24 Hour Drive

The chaos and living of life continues. Before the Move to Mexico decision, we planned a beach vacation with special friends for 1st week of June. It seemed like a great idea at the time.

The problems became too expensive air fare, the abundance of American House tasks and work being crazy. But. I am not one to be daunted when a wonderful life experience presents itself.

So the solutions became:

Drive: After careful gas cost analysis, decided to drive. It is just a 24 hour drive. Yeah.

American House Tasks: Husband stayed home to paint inside of house.

New Problem - the Drive: I am a Can Do person but driving with two young boys for 24 hours is a bit much for even me. So Very Spontaneous Neighbor and her child agree to go with us with 40 hours notice. Very Spontaneous Neighbor did not quite understand a 24 hour drive was involved but that is just in the details ...

Work Being Crazy: Take my 2 computers, iPhone and on the beach wireless! Not ideal but work and play are a way of life.

We are here! It is an amazing 15 room+ house with private pool on the beach. We have 11 children and 9 adults.

And yes, we did drive 24 hours straight with 2 determined mommies and 3 children under the age of 8 with no less than 20 potty stops
