Spank you

My Thanksgiving went pretty well. I left around 1:30pm on Tuesday and got to my parents' place at 11:30pm, so it was a nice 10 hour drive. I only hit traffic at the beginning of my trip, so I guess I shouldn't complain. I was really tired by the end of the trip and my eyes were hurting, but I managed to make it without causing an accident.

Since my mom has a newish job, her hours are different than years past, so I got to spend a lot more time with my parents than usual. It was nice seeing my family. And the food was great, too. I cheated a bit on my no sugar diet and had some apple pie and coffee bread, but... I just couldn't resist. I didn't gain any weight from it anyhow, so there.

I left on Saturday around noon. I wish I could've stayed longer, but I knew the traffic on Sunday would be hellish. I hit quite a bit of traffic in Massachusetts, but once I got out of the state, the roads were fairly barren. The weather cooperated most of the way with just a bit of rain and snow falling. Somehow, despite the traffic and weather problems, I got home in about 9-1/2 hours.

It seems I'm not cut out for long distance driving, though. My back started hurting about an hour into the trip up and my neck and shoulders started hurting about two or three hours into the trip back.
