back in the car

Everyone is still asleep but me. When they wake up, we're going to pack up, get our massive luggage to the ferry, wait for a ferry, take a 45 minute bus ride to our car in a parking lot, drive off the Cape, head up north out of Massachusetts, and drive all the way up towards Canada, to remote Northern Maine.

This "vacation" is involving spending a lot of time driving up and down the length of Maine (which, for those of you who haven't been there, is a Very Large State). Lucy alternates between being hot and commanding the air conditioning be turned way up with suddenly freaking out and becoming coldcoldcold. Iris hogs the communal armrest and the iPod and cries when we make her give Lucy a turn with those amenities. Anton fusses with his iPhone while driving until I confiscate it on safety grounds. (And what do I do which is annoying? I require more bathroom stops than anyone else, but other than that, I'm just damn delightful).

ohh, I wish we could road-trip together! I take a lot of bathroom stops too so it'd be fine.

glad to hear you're getting off MV!
