Girls Write Out
Friday, July 03, 2009

We're attending our nephew's wedding this weekend. I can't wait because we get to see family that we haven't seen in a while, and it will be great. The one thing, however, that does bother me, is traveling over a holiday. More traffic. People in a hurry to get where they're wanting to go. 

But maybe that's just me. Then I got to thinking I'd throw that question out there to our cyber buddies. Do you prefer to travel on the holidays, do you prefer to stay home, or do you not care either way? Any special plans for the fourth?

And to our servicemen and women everywhere I just want to say, THANK YOU!

I have cousins in both Indiana and Ohio and a number of their adult kids have scheduled weddings over holiday weekends like the Fourth, or Labor Day. They think it's easier on the guests since they'll already have an extra day off work. Might work well for those who live in small towns, but I live in the Chicago area & must travel from the northwest burbs around the city to get to I-65 & beyond. Always congested, but on holiday weekends, it's terrible.

Some time ago a wedding was held in northeast Ohio & we got stuck in the mother of all traffic jams on the Indiana Toll Road coming back. Ended up getting off and taking state routes before getting back on when we had no choice. Didn't get home until way after dark. After that I end up leaving early morning of the last day of the weekend just to avoid such a thing.

I travel by train to see my family so it really doesn't make a difference when I go, the price stays the same.

Happy Independence Day and have a wonderful time at the wedding.

We're staying home, grilling, and trying to keep the marshmallow dog from eating the windowsills. He's terrified by fireworks. We're even thinking of getting some sedatives from the vet. Sheesh.

We usually travel back to IA to spend it with family. But this year we're staying home, which I am for one happy with. I dislike the traveling and the cost of gas.

This year promises to be relaxing and fun for us. (And possibly productive, as I should get some writing in.)

The hotel room last night gave us a lovely view of fireworks nearby. Spectacular! Reminding us anew of the freedoms we enjoy as a nature, and I pray that we continue to enjoy!

Happy Independence Day, Friends!!!

Because of back problems with traveling, I definitely prefer to stay around home for the holiday, except for Thanksgiving and Christmas. We try to leave on weird times then, so we aren't caught up in traffic. But we have to deal with the frozen water kind those two holidays--snow/ice.

Family reunion in WI. We came the farthest (from Turkey)...but we'd already been on the road (London, Philadelphia, and DC) for a week, so you cannot say we came directly from Turkey. :) I prefer not to travel, actually.
