While I wouldn't call the last three days eventful, they have reinforced my belief that in the Husband Lottery, I have won the Big Prize. We drove from Tulsa to Southern California to be with our kids for Christmas. I say "we", but I never drove at all - not for any of the over 20 hours it takes to get from there to here. We spent the night in Galllup, New Mexico, and much as I love the food, choose to eat at a chain restaurant, because you can't risk getting bad food when you are on the road. Long story made short, I woke up yesterday morning, for what the Mayans want us to believe was to be one of the last days of earth, with 6 inches of new snow and raging food poisoning. He ran over to the Walmart, bought some tire chains, gloves, and Pepto Bismal, and drove the rest of the way, with me throwing up occasionally - all the while being sweetly attentive and trying to entertain me to relieve some of my misery. Driving through a snow storm. What a guy!!
So instead of going to Disneyland today, I'm just resting and making a comprehensive list of food stuffs to bring back from Trader Joe's, my favorite natural food market, which doesn't exist in Oklahoma.
