive stretches out in front of us.

It’s time to go.  Past time, really.

The kids take their places in the back seat. I close the trunk and walk to my door, calling one last goodbye to my parents.  Shawn and I take our places in the front seats.

We back down the driveway, out into the street, and pull away. My parents wave from the front porch while we wave back to them.

And we are on our way.  Again.

A day with family lies behind us. An eight hour drive stretches out in front of us.

    A short post that has me thinking about what will the next 8 hours be spent thinking about?
    Long car ride, post family visit, sounds like a recipe for thought.
