For the second time in 4 months, I’m driving with a daughter, all of her belongings packed in her car, going west to start her post-college-graduation life.
That’s the fun of twinsies!
Off we go! This time it’s Glenda, and she’s headed to Vegas to see what she can get into with her hoop performing. If you’ve seen her, you get it. She’ll hit up the clubs and theaters and send out her resume and watch the magic happen. She’ll also find a quick cocktail waitress job – follow her Calliope Facebook page for news of dates and places of her performances.
So we started out today at the crack of 1pm. It took a little longer to finish packing than we planned, but we finally closed the doors of Captain Janeway and off we went for the Delta Quadrant.
Today we made it as far as Russellville, Arkansas (don’t ask anything about it – we’ve seen the inside and outside of the La Quinta). The total trip mileage is 1820-ish and we’re just gonna drive west til we get there…Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada.
To get us going, Glenda’s mix for the day was the sound track to Ocean’s 11 and 12, and a little Elvis, and some Frank Sinatra, RatPack era. We had our usual road-trip mother-daughter car-conversation about life, love, family, and the zombie apocalypse. We had one additional passenger, Glenda’s beloved Mrs. Whiskers:
It is also important to note the mileage of our trusty minivan:
Shooting for the New Mexico state line for tomorrow night, but that may be a little too far. Amarillo Texas may be more realistic. Come visit tomorrow and see how far we’ve gotten!
