That's minus 13.8 Celsius. The dogs didn't stay out for very long this morning, ha. The space heater is humming, and I am glad for my new slippers. I have socks on too, and my feet are still not warm and toasty. My coffee cup is full of piping hot pumpkin spice coffee, I'm wearing velour sweat pants, and my warmest wool sweater, from the thrift store, of course. We haven't started school yet because I let the girls have their cousin overnight, and they are way too busy playing already. I figure they aren't parked in front of the t.v., so we're okay.
Mirielle and I are really going to do it, we're driving across the whole U. S. of A.! She thinks we can do it in three days...we are leaving directly after she works a 12 hour night shift at the hospital, so she will be sleeping in the car while I navigate and drive...15 hours. I think that's too aggressive for the first day...if I drink enough coffee to drive that long so she can sleep, I'll have to stop every four hours to go to the bathroom. On paper, it's doable...15 hours to Des Moines Iowa, then 15 to Salt Lake City, then 8 to Reno, then on day four, the last few hours to San Francisco. But leaving at 8 a.m. + 15 hours plus a few stops, that puts you at at least 2 a.m. the first day. If the next day was ALSO 15 hours...leaving at 7 a.m., driving until 11 or midnight with stops...ugh. I don't know. I think we should pace ourselves more...but we'll see.
We're leaving next Sunday. I would take a third driver but his car is filled with good stuff that he needs:)
Ah well. Things to do, kids to parent:)
