August 6-7th Drive Home
Sun Aug 07, 2005 9:24 am
We left the studio, as mentioned, drove all the way to Salt Lake, went to sleep around 3:00am, got up, were ready to leave by 10:00am, only there was something leaking from under the hood, so we drove to get the oil changed, etc. Turns out is the water pump seal. We patched everything up temporarily and headed home. 24 hrs. later, after driving though the night, we arrived. 12:30pm. I drove over half - 730 miles of the trip myself... and actually, (brag, brag) 350 miles of the trip (over half) from Seattle to Salt Lake - making me the champion driver... jk. John drove thru the night last night. I cat napped a few times, but am totally toast right now.
We lied to Kim - telling her we were 5-6 hrs away and surprised her by being here after she got home from church. She and the small gang freaked. We got home in time to do the house cleaning she was going to do for us... it was so cool. Now we're all slugging around. - too sleepy to stay awake. Including me..... zzzzzzzz.......
We're so happy to be home. it's amazing. Weston wanted his mom's beans and rice so that's what she was cooking when we arrived. I want to go to our own Starbucks tonight and see people. i'm flat lining... my drive today began at 6:30am after what felt like no sleep at all. I drove the entire 350 straight with everyone asleep... but now am feeling it. ok. zzzz....... bd
