Thankful to be Alive

Seriously.

Day #1 ~ Not a success. More like a disaster.

Never again will I use a Garmin. I'm way too exhausted to give a detailed story *need my beauty sleep to see hubs tomorrow bright and early* but here's the gist of it....

Made it here to Columbus all the way to my exit with no problems other than traffic here and there. Got off on the right exit and all hell breaks loose. Damn Garmin kept telling me to make a U-turn all of the place and got me so so so confused. At one point I ended up driving down the wrong side of a freeway for probably .... ehhh.. a total of 3 minutes. No exaggeration. I almost killed myself along with like 5 other people. I can still here the squealing of tires in my head and it makes me shudder. Ended up getting lost of Fort and I can't even tell you how I ended up there. I finally found help. I was so worked up and non-coherent at that point that the sweet, sweet MP's physically drove in front of me to the hotel. How embarrassing. I was lost for an hour and 1/2. I wish I knew who they were. I'd be baking them cookies in this little oven in my room.

I called my mum when I finally did get into the room *which is very nice by the way* and cried for about 10 minutes. She told me to go to the bar.

I better learn some common sense real soon or else I'll never make it...

Oh girl, I'm so sorry! Thats aweful...Was it on base you got turned around? Because they have a lot of one way streets there and it even confuses me! I hate going there alone:p I work today until 5:00 pm. What time does your hubby have to go back to base? I don't want to intrude on ya'lls time together:)

My sweet baby! Please be careful.. It has nothing to do with "common sense", it has to do with unfamiliar roads! Love you and have a PERFECT weekend! XOXO!

I only said that after I knew you and the rest of the state of Georgia were safe! Then I suggested a glass of wine to calm your nerves! Have fun!

Omg!!!! Is it the Garmin Nuvi????I just bought mine about 2 weeks ago and it has done that to me numerous time! On the way back down to sanford it put me on a dead end road and took me completely out of the way!?!?!? I was furious!
