My trip home

OK, I made it home yesterday morning from
Lousiana. Sunday was the final day for
the NPF Championships. The Florida Pride
ended up winning it all after losing the
first game. Cat Osterman pitched a very
good game and shut down the bats on Chicago's
team. The Florida Pride came out swinging
and scored in every inning except the first
and the last. They ended up winning 7-2.
Natasha Watley was the MVP of the series
and I am so happy for her!!! I did end
up going tubing and relaxing in the lazy
river my last morning there. It was so
nice to just relax and enjoy the setting.

So all was good and we ended up finishing
a little later than expected. I had to
drive 2 1/2 hours back to Houston for an
early flight Mon morning. After finally
getting on the road with Julie, UConn
softball, at 9pm, we expected to arrive
at the hotel around 11:30am. That was
before we found out that there had been
a big rig accident with a chemical spill
and the interstate was shut down! After
crawling for an hour and a half, we finally
found a detour and a Waffle House and
decided to stop and eat. We figured we
might end up heading straight to the airport
and not sleep!

Yep, this was the time: 12:15am

Best part, they let me order a Senior meal
(65 and over) for $2.70. Not sure if I
should be offended or just excited (ha ha)

We chowed and it tasted so good, maybe
because we were delirious!

We decided to take a picture so we could
laugh about it later!

At least I got stuck with somebody else and not
alone! We finally made it to the hotel at 1:30am
and got 2 1/2 hours of sleep before driving to the
airport and flying home! Back to homeschooling,
cleaning, laundry, cooking, cleaning, and all those
other mom responsibilities! It was fun while it
