back in the day...well, not that long ago...if we were traveling and we needed to use a phone we would actually have to stop, find a phone booth, either call collect or use our prepaid phone card, and then we could call our loved ones and update them on how our trip was going, where we were, that sort of thing. (long sentence!)
tonight, yes tonight, the girls are driving down with james, gav and jack-jack from oregon. gratefully they can text me every once in a while and let me know where they are. i am grateful they are spending the night in redding, so they aren't too exhausted by the time they get here tomorrow...which would have been the middle of the night had they continued their drive.
now i anxiously await their safe arrival in redding. i will feel great when i know they are there and settled in for the night.
