May 31, 2019: Driving to Houston

Friday. My last day at home alone. And just six days until we start traveling for the summer. That is coming up quickly! Especially with two days of that time being in Houston, there are no weekend days in Dallas left for me until August! (That is a little weird to think about.)

I got some good sleep last night. Going to bed early was definitely the right choice. I got over three hours of deep sleep, according to my AmazFit, which is way more than I usually get. I was in bed for basically nine hours. That’s hours more rest time and more deep sleep than usual. Not sure why I was feeling so tired, but for whatever reason, it caught up with me.

It’s cooler in Carrollton today. And a light drizzle. Overcast.

An acquaintance of mine, a friend of a friend in Nicaragua, was in a car accident two weeks ago and lost her job because she cannot come in to work. Her insurance wasn’t enough to cover food and medicine, she is in a wheelchair now. So she needed exactly the amount of money that I had for my birthday money, so that’s what I bought for my birthday. I had to run to Western Union to deal with that this morning, so while out I treated myself to some donuts over on Marsh.

Today was a very busy day, so much to do before leaving for Houston tomorrow. I am only in Houston for one night, but it is still a lot of time away and there is so little time before we leave for so long, which always stresses me out.

I worked and got on the road as soon as I could. It was around eight when I left the house. I stopped at the Carl’s Jr on Route 20 at the Luv’s Travel Stop and grabbed a Beyond Burger before driving on south. Overall the drive went fine. The roads were pretty clear and the weather was good. It is going to be a busy weekend for sure.

I got to the house around one in the morning and went straight to bed. Everyone was already asleep. The party is at noon tomorrow, so it is going to be a very busy day.
