I had to wonder this morning, while driving through the barren New Mexican desert, why in the world anyone would ever want to live in New Mexico (besides in the little city of Farmington, where the worlds finest hotel "Hotel Applegate" is located! Thanks Liz). Then as I was driving at 5:30AM I noticed that I was seeing about ten shooting stars per second. At first I thought they might be UFOs because, well, I was pretty close to Roswell. So I had to look it up tonight and found that one of the best meteor showers ever happened to be going on right as I was driving in the dark New Mexican desert. It was awesome. So don't complain the next time you have to wake up at 4:15AM to drive for fourteen hours, you may just be in for a treat!

On that note, I am going to bed. It's been a long two days of driving, and a long two weeks of being away from home. From the looks of my legs one might guess that I have a severe case of elephantiasis. Seriously. My ankles are as big as my thighs.

Look forward to upcoming posts about Bentley's bout with pneumonia, and me nearly getting arrested for child abduction at a Subway in Ozona, TX - - oh yes and of course how I ruined Christmas for a good friend and many of her neighbors since my dogs escaped on CHRISTMAS DAY, bah. Nothing like a road trip to jog the mind for a few good blog posts.

For now though I must tend to this elephantiasis.

Awww, you were in Utah and I never even got to see you! :(

I, uh...I've actually really wanted to live in New Mexico for a while. But the desert appeals to me and I'm weird like that ;)

*hugs* Sorry to hear about your elephantiasis. It's a long shot, but I wonder if chocolate could cure it? :p

Elephant ankles were a best case scenario - just be glad you didn't go into labor!

Can't wait to hear the latest shenangigans of dear Kristi! Glad you're home safely!
