Worry Wart

Earlier this week Susie used the same title for a post about weather and traveling and worry for her MM on snowy roads. Sorry for the highjack Susie.

Well the last 24 hours have given that new meaning for me as I sat home powerless to help Alex and our oldest on a journey south through snow covered mountains. They were never in an accident themselves but the interstate they are driving has been closed for about 12 hours.

Unfortunately they got stuck in the middle of all of it and ended up sleeping (or not) in their car all night.

The road FINALLY just reopened and they are starting to drive again. Keep in mind they are still two states away and still have several hours of driving even if there are no further delays. Both their voices sound so tired.

My girl flies back to her school tomorrow so this was supposed to be a relaxing day to get her packed and ready for the next semester. Lack of sleep, the cold, and just the general stress of leaving and the new semester have her completely freaked out and pretty much an emotional puddle. I’m not sure Alex is much better at least on the inside.

I think worry wart pretty well sums up how I feel right now. My logical brain knows that it will be all right in the end and that after a few more tough hours their ordeal will be over. But my mom brain and my wife brain are working overtime right now with worry. It will be a long day until they are both home safe again.

    Thanks everyone!!! They’re home! Yeah! The trip should have taken 7 1/2 hours. It took over 25 hours and they were in the car for 23+ of those hours. Not fun. I have some very sleepy people here but happily they are tucked in and resting now. Thanks again!

    Thanks again all. All’s well that ends well. While they are not happy it happened I think in some weird way they enjoyed their adventure together and made some real father/daughter memories. Maybe not so bad in the end.
