Twitter Timeline

What does one do during a 16-hour road trip, in a 15-passenger van, with 12 family members and 4 children, to maintain some semblance of sanity?! Tweet of course! Enjoy my little Twitter timeline of events.

And to think we're taking the same trip back in just 27 hours. (And to clarify, the four kids, two of whom are babies, did so awesome!)

: The last hour of this 16-hour trip has children in meltdown mode. And now we're in bumper-to-bumper traffic. Joy!

: Through 15 hours of driving, numerous sing-alongs, and naps, we're about an hour from Phoenix.

: Um, correction, Gallup, New Mexico. We're looking at another five hours. I wonder if the kids might revolt soon.

@seanrjanelle - Surprisingly drama-free so far. Of course iPods and movies are playing a part...

: On the road again. I can't believe we thought this would be a good idea. 12 family members road-tripping. http://tweetphoto.com/11860010

I’m a coffee drinking, book reading, laundry procrastinating, husband and children loving, mess of a woman who believes that chips and salsa can fix anything. We have chickens running around the backyard, a mountain of dishes in the sink, and on any given morning, I have at least 10 school forms that need my signature or initials. It’s a crazy life {I prefer to call it controlled chaos}, but its ours.
