day two

I haven't even started and Kali is already trying to censor me. This is Wade, by the way. There was much about today I wish to speak of. First being, my lovely wife's inability to wake up. She has this amazing ability to make me think she's awake and when I turn my back, she's right back to sleep. We started out today at Walmart. (Sigh) I'm not really a fan of this place, but this is not a political blog.
Much to our dismay, out long time friend George was found missing some... limbs after yesterday's travels. May he have a speedy recovery.
It's clear from our cereal choices who the adult in the relationship is.Nebraska lingered on for six hours, six long flat, corn filled hours. And then came Iowa, and it's giant windmills and the happiest place on earth, Adair, IA.
We found ourselves in a delightful little restaurant called, Happy Chef. (It looked a lot like
Village Inn). To make a long story short, Kali, once again ended up not feeling so 'happy' after eating out. We asked out server, Matt, to take our picture and he looked at us like we asked him to commit some sort of heresy. So we moved on from that place.
An hour and a half later we flew past Des Moines, and 10,000 hours later finally arrived at Burlington, IA. To compare last night's Motel 6 to tonight's Holiday Express, the extra 25 dollars went a long, long, long way in comfort and niceness and cleanliness, and comfort and room, and cleanliness. So good night world, until tomorrow...
