+My sister and I switched out on driving Tuesday. I took over again at Albuquerque and drove to the Arizona border. Woo! New state that I had never visited. Upon driving into it, wasn't so impressed. Looks about as ugly, scenery wise, as Texas.
+So Flagstaff, Arizona was pretty cool. I mean, there were some mountains and pine trees. More my type of landscape. We stayed Tuesday night in Williams, Arizona which reminded me a lot of Ruidoso, New Mexico.
+Someone thought it would be cool to go to the Grand Canyon. (I'm not taking blame for that one...) I wasn't all that in to it really, tbh. I mean, it was pretty but I lost interest fast. Plus there were two dogs with us so..arg. Never take dogs on a car ride.
+I had a mini heart attack when I saw that we were 300 miles from Los Angeles at one point in our trip. I thought about Paley Fest and Lisa Edelstein and Hugh Laurie and then cursed my luck for going into the wrong damn state.
+Vegas wasn't what I thought nor imagined. (Wow, this really sounds like I am bitching about the whole thing) We didn't get to go down the strip though because we were still 8 hours from where we were supposed to be going. The Hoover Dam was also anticlimatic because it was tore the fuck up. I wanted Megatron to storm out of there like on the movie. Instead, I just settled for an ice cream Snickers and a few photos.
+After Vegas, there is NOTHING. Well, essentially nothing. I was getting car dementia/caged animal syndrome about an hour after we left Vegas.
+I still haven't been into downtown Reno. My sister is living on a outskirt called Sparks. We spent the entire day moving her massive amount of shit and her doing her decorating tangent. I sat around and plugged in the Sex in the City movie, which is a couple of hours I will never get back of my life. I really didn't know what to do while she was arranging things how she wanted it. Isn't my house. Doubt I will be here but maybe
once a year, if that. I kind of want to punch her in the uterus for moving this far away. She is really the only person I hang out with/talk to. Her role in my life doubles as sister/best friend. I almost cried today while sitting on her couch. 1500 miles sucks! But meh, whatever. Her husband is from here, so if this will make her happy, then I will be happy for her. I just hope she eventually comes back to Texas.
+Other than that, I am pretty sure I may be stuck here for a while. The people in charge of getting my plane ticket have not done so yet. I mean, I don't want to leave my sister. But on the other hand, I just want to go and sleep in my bed for a week. Hopefully tomorrow will just be a day of chill. Saturday, they all want to go to Lake Tahoe. And then someone mentioned San Fransisco some time later. I am seriously wacked out from lack of sleep and two hour time change. (Lame of me, I know)
+Drove to Santa Rosa, New Mexico on Monday night. Stayed in the worst Motel 6 ever. Didn't sleep, at all.
