Let me just start by saying, whoever thought that taking a road trip when your 8 months pregnant… wait, no. I should really start by saying how sweet it was that my hubby took the time to plan a little family getaway after the holidays. In all honesty, it was an awesome idea; one I would normally love if I weren’t 8 months pregnant with a God awful back problem. I knew this would be quite an adventure as it was, taking 2 toddlers and a psycho dog to the mountains. Now…Continue

My daughter and her friends think I have road rage. I don’t have road rage; it’s just that I frequently disagree with how others handle themselves on the road.

I’m a warrior, a road warrior. Well, among other things. Really. Just hear me out.

Hence, over the last few years this family has become a band of road warriors, trekking it across…Continue

The dictionary defines guilt as “a feeling of responsibility or remorse for some offense, crime, or wrong, whether real or imagined.” Real or imagined, that sounds about right. Might even be more accurate, at least helpful, if they added a footnote, “Warning: Duration of guilt known to last several years. Atonement not guaranteed.” Now that’s the kind of guilt I know. Come to think of it, I didn’t know there was another kind.
It’s taken me a while, but I’m fairly proud of…Continue

Do you have a GPS navigator in your car? I don’t because I’m a woman and I always know where I’m going. And if I don’t, I ask…or use a map. This ancient method has never failed me yet.
However, as a man, my husband is often lost. He refuses to ask for directions and the only map he has in his truck is a map of Texas, which really doesn’t help him when he is driving through South Dakota. So, it is probably a good thing he has GPS navigator in both of his…Continue

Travelling of any sort is always a crap shoot for me. Aside from the logistics of 4 kidlets, (although, with everyone out of “babyhood”, I have finally become adept enough at packing that I can leave behind the kitchen sink!), the Griswold moniker is well earned…I seem to encounter “adventures” that fall outside of the typical. Moreover, MY typical usually falls within…Continue
