    Husband Is A Trucker...

    ...so I went on several road trips. Even when we are on a holiday trip, we never stay longer than one or two days. Unsteady trucker behaviour.

    Hell On Wheels.

    So y'all wanna hear about my road trips, huh?  I have been on a million family road trips, since my family  can't really afford to use any other method of travel.  Plus my dad has always been a big fan of them, since he can control where we go, how we get there...

    I had a 5 hour drive with my dad yesterday.

    It was actually pretty fun because I had a bunch of Gabriel Iglesias clips stored on my phone, so my dad let me play them on the car radio. We were laughing the whole drive!
