Happy Anniversary to Us ~ May 4th to May 5th, 2020

I almost forgot! Today marks our anniversary of leaving our home in Florida due to COVID-19 for our home over 1400 miles away in Connecticut. Hard to believe it’s been one year! We left Florida and drove straight through the eastern states with only one bathroom break in South Carolina and a couple of stops for gas. I packed sandwiches and bottled water which we ate in the car. Got home in the middle of the night, left everything in the car, used the bathroom, washed up, and fell asleep immediately. That’s one trip I would never want to repeat, but getting home to a safe place was all that mattered.

We felt trapped in our condo with covidiots. Taking the elevator or 3 flights of stairs, going to the lobby to get our mail, etc. No room to breathe. That was when people were dropping like flies from the virus. Here in Connecticut, we have lots of land and a quiet neighborhood in which to walk. Hubs would have gone stir crazy being cooped up in Florida.

Some trips really are hellish. I had one many years ago - not as long as yours but with Vince in the front seat with pneumonia and a baby in the back. It was night-time, threatening to storm and I had a four-hour trip ahead. But it's all in the past.

Do you drive also or does anyone else help with the driving? My husband is so stubborn he insists on driving all the time because I drive to fast. After a few years of his way of thinking, I figured what the heck and sleep more or read more. When my daughter and I did the same trip we each took turns.

@DianneN It has been very crazy. We had to drive up to New Jersey to see my daughter and my grandsons. the oldest boy just got home for a leave from the Navy and was in Barain for over 2 years. The trip wasn't that bad. I don't drive as my husband won't ride with me as I go to fast. Personally, I think he drives to slow.....
