We spend too much time driving.

Cities we drove through* on Christmas Eve:

  • Indianapolis, IN
  • Cincinnati, OH
  • Columbus, OH
  • Cleveland, OH
  • Buffalo, NY

We spent a grand total of 13 hours in a car on Christmas Eve and 5 and a half on Christmas morning, waking up at 4:30 to get to my parents’ house before 10. We surprised my parents by coming into town on Christmas Day instead of on the 28th, as planned.

(No one drives on I-90 in upstate New York at 5am on Christmas morning, we learned.)

Today, my mother and I are hitting WEBS, a yarn shop about 20 minutes away from here. I’m looking forward to going; I’d like to bulk up my stash a bit and I want a good excuse to use my new ball winder and swift!

*’Through’ meaning at least taking the bypass.
