Over the weekend, we decided to head to Long Island to stay with some good friends of ours. Their home is stunning, and we had the most relaxing time. Since I don’t drive, Peter drove us out. Lately, I’ve been making an effort to be a better passenger; no complaining, no bright phone screen, and no sleeping! I fall asleep as soon as a car starts to move-just like my kids. In all of our years together, Peter has never complained about my sleepy habit. But, in an effort to change, I’ve been trying to be more helpful with road trips.
During this trip, I fell asleep on the way there, with the kids. But on the way back, I stayed awake! I’m really proud of myself, even though it’s all rather silly. Peter said the trip felt much easier because I stayed awake; which made me feel excited and a bit nervous. How will I keep this up for every trip going forward?
What do you do to stay awake during road trips? We have another trip very soon, and I would love some tips.
