Take a Chill Pill! We're In for a LONG RIDE!

So, it looks like we're heading to Tennessee for the weekend. Not exactly right around the corner for us. In fact, it is estimated to be a NINE hour drive. Marc's dad is here from Japan and we're going to make the trip to meet them.

We made a six hour trip with the two kids in May, which turned into ten hours. It was a nice drive and we did stop A LOT. We'll have limited time so, we'll be trying to hurry this time.

How to keep poor Syd busy in the car is my next project. I think I am going to hit the library and pick up a ton of books. Our portable dvd player was on the fritz during the last trip so, I hope it stays in check. I'm sure we'll have to bring crayons and stickers too.

On another note, I'm almost finished with Randy Pausch's 'The Last Lecture.' If you don't know the background, you should definitely Google him. His book was a quick read and very inspirational. Sadly, Professor Pausch died last week of pancreatic cancer. My sympathy goes out to his family and friends.

Safe travels - have FUN! I need to read that book, I was so impressed by his speech (I watched it on Youtube). What a legacy!
