    The paternal side (aka the Normal side) of husband's family is having their reunion tomorrow. In Oroville, CA.

    So, tonight, after work, we will be heading down there. 700 miles (12 hours if you don't stop) for a reunion that starts around 11am tomorrow. It is going to be a long night. But, we've made this trip in one day before, so we know that we can do it again.

    I love going to visit these people. They welcome you in with tons of love, no judging. His Aunts are fighting over us, we have to spend a night at each of their houses. With each mile out of our town, our problems drop off and we have the most relaxing time.

    On our way home, we will be take our time. We are going to go home along the coast line. It should be a lot of fun. We've been looking forward to this trip since the reunion last year.

    The bittersweet part is that I'll have no computer access until Thursday.... I will miss all of you!!!

    Outside of the initial drive itself, it sounds like you are in for a lovely visit and relaxing time - Enjoy!!

    When we drive from CT to WV to see my sister, it takes us about 11-12 hours also. That is one

    Enjoy your trip! I'd be going through withdrawal with no computer for a week. I think that's why Santa got me a cheap laptop!

    I can't wait for you to get back and let us know what "normal" is like. I truly don't think I know. :)
