It’s been a long time since I took a road trip, this time last year, in fact, when I did my 30-day road trip out west. This trip isn’t quite so grand, but it should be just as much fun.
The first five days I’ll be traveling with my parents. (Heaven help all of us.) I *adore* my parents and they adore me, but our lives are quite different, as they should be. It will be interesting to see how we’re able to work it out. They’re easy-going and generous, so I suspect all will be fine. If not, well, I’ll just apply their portion of my Christmas budget to my trip!
For our shared part of the trip, we’ll be visiting family and sights in the Washington-Baltimore area. After that, we split up and I’ll visit with some creative-type friends for a long weekend. After that, I don’t know where I’m going to go. Right now I’m thinking southern Pennsylvania over to Mill Run and Frank Lloyd Wright’s home, Falling Water. But I don’t know. I may turn south instead and do southern Virginia and then the mountains of North Carolina.
Needless to say, all of this traveling turns my normal way of eating and exercising on end. I’m thinking of resurrecting my 100-Pushups Challenge. Or maybe I’ll just focus on the Fantastic Five: push-ups, squats, lunges, planks, and dips. If I run out of ideas, I’ve got my NURU exercise cards in my computer bag. I’m okay with whatever I decide to do, as long as I do something.
Speaking of doing something, I’ve got a whole list of things still to be done. I’ll be blogging in bits and pieces and catching up with what’s going on with you all as I can. One thing about traveling with senior citizens is that they’re generally done pretty early in the evening.
