Since Belle is Waiting...

Hubby and I had to go to Pennsylvania to take care of some business...we live in Florida. We drove from Florida to Pennsylvania, just the two of us. I have to say - we had a good time. Hubby drives a truck for a living so he knew his way around the interstates and didn't get us lost! We drove thru Atlanta. I grew up in Macon, GA so I know about the driving in Atlanta...I rode the whole way thru with my eyes closed.
We drove thru Tennessee, got our oil changed...woo-hoo
We drove thru a couple more states, but by this time I was DONE! I got engrossed in my book and let the miles fly by. We were supposed to go to Gettysburg (because I LOVE history), but didn't have time.
By Saturday we were in Philly. Yea, Philly! We had an AWESOME Philly Cheese steak from Pat's, I got a new coffee mug and a tiny version of the Declaration. I wanted to see Independence Hall, but the fuckers obviously didn't know it was ME that wanted in and decided to adhere to the posted hours of operation...all the tours were sold out. I mean SERIOUSLY don't you people have anything better to do? Yes, EVERYTHING is about ME...unless its not.
While we were in Philly Hubby wanted to see the Rocky statue...UGH! You know, its bad enough that that man took pictures of me beside the ASS END of the Wall Street Bull two years ago - now he wants a picture of me with ROCKY?!?!?! I don't think so! We never did find the Rocky statue (THANK GOD!), but unfortunately we did find a Rocky cut out...guess who got their picture taken with it? I don't have the pictures with me right now, but I'll post them later...
Needless to say, we enjoyed our little road trip. I even drove from outside Atlanta to Tally...Hubby is a control freak when it comes to driving, I think its because he's a 'professional'. We left Pennsylvania at 9am Monday morning...we got home at 6am Tuesday morning...I think my body is still getting over the drive...

Wow! You're so scared of Belle!
Maybe I should be more careful about what I say in the comments section of her blog!!

There's just nothing like a road trip with hubby : ) I had *no idea* there was a Rocky statue. I don't even know what to say . . .

Ok. I forgive you. Spending all that time on your butt! You know what I'm waiting for now right? Yep. You and the bull...
Roshni. Don't worry. My bark is far worse than my bite.

That made my butt numb. Sounds like a great time! If I'd taken that trip with The Spouse, the authorities would be looking for his body all along the East Coast. Just sayin.
