The Daily EO: March 18, 2012

It is about a 3.5 hour drive from Huntsville to St. Catharines.   We do the drive often:  Highway 11, Highway 400, 401, 427, QEW, 406.  For excitement, sometimes we use the 407.  Always a good idea at the time, never quite sure when the hangover in the form of the 407 bill comes in.   As we are normally driving there for a weekend with my in-laws, we tend to going South on Friday nights and North on Sunday nights.

This past weekend was such a trip.  We left later than we normally do on a Sunday because we had the rare occasion of a quiet afternoon and supper with just my Mother-in-Law.  So, we didn’t leave until after 7 o’clock.  A long trip for someone who has to work the next morning – ahem, unfortunately, that is not me.

The trip seemed to go by in a flash this time.  We talked about my family, his family, Huntsville, Toronto, his work, my potential job offer, our friends, where our next vacation might be, Christmas gifts (yes, sorry, I have a problem – blame my mother), future plans, and short-term plans.  He laughed at me, I laughed at him.  We laughed together.

And somehow when I looked up, the sign said “Huntsville 53 kms”
