Okay folks, another quick post… I’m really tired. We got to Los Angeles, but the next bus to Pasadena won’t depart until the morning! We didn’t want to call up Dad and ruin the surprise for Mom, so we’re just going to take the next bus out. I hope Rick and Kaitlin are okay and not arguing all the way through. Rick has this attachment to all of his cars, and this is one that he cannot fix himself. I mean, he had diesel in his gas engine car!
You’re going to have to tune in tomorrow to find out what’s going to happen to us. Right now, Megan and I were just talking about what she’s going to be doing with her life, and about Rick and Kaitlin and what’s going to happen. Losing this car–which is the most likely scenario–is a big deal for Rick. I don’t even know if Kaitlin and Rick are going to break up over this incident. I’d hate to be the catalyst. I feel like I’m the one who caused all this because it was my idea to do this road trip, but ya know what? If their love and bond was really strong, I think their relationship could survive… I hope it does. I’m sure other people have had much worse things happen in their relationships and still made it through. It’s only a car, after all, but then, we’re talking about Rick. I’m biting my nails here, people!
I don’t want to sign off here today though, without a Zen quote, it’s another one from Louis L’Amour, “Nobody got anywhere in the world by simply being content”. In a way it’s a good thing that Kaitlin pushed us out our comfort zone. I mean, I didn’t realize how much I wanted to be there for my mom on Mother’s Day if she hadn’t put that diesel in the car. When I realized there was a possibility of us not making it, I really became determined and found another way to make it happen. Actually it was Megan who found the bus station, but Rick said he’d never set foot in one of those. The decision to split up into two groups was tougher than I’d expected. Rick and Kaitlin will follow us as soon as they figure out what to do about the car, and personally, I’m glad not to be there for the inevitable conversation between those two crazy kids.
But as Rick would say, “Take care ya’ll.” Hope your Mother’s Day goes well. I’m really looking forward to mine! I plan on having another post for you tomorrow, and hopefully, I will be able to tell you how Mom handles the surprise! See ya tomorrow!
