Nothin’ But Blue Skies

A passage from my never-left-behind Moleskine journal-

Friday, March 28th, 2014

Headed to Kansas on Highway 70. Almost to Limon, CO. Blue sky day. 75 mph, and the hums and whistles of road-trippin. It’s been so long since we did this. 3 years since the 4 of us left Colorado to go somewhere together. How did we let it slip that long? Finances, moves, health issues, laziness? Anyway, it’s been too long, and I could tell by how hard it was to get going this morning. All the guys need these days are clothes, snacks, books, electronics, and pillows. One backpack a piece. How did I ever do this when they were babies? And how the hell did I do it when they were small and I was alone? A single mama with little 2 little guys, and so many reasons to run, run, run. I wonder if I was just more able in my 20s. I wonder if my 30s have too-early aged me, and caused me to forget how I used to fly across the midwest states in a most capable way. No matter. Today we fly again. Mountains at our backs, Plains ahead, hearts intact.

  1. Too easy to get stuck in our little tunnels and not venture out. And too many good reasons, as well. Celebrate your breaking free…and getting to see your awesome mama! Lol

      I’m so glad we broke out and got to see you! Need to get back into the swing of it. I wrote a lot from the road and was glad to begin sharing some of that today.

  2. Blessings on you, Angie and boys. How we miss being on the road, pulling into the campsite and me setting up the tent while Corky got Lanse ready for bed in the back of the VW Bus. Then up with the side poles and into the tent he went. Our record was ten minutes. Now Lanse is 38 and we take the train. But we’ll be back on the road again someday.

      Ah, fabulous memories, Steve! We just bought a tent and hope to use it soon! Many more memories to make for both of our families. <3
