Headin' to Houston for the Hitchin'

The Captain's sister is getting married this weekend in Houston. We are headed out this afternoon on the first leg of the journey.

Yes, we are driving.

Yes, it is 600 miles one way.

Yes, we are crazy.

Yes, we priced airline tickets.

Yes, it was too much money.

Yes, we are staying in three different hotels. In three different cities. On three different nights.

Yes, we are gypsies.

Yes, I know Houston is just a hop, skip & a jump from Mexico, Home of the Swine Flu.

Let's see.....Do I have everything?

Bridesmaid's dress for Jordan? Check.

Big tux for the Captain? Check.

Little tux for Cooper? Check.

Snacks? Check.

Map of every Starbucks location between here and Houston? Check.

Movies? Check.

More movies? Check.

iPods? Check.

Tom Tom? Check Check.

Chargers for 2 DVD players, 3 iPods, 1 camera, 3 cell phones, and 1 gameboy? Multiple checks.

Face masks to avoid the Swine Flu? Check. Just kidding. Kind of. But I am packing Lysol which should come as no surprise to those that know me well. And, of course, a gallon of hanitizer. Which I always have with me anyway - road trip or not. Go ahead. Make fun.

Anything else? Probably not.

OK kids, hop in the car.

See you people next week. I feel certain there will be much blog fodder collected this weekend.
