We survived the 26 hours on the road! We left Monday morning around 7am, and made it to Nashville by 9pm. It turns out that with a trailer, 3 kids, and lots of potty brakes, 10 hours turns into 14. Luckily we enjoyed the benefits of 2 DVD players. Both of them were set up in the Jeep, with 2 kids watching 2 different movies. Then, the 3rd kids, was in Ruthie's car, which was following us. Ruth's car was the napping/chatting car. It gave the kids a brake from each other, and me too I guess. It wasn't until the last 15 minutes of the trip, last night, that I truly realized how lucky we were to have those DVD players. The kids just started bickering, asking millions of questions, and overall being very annoying.

After the kids went to bed, we stayed up chatting, and pulled out the Wii. I have always been fascinated with the Wii, but have never actually played it. I have repeatedly tried to convince Joe to let me buy one, and get the Wii fit attachment. After even just playing boxing, golf, and tennis, I can see I can get plenty of exercise in with just the regular games. Then, just imagine how buff and awesome I would look if I could do Wii fit.

This morning we unloaded the trailer at the storage unit, and now the kids are split up in various rooms, so we can have a little peace and downtime. Sterling is sleeping in his little "nest" in the laundry room with his flashlight, he's happy as a clam!
