We're Back !!! Found A Great Distraction !!!





Hey Ya'll,

Well we made it back from Reno easily today.  It was originally supposed to snow quite a bit today, but luckily it stopped shortly after we left.  At first they had chain restrictions on for anyone driving over the Sierra's, unless you were in a 4x4 or AWD with snow tires.  But they lifted the restriction about the time we got to the Summit so we were lucky, again!  We were expecting snow all the way back!!

However, I forgot to mention in my earlier post from Saturday, that I found a fantastic distraction for while we are driving the Sierra's.  I had brought my crochet bag with me so that I could do some crocheting if I got bored, but Walt had packed it in the back seat area of the truck!  But since we were in such horrible traffic on the way to Reno over the Sierra's.  Meaning that at that time, we were completely stopped (as in NOT MOVING)!!  I had made the comment that I wished I had my crochet bag up front with us. 

When I mentioned that I wished that I had thought to keep my crochet bag in the front with me.  Walt, bless his sweet heart, got out of the truck, opened the rear door & handed me my crochet bag!!  So I began making myself a hat!!  I just wish that I had thought of this years ago!!  Walt wishes this too!!  It was the most relaxing trip we have made yet!!  I was too busy keeping my eyes on my work, that I barely noticed the road at all!!  This helped me, by not making myself a nervous wreak & helped Walt, by me not constantly riding his ass for driving too fast, etc.  He has decided that he wants me to bring something to crochet every time we drive any distance in the future!!  LOL

Well, I better go for now.  I am really tired all of a sudden.  I am afraid that I am now 2 days behind in reading your blogs & by tomorrow, it will be 3 days behind!!  Walt has so much stuff for me to do, that I may not get caught up for some time now.  We're talking weeks or worse!!  But I will at least try to read the blogs even if I don't have much time to actually comment on them all!!  You know how it is, once you get behind, you are always behind!!  Till next time.

Aloha My Friends  :)

GB, I wasn't sure if I could do it without getting sick either, but...I didn't! Yea!! I think it was because I didn't try to look up, then down all the time while I was doing the work.
