Hey, all, we have doc appointments the next trhee days, so I'm sending this at 8 PM Tuesday to be Wednesday's check-in caht. It's that or not see y'all till... uh...
OK, so, SIL REPORTED IN!
We had a few days off. OK, not true. She had no cell service. We're nto sure why. So where is she?
Funny you should ask.
She wasn't sure.
OK, SIL, check your GPS.
Text this evening: "We are in Springfield".
WHICH ONE?!?! There are 33 towns in the US, in over 20 states, with that name! Massachusetts? Missouri? ILllinois? (None of which are on her itinerary yet, but hell, she got lost going from Bismarck to Moutn Rushmore.)
Nebraska? That might be near her stated-on-paper goal for this week (OK, not really. Wyoming was the goal. Just Wyoming. The whole state.)
So, naturally, we texted back, WHICH SPRINGFIELD? WHAT STATE?
Reply from SIL: "It's flattish."
Oh good, that narrowed it down to... not West Virginia or New Hampshire. I think.
"We found a McDonalds".
Oh, yeah, SIL, that also narrows it down... How many McDs in the US?...
So, we're starting to really wonder if she and her hubby got into something (drugs, the Twilight Zone, maybe Canada by accident)...
And she texts us this pic, and it just says the usual "Welcom eto SPringfield"
OK, it's official. SIL has gotten into "The Simpsons".
Finally, we got a text from SIL's kid, our niece:
"Fam, we are in Colorado. Grand Canyon is next."
So... Good news: We have located SIL and her kid and hubby. Colorado.
Bad news: SIL is navigating to the Grand Canyon, and did anyone else see how "Thelma & Louise" ended? Yeah.
If you live between Colorado and the Grand Canyon... Or anywhere east or west of it... Y'know, just beware a large RV with Minnesota plates and a very blonde middle-aged woman asking directions! She won't listen.
Peeps - Sorry this is late. I lost all motivation late yesterday and then had a really bad night. Pretty sure that I was awake every hour on the hour. And, at 3 AM, Smurf threw up on the bed. Naturally, I have an appointment today too.I will check back in later. I just wanted to get us started!
Hey, all! I should be back Monday morning. Till then, my cats send you Fur-iday purrs and, obvs, relaxation vibes.
