Lows & Highs: Road Trip

Welcome to Lows & Highs, a Stories from the Stairs weekly-ish feature! Feel free to join in by posting your lows and highs from the week in the comments or by posting a link to your own lows and highs blog post.

Low: About thirty minutes into our four-hour road trip, I broke the bow clean off my sunglasses and had to make do as best I could, alternating between squinting and holding up the broken shades for the rest of the drive.

High #1: Brian and I took Cola on her first long road trip and she did wonderfully! We timed the road trip to start after an energetic play session with lots of running, and during her normal two-hour afternoon nap. Cola obligingly laid in her kennel and slept most of the way except when we stopped for walking breaks. By the time we arrived at my parents’ house, she was ecstatic to get out and meet her new friends, Shadow and Cobra!

High #2: We have had a terrific visit with my parents helping around the house, playing with Cola, playing games, and telling stories. Brian’s parents were also able to come and join us for dinner one night, so that made the visit even more special!
