I’m so concerned about my wife having to travel a long distance to gather me, my belongings and one of our furry children to take us home for the holidays.
She will be traveling by herself from Quasqueton, Iowa to Macon, Georgia. About 953 miles.
She’ll be pulling over every now and then to take a nap and stretch her legs. This concerns me very much.
I feel guilty about her coming especially without another person. If my car was more dependable, I could drive home. But buying a newer model is not an option.
Renting a vehicle is what I wanted to do, but the renters don’t take cash nor a debit card. That’s not fair.
I was going to ride the Marta train but my cat is too big plus if he was smaller we’d have to get off it after 7 hours. Can you imagine a small cat inside a carrier that does his business in the carrier plus no way to drink and shoved under your seat and you can’t open it to give it water or food?
I can’t fly either. Maybe I can take a bus but would they allow pets and where would we put them?
No other options. Phooey!
She’s coming down. Spend the night and we drive home. That’s a lot of strain and exhaustion. At least I can help out with the driving on the way back.
The plans are for me to stay 3 weeks but I’ll have a hard time about going back because it’s so lonely without my wife until the following month.
Why we are living separate you ask? Because my father is up in age and feeble. I said I’d stay until he passes. But since I’m getting on up in age, I might can change that idea.
How many people do you know that would travel that far to get someone to take back with them? She sure loves me a lot. Especially if she’s doing the traveling back and forth twice. Gosh that really bothers me. It’s not fair to her.
Am I really worth it? I want to go. But feel bad for her. It’s dangerous, can get lost and health issues could get worse, then there’s the weather and the virus.
I know she’s planning to avoid public areas as much as possible and she will wear her masks when getting gas or the pit spot. And she’ll eat in the car. Which is good.
I’m ready to stay home in Iowa. I’m hoping my family will not disown me for abandoning them. I feel caught in between a boulder and another boulder.
Still concerned about my sweet young wife and her traveling a great distance.
