And just like that, the trip is over. Granddad's doing better (thank you, thank you, thank you), and I've got to get back to work. Tonight my mom and I are in a motel in Ruston, Louisiana...in a 5-minute span, I saw a cricket, a cockroach, and a spider as big as my head. HOW FAR TO DALLAS, PLEASE?
The past week and a half has been a total blur — I honestly couldn't tell you what I did on Monday, other than spend time with Granddad. My mom and I are exhausted, mentally and physically, but the silver lining of this trip was the amount of time I got to spend with Granddad. I don't think I've ever spent that long with him before (the curse of living far away from extended family).
We'll be back in Dallas by tomorrow afternoon. Ahhhhh.
P.S. I reread this post and caught four grammatical and/or spelling errors. I AM PUTTING MYSELF TO BED NOW.
Another pic from the Twisted Root. That's my mom in the pic, though you really can't tell :)
