Know what I hate? Feeling crummy.
Kinda feel that way now, just had a long day of driving. Tried to make it up north for another family reunion, this one was on my dad's side.
Problem was that the hubby didn't have the day off, he was going to ask for it off but somehow he has next Sunday off and not this Sunday. So, it was either leave him here or do all the driving myself while he slept.
We opted for the sleep and drive, though next time I may just leave him here because it is just too stressful to worry about getting back at a certain time, especially when it is a 2.5 hour drive.
And driving in silence is not fun - unless you are reading, which you can't do if you are the driver. So, Mrs. Chatty-in-the-Car had to be quiet and that got me all in a wide-eyed driving-forever trance that I just could not shake off. I mean the radio was on and all - but it is just weird making it a point not to talk to the person next to you because you know they need their sleep. I kept catching myself almost saying something every 20 minutes...sigh. :(
Then, of course, I was less than pleasurable to be around once we got there - in fact, my hubby and I were both quite sticks-in-the-mud. Sigh. I think knowing that we could only stay until 2:3oPM tops when we just arrived at 11:30 kinda made us all anxious, aloof and grumpy.
Felt like I let everyone down... :(
