For the first time in years, I had a long road trip with my family yesterday. With my dad at the wheel, it took us 3 hours each way to get to Metamora, IL and home again. That's 6 hours of sharing the backseat of a pickup with my grandmother, enjoying the beautiful scenery of Illinois.
Thank you iPod shuffle and travel pillow.
PS: I love my grandma. She is a wonderful woman, and makes fantastic Rice Krispie Squares, of which I have eaten about 10 in the past 2 days. Just sayin.'
PPS: I need to find some covers for my ear buds for long trips such as this one. The ears were a bit sore today.
