Road Trip

With the tight schedule for our move and my husband getting extra training for work at the end of the month we decided that the best time to make a visit to my inlaws was this weekend. So here we are several hours north enjoying some dodgy weather. Luckily since we were last here my inlaws got DSL so it is not taking me hours to keep up with my blogging.

I have to say that the Odyssey is an awesome road trip car. There are ten different cup holders that are accessible from the front seats! Ten!! The built in DVD player was awesome to use. We did not have to reach around behind us to use the controls like we did with our portable DVD player. The radio controls doubled as DVD controls. Another awesome thing about this car is that there are so many nooks and crannies to store things. It was so nice to not feel stuffed into the car. I am so glad that we will have this car for the move, it is going to make my drive so much nicer.

This morning I am planning a trip to the local yarn store. I have heard a lot of nice things about it and can't wait to see it. I have been hankering for another lace project so we shall see what I come home with.

Hope you got some knitting time in on that trip (hint) (hint) (grin)

TEN cup holders? You fill all those and you'll be stopping every 15 miles to find a potty!!!!

Having a comfy car makes a HUGE difference for long road trips!

10 cupholders?! That will just make you want to drink more ... and then you'll have to make more potty stops during your trip, hee hee!
