We Are On The Road

Hi All, please forgive me if I haven't been responding to your comments. I am trying to do a little something tonight but we are two days into our drive home and frankly, I am exhausted. Al drive day one and today he didn't feel well enough to drive so I did the 314-mile drive. We arrived here in Wilson North Carolina at about 3:30 p.m.Luckily there is a very good hamburger joint within walking distance so we didn't have to drive out to eat. I have been writing for some assignments that I have been getting, I would rather not have the pressure of writing while traveling but unfortunately we can't always choose when opportunity calls. I really can use the money I am earning so my paid writing is coming first. Tomorrow we will make it to Virginia where we will stay for three days while visiting friends. I am looking forward to that. On Monday night we will be in Wilkes Barre, PA and then on Tuesday, we will arrive home. I will be very glad to sleep in my own bed, I was not impressed with the one I had last night. I am going to try to catch up a little and then I am going to sleep. If Al can drive tomorrow, I can MyLot a little as we drive along.

We arrived home on Tuesday and no, not really. We are so tired, it is a long drive and Al is a little off. I hope to be back in the swing of things soon though.

@BelleStarr Would flying not be an option for you another year?

@jaboUK Yes but we need to buy a car for Florida and there is not a really convenient airport but yes, it may have to become an option.

I do hope the rest of your trip is uneventful. I can't do anything when I'm in a car except watch the road. I get carsick if I read or knit or whatever.

I figured out years ago if I only moved my eyes and not my head I could do things in the car, it was the head movement that made me sick.

@BelleStarr That's interesting. Maybe I'll do some experimenting. If I get sick, I'll tell Vince it's your fault.

@JudyEv The first thing I actually did was crochet and it shocked me; avoid looking out the side windows that movement can make you sick in my experience. But yes I can read I just keep my head facing forward and only move the eyeballs lol good luck

That must have been exhausting for you. It must be an arduous journey each day you travel. Good luck with those writing assignments.

I can't wait to see all the pictures I just know you are taking. I've never been that far east and would love to see what you get to see. Have a safe journey and a fun visit.

Believe it or not, I didn't take many pictures this trip, I drove two legs so I was occupied with paying attention.

Have you ever considered installing a dash cam @BelleStarr ? As much as you get to travel it would be fun to see what kinds of shots it would get you, well to me anyway, I love looking at pictures.

Hello friend! I can see how you would be exhausted! I envy you being able to make money writing. I've thought about starting a blog but have no clue where to start. I know you will be so happy to be back home.

I tried to mylot yesterday while waiting for someone at a swimming pool. Didn't work too well so I decided to just watch people swimming (slow connection on my phone!)

It is nice to earn from some paid writing sites, but I do not like the pressure it entails.
