Day 37: The Calm Before the Storm

Today was a really lazy day, at least in terms of activity and lack of planning. We hung out all day talking with Scott, and later George, and did some packing. I decided that it would be more difficult to pack the trunk halfway tonight and pack the other half in the morning than to just pack the whole thing in the morning. Plus there would be fewer mosquitoes that early tomorrow. So we will have to leave extra time in the morning, solidifying the need for an early bedtime tonight.

We packed up what we could in our suitcases and other bags, and ate a few stray groceries, including some special things we got at the Dekalb Farmer’s Market yesterday (yellow kiwis, guava, sugar cane), and are preparing for sleep.

Tomorrow we start the long push home, driving the long stretch from Atlanta to just outside Dallas, Texas.

Drove: None.

State: Georgia.

Weather: Hot and humid.

Kids: Still pretty well-behaved, but bored. They’ve gotten used to there being daily activities to entertain them and keep their minds active.

Best Parts of the Day: Great conversation with friends.

Worst Part of the Day: Dreading the car packing, since I know it won’t all fit, and not knowing what to do with what doesn’t fit.
