Our entire two week Indiana road trip was shockingly devoid of our usual crazy moments. There were no children sick. We didn’t lose any of them or worse…forget one somewhere. We got up every day and did so many neat things.
But what went wrong all happened in Corydon, Indiana. It had absolutely nothing to do with the city or area whatsoever and probably had much more to do with how tired we were from road tripping almost every day.
We spent the day at Conner Prairie and then drove from the Indianapolis area to Corydon. We must have been exhausted because we could no longer think straight. We checked into the Hampton Inn and then it was time for supper. It took us (no kidding) 20 minutes to drive half a mile to a restaurant that took us 30 minutes to decide on. Ha ha! Haven’t you been there?
We normally look for local foodie joints, but at this point we just wanted to fill bellies and relax. We ended up at a burger franchise. Upon arriving it took us another 20 minutes to decide what to order. I went outside to sit down and get some fresh air, with my palm in my face. 😉 Finally sitting down with the food Jason began the blessing praying that “God would bless this body…to our food.” We burst out laughing!
It was the humor we needed to lighten the moment. Eating outside proved to be a wise decision as the kids literally ran around the tables, played games, and had a grand old time. We topped the night off with ice cream and a night of mini golf.
Life would be much more boring without those crazy moments right? The only other thing that went wrong happend the next morning. When I woke up I couldn’t open my mouth! This had never happened to me before. Some people call it lock jaw although when researching it is more like TMJ. I was in pain the rest of the trip! Three months later it is much better, but I still can’t open my mouth all the way. Have you ever had this happen? Chalk one more thing up to the strange things that happen to me! 🙂
Way too much stress in too short a time! I’m so glad your jaw didn’t stay locked! You would have to listen to me talk and not be able to answer.
But it was so fun!! And it is a great way to keep a family of seven busy, learning, and having a blast! I’m so thankful no one got sick! Well I could still talk. It was just hard to eat.
