Well we didn’t leave as early as I or some of my other sisters had hoped to leave on Thursday night. We all went to work that day (well except one sister Angie and Claudia got off at noon, thinking we were leaving at 1 p.m.). My sister Esmeralda was driving and since I live closer to 290 to head towards Austin, they all decided to meet at my house and we could go from there. So my sisters Angie and Claudia showed up at my house at 3:30 p.m. my son was there to let them in. My sister Esmeralda picked up my mom and sister Laura and they call came together. I got home around 5:45 p.m., my husband, Angie, Claudia and myself decided to head over to Black Eye Pea for dinner (as the others were having dinner with their families, Claudia enjoyed Black Eye Pea as she had never been not to mention we learned they would not be at my house until 8:30 p.m. or 9 p.m.)! We were supposed to have left from my house at 8 p.m., didn’t happen and which we knew it wouldn’t with our sister Esmeralda driving (thus, why she choose to drive us all in her car), she is always late for everything.
Finally, they arrived at my house and we made it to Austin (I won’t even tell you how fast we got there)! On the way we also learned it was MS150 race from Houston to Austin. I called hubby and gave him heads-up as he was driving down Saturday to take pictures of us at the Diva Dash. He said he would get on the road at 2:30 a.m. just to be on the safe side. We did have a great time on the way there, we laughed a lot (we did a lot of this on the trip). My sister Angie was recording part of the trip on the way there with her tablet (she has to have all the latest gadgets and loves playing Words with Friends, which she got my husband addicted to now)! We checked in to hotel and got our rooms (we had two rooms, which we called the “snoring” room and the “non-snoring” room. I was in the non-snoring room, but I wished I would have gotten my own room, you will know why in bit when I get to the other days of the trip). Don’t want to overwhelm you guys so thus, this one short and Day 1 I call it.
More to come, stay tuned….
Hope all of you are doing great, keeping up with your healthy eating and exercising. I miss chatting with my Spark Buddies, but just b/c I may seem to not be on here much lately does not mean I am not thinking of you guys.
