We had business in Forks, Washington this last weekend. The city was celebrating "Stephenie Meyer Day" and "Bella's Birthday". (Here are the shirts I designed and made for the event. All the red parts are red glitter ink.)
Our friends who own "Dazzled By Twilight" brought in The Mitch Hansen Band for Saturday's entertainment and Anson was doing the sound for them.
Of course we tried to book a hotel last minute and NOTHING was available, so we decided to take our motorhome since we had to haul a bunch of music equipment, including a drum set along with 3 big boxes of merchandise for the twilight store.
We dropped Anson Jr. off at Shannon's house and Ryan came and picked up Ashton and Ammon. Anson and I were really looking forward to a good weekend away and spend some time alone...without the kids.
We decided it would be best if I stayed back with the RV so that once it was repaired, I could drive it up to Forks. Otherwise, Anson would be stranded in Forks with no way to get back to me. No sooner did they leave that the repair guys showed up. I sat on the bed and read my book, "The House" by Danielle Steel while the guys worked.
Good news is, that I got to drive this 27 foot mother lover up to Forks without hitting anything, crashing or breaking down again!!! I have never driven this thing before and I was scared! I got on the road at 5:30PM and told Anson that I was on my way. He was so happy because he felt so bad leaving me there alone.
Driving the Rv wasn't so bad. I was very lucky that there wasn't a hole lot of traffic though, cause that stresses me out more than anything!
I get to Forks around 8PM with NO GAS to spare...it was completely on empty when I pulled into town! Anson and I reunited and all was happy again! We headed up to "The Twilight Lounge" were we listened to the band and had a good time.
After the show we took all the equipment back down to the RV and drove 3 hours to Aberdeen where we parked in their parking lot for the night. It's a good thing too, because we were SO TIRED! We would not have made it all the way home that night. On our way there we saw a baby bobcat run across the road! It was very cool.
The next morning we stopped in Chehalis at the Denny's and ate some brunch and then drove home and picked up our kids. It was a one heck of a weekend!!!
He is my best friend and I'm so lucky!
