Caroline's Crazy Adventure Part 1

I just got home from what felt like the longest 4 days of my life. Let me start from the beginning.

Day 1: I wake up to my mom yelling at my sister to pack and my dad poking me on my shoulder asking where his brown shoes are. I get up, take a quick shower and begin to pack. I thought I had packed everything, I even double checked this time. I had a book, my kindle, my ipod, my phone, a journal, and even a back up book packed in my favorite little backpack, I was ready. It turns out I wasn't though. I listen to my ipod for a few hours and decided I should take out my contacts next time we stop so I could take a nap. Turns out I had not only forgotten my glasses, but also my ipod charger. At that point it was 11p.m and I was really tired and just wanted to get to the hotel. My sister had been in a bad mood all day and really bugging me. So I decided to ignore her when she started saying she had a nose bleed. I thought she was trying to be funny. So finally after a good 10 minutes I finally look over and there was blood every where. I mean everywhere. So my girl scout instincts kick in and I look around for napkins or tissues. When I finally found some and had her leaning her head back there was blood all over me and the back seat. I'm really bad about blood so I was freaking out and my sister was freaking out and of course at that moment my mom realizes she forgot all our dresses for the wedding and she starts freaking out. Yes, that was fun. That went on for about 20 minutes until my dad finally decided to stop at a hotel for the night.
Total hours of driving:9
Miles driven: about 500
Day 2: I don't sleep well in hotels so I got a grand total of 4 hours of sleep. My dad woke me up at 4 and wanted everyone up and out in 10 minutes. After stumbling around for 2 of those minutes trying to find my glasses, I realized oh wait that's right I forgot them. I quickly got ready and ran out the door at the last minute. The car was already running and everyone was inside. Not much happened until my mom decided that we should go shopping, right at that moment. After 3 hours of not finding anything we got back in the car and drove without stopping until we finally made it to our destination. After checking into the hotel everyone took showers and got ready for the rehearsal dinner. (It was for my uncle's wedding.) It turns out the rehearsal dinner was at a bar and I was one of the only kids there. There was only 8 kids and I was the oldest. So I ended up watching the kids while everyone got way to many drinks. That was fun. That all lasted for about 3 hours until my dad decided he had had enough of talking with people and we went back to our hotel room. I passed out as soon as lied down.
Total hours of driving: 10
Miles driven about: 700
Like I said I'm extremely tired so I'm heading to bed. I'll post the rest some time this week.
