A part of me wonders if perhaps I should’ve been a travel agent. For me, planning a trip is as much fun as actually going on a trip. It’s one of the few areas in my life where I am completely organized. My meticulous planning is based, at least in part, on nervousness.

Today I’m being featured at my friend Kristin’s site, Campfire Diaries. Her blog is dedicated to inspiring families to seek adventure.

At my last update, we were in Amherst, MA – catching up on laundry, bills, writing and squeezing in some exploration of Berkshires. After Amherst, we traveled to Providence, Rhode Island to check off another state capitol and visit my sister, Kendall. The capitol building was pretty, but unremarkable in that it’s similar to many of the capitols we’ve already toured. However, this one will always stay with me – my son Barrett managed to disturb a gubernatorial candidate’s press conference with his loud singing and clapping. They were not happy with us!
Finally, I have an update. I’m so sorry it’s taken me this long, but we’ve been very busy and I’m realizing that I don’t have the same energy I’ve had in years past – which is killing me. By the time I get our day documented and the photos downloaded and posted on the Road Warrior blog, I’m kind of done with the computer. This hasn’t been good, because I’ve been trying to stay plugged into the blogging world and it’s hard to do when the days are so packed.
