I’m two hours away from attempting the nearly unthinkable: taking a six hour road trip with all three kids…alone.
Andrew left on a business trip yesterday. I’m heading down to San Diego in a few days to do some book promotional work. In between now and Wednesday, I need to get my children to their grandparents’ house, where they will enjoy a week at “Camp Nana and Poppa’s” (and I will enjoy a week…all the while missing my ruffians…of book signings, book club gatherings, cocktails parties, long workouts and more).
So I spent an hour and a half last night strategically packing the car…mostly with toys, coloring books, snacks and books that will hopefully keep the kids occupied for several hours at a time. I even borrowed a friend’s DVD player to use in the event that things become really desperate.
And yes, I remembered to throw my James Blunt and Goo Goo Dolls CDs in for me!
So, please send us good vibes for safe travels…and I’ll keep you posted on how San Diego goes!
