Over the weekend we drove to Atlanta to visit Christopher's grandmother. After the Columbus car break in and the tour of Texas hospitals last month I was expecting the worst to happen on this trip. Forget about low expectations, I set my expectations at zero. I fully prepared myself for the car to catch on fire or someone's appendix to burst. I believe the word you're looking for is optimistic.
Thankfully we enjoyed a three day visit with very little crying and no sickness. Annabelle and Great Gran were thick as thieves by the time we left. We went swimming, visited C's aunt and uncle, and ate at Ihop where AB licked the remaining drops out of all the empty half and half containers. We've been making our child's vacation dreams a reality since 2014.
We did have one problem. More of a disagreement than a problem, really. Christopher and I have an on-going disagreement about the appropriateness/legality of stopping at a hotel to use their lobby restroom instead of using the restrooms at a rest stop. One of us says it's wrong because we're not paying customers, the other says it's perfectly fine because A) there are no signs forbidding it and B) the paying customers have their own restrooms.
Please help us resolve this issue. The peace of our next car trip may depend on you. No pressure!
(Please don't let Christopher win this one. He still brings up how he won the best ways to defrost raw chicken poll a few years ago.)
