Ree Drummond and Household Head on a Street Journey for Christmas
We left on a Christmas trip Saturday morning. And by Saturday morning, I actually imply Friday evening, across the time school children usually are getting dwelling. Let me stroll you thru my day one diary, a.okay.a. The Street Journey!
2:20 am: I get up stuffed with dread. I hear Ladd opening and shutting our entrance door, and I do know precisely what he is doing: Loading up the automobile so we are able to head out on our Christmas street journey. I contemplate going again to sleep as a result of I used to be dreaming about Kevin Costner, however resolve it is futile as a result of a) I in all probability would not be capable of resume the dream even when I fell again asleep, and b) If I do not go forward and stand up, Ladd’s going to wake me up in about 5 minutes anyway.
2:35 am: Now wearing cozy automobile garments, I fill an additional massive jug with chilly brew, milk, and Stevia, and I fill a small insulated cooler with cans of Dr Pepper and Weight loss program Dr Pepper, as a result of I do know we’re hours away from stopping. We’re Drummonds, in spite of everything, and we’re exhausting core road-trippers.
2:43 am: We’re on our gravel street, leaving the ranch. And by “we,” I imply Ladd, me, Todd, and Todd’s good good friend, John Reed. John goes with us for the primary few days, and he spent the evening since we would be leaving so early. Todd and John stayed up all evening in anticipation of being within the automobile for 9 hours (they wished to sleep for lots of the journey), so earlier than we even get to the freeway, they’re slumbering within the again.
2:55 am: I’m slumbering within the entrance, curled up with a king-size pillow I introduced from our mattress. The identical pillow, by the best way, on which my head laid as I used to be dreaming of Kevin Costner a mere hour earlier than. Ladd, my real love regardless of my crush on Kevin, begins a brand new Tom Clancy audio guide.
6:44 am: I’m woke up by the brilliant lights of a gasoline station. Ladd has stopped to high off the gasoline and run inside, so I resolve to move in and get a scorching espresso to go along with the chilly brew I have never had a sip of but. I can barely stroll after I get out of the automobile as a result of I have been curled up in an unnatural place, so someplace in rural Kansas there is a gasoline station with safety footage of a lady with pink hair who’s strolling like a 97-year-old man.
8:36 am: I’ve consumed each my jug of chilly brew and my massive scorching espresso and I’ve additionally screened/edited an episode of my present on my laptop computer and completed the NYT Crossword. My glasses are dirty, so I clear them with my favourite glasses cleansing material I obtained as a present final week!! I like it!
9:49 am: We stopped an hour or so earlier, so I’m stretching my legs, toes, knees, hips, and toes. Street journeys are a stiff proposition for a gal like me! 😂
11:39 am: We’re lower than half-hour from our vacation spot in Colorado and it is not even midday but. 😂 That is what it is prefer to take a journey with Ladd Drummond. There is no such thing as a messing round, most of us sleep half the time, and earlier than we all know it, we have taken a 9 hour street journey. Hello, Todd and John! Are we there but?
11:52 am: The mountains. I would cry. We’re nearly there! This fall has been so busy. I would not say worrying, however simply…so much. Soccer, filming, taking pictures, household issues, work issues, ranch issues. I’d by no means complain, and I really like being dwelling on the ranch. However mama wants a small break!! Haha.
12:19 pm: We’re right here! And we have already unloaded all our luggage and stuff and…nicely, we acquired right here too early and our place is not prepared but. Hahaha. How ironic is that? However truthfully, it occurs on a regular basis! We get in such a rush to get to the place we’re going that the place we’re going is not even prepared for us. However that is okay! We loved a pleasant little brisk stroll round city!
12:50 pm: I really like Colorado trip canines! And Ladd in fact loves it after I make him cease in his tracks so I can meet and work together with every considered one of them. That is GASTON, and I really feel we’ve a lifelong connection now. What a cutie. And take a look at his booties!
1:18 pm: Okay, our place nonetheless is not prepared. 🤪 Remind me once more why we left the ranch at 2:43 am?!? I’m laughing so exhausting. Ladd and I sit within the foyer, the place he orders French fries and a coke. He then suggests I order a cocktail, to which I responded, “OKAY!!!!” It turned out to be very yummy.
That is all of the information that is match to print in the present day. To repeat: I’m so excited to have this time within the mountains with Ladd and the youngsters, who will slowly trickle on this week one after the other (and generally two by two.) That is the primary Christmas we can be with out Chuck, and since he has all the time been such a giant a part of our holidays, it seems like time to alter issues up and alter the surroundings a bit bit.
