Saturday - May 29, 2010
After setting my alarm the night before for 4:15 A.M, I wake up on Saturday at 4 A.M. Since I was taking Pretty Girl with me on my trip, I started to pack up her things: litter box, litter, food, food and water bowls and treats. I also had a load of towels going, too so I don’t have to do it when I get home. Once all of her stuff and most of my stuff was packed up, I got dressed and packed the rest of my bathroom stuff. Once my bag was placed in the car, and I did a double check to make sure I had everything I need, I grabbed Pretty Girl and headed out to the car. I wanted her to sit shot gun on her pillow, but instead, she roamed around the car crying as we descended to California at 4:45 A.M. When she stopped crying, I thought she was sitting behind me until I pulled over and found her under my seat. After getting her out, I put her in the carrier and drove to Anaheim.
The hotel I was staying at was the Staybride Suites. I picked it because it was reasonably priced, but mostly pet friendly. According to Google, from my house to the hotel, it was supposed to be a 4 hour and 41 minute drive. I left my house at 4:45 A.M. and including puling over to put pretty girl back in the carrier and one bathroom break, I made it to the hotel at 9:15 A.M. My GPS originally said I would arrive at 9:11, before the two delays.
I will have to finish this tomorrow because my eyes are very heavy after spending all day at DL. So, until next time, and don’t worry, I won’t leave you guys hanging. I’ll probably finish tomorrow anyway. Looking forward to sharing my trip report with you guys.
