Our Numbers (so far)

driving on St. Augustine Beach
Last year, on my birthday, I did My Numbers.

Today, on my 35th birthday, I am going to write out Our Numbers (so far).

We packed 5 people into 1 small civic on 2.23.13, 14 days ago.

We have driven about 1,800 miles.

Spent almost $160 in gas.

Driven through 10 states and 1 federal district.

Slept in 9 different locations.

The longest we have stayed anywhere is 3 nights.

Two (2) lotion bottles have exploded in our bags.

We have met a dozen really interesting people.  Mostly from other countries.

We have lost:
  • 2 sippy cups
  • 1 shoe
  • 1 pair of sunglasses
  • 5 socks (no matches)
  • Simon, only once
  • a bit of sanity
We sent back 1 big box full of stuff we realized we don't really need.  And we can probably send back another.
Making pb&j sandwiches for the kids in Hollywood Beach.  A young woman walking by said to my kids, "Your mom is a hero!"  Isabella was a little confused, but I felt flattered
