Chick Brain and Road Trips

Chick Brain and Road Trips

It happened on my way home from work on Valentine’s Day. My mind was racing, I was tired, overwhelmed, anxious, and did I mention tired? Then I realized I had it…again. No matter how hard I try to prevent it, it comes on quickly like a nasty touch of the flu – unexpected, unpleasant and downright ugly… Chick Brain.

My mind flashed back to when I told Dan I didn’t want anything for Valentine’s Day – no flowers, no chocolates, no gifts, nothing, nada, zilch! Then just as I was driving home I realized I really did want flowers waiting for me on Valentine’s Day-Chick Brain. Oh and chocolates and dinner would be awesome right now too – Chick Brain. And I bought him a new shirt for vacation so that was kind of a gift… so surely he got me a gift – Chick Brain.

Wow! I’m so glad I was able to recognize the symptoms right away – diagnosis is half the battle when it comes to Chick Brain. When I got home I saw , despite my prior instruction and doubt, a long-stem, yellow rose (my favorite) with a card. He even wrote a sweet note inside…an additional step for a tough cowboy! I was on cloud nine! So after all the drama in my brain, Valentine’s Day was complete… surely I’ll be in the clear for at least another year! Right!

Arkansas, here we come!

This weekend we are heading south to Fayetteville, AR for some weekend vacation fun and some basketball action! ROAD TRIP!

This morning we were a little slow to get on the road. Dan had to move some cattle this morning and much to our surprise we woke up to a winter wonderland! My jaw dropped in delight as I peered out the window to see everything covered in snow… despite the weather forecast of “a few flurries”!

There is nothing more beautiful than a snow-covered sunrise in our neck of the woods. The neighbor’s rooster was sounding his alarm this morning as I took these photos:

We are finally on the road south. The sun is shining and we have our snacks for the road trip – it is not that far away, but it is a well-known fact that every road trip is not complete without snacks!

SOME ROADTRIP FUEL!

SOME ROAD TRIP FUEL!

Can’t wait to see Fayetteville! From what I have heard it is a neat little town and I can’t wait to explore! I will recap the vacation highlights later! Maybe some great food, brews, scenery and hopefully some great basketball!

Have a great weekend!
