Goodbye, Hello

August 4, 2011

Not much to report from Thursday. We dropped Sarah off at the Sacramento airport and then … well, we didn’t find much of interest in Sacramento. We spent about an hour in a pretty cool train museum (the biggest in the country, it claims), had an outstanding lunch at a kosher vegetarian mediterranean restaurant called Carmita, and then took a quick hour-and-40-minute drive to a Motel 6 in Lake Tahoe where we dropped our bags in our room and headed straight for the motel pool.

OK, I do have one thing to say. There’s a very good reason that Motel 6’s slogan is “We’ll leave the light on for you” and not, say, “We’ll leave some shampoo out for you” or “We’ll leave an alarm clock in your room for you” or “We’ll leave you a room that doesn’t smell terrible.” Because, you see, the lights-on thing is true. The others, well …

Anyway, the two most significant events of the day were: 1) the departure of Sarah, of course, and 2) the beginning of the return trip. Heading east from Sacramento to Lake Tahoe turned us in the direction of home, a bittersweet turn as every stop along the way now will bring us closer to our own beds and the people we love but will also bring the trip closer to its end. Perhaps most important, this development completely neuters my threats to turn around and take Sam home if he doesn’t behave.

Anyway, instead of boring you with the details of the trains and our lunch (seriously, it was delicious), I’m going to turn the mic over to a guest blogger: my lovely wife, who will be sharing her thoughts on the week she spent with us.

Her guest post will be up shortly.
