More like in medias res. I am notoriously bad about journaling--apparently except when it comes to books. Every trip that Scott and I have taken, I've attempted to journal (the old-fashioned way with a pen and paper), but every time it just doesn't work. We've taken some pretty amazing trips: Tahoe and San Francisco; Caribbean Cruise; Texas Hill Country--yayaya; our western excursion through New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, California, and Arizona; and our latest trip to Taos for the S. family reunion.
As we are getting ready to embark on our trip to Alaska on Saturday, I wanted to get this set up. It will be a real feat if I can keep it going. But most importantly, we have so many things to laugh at and remember about our vacations that I don't want them to be lost. Scott has a much much better memory than I do. And I could go ahead and journal about our Valentine's trip to Taos three years ago when we got food poisoning from the restaurant where Juan Extraordinare was entertaining us, or of Lucillo on the cruise saying "Peppertime," or of driving through the entire Yosemite park AFTER the sun set. But I want the memories to be fresh. Oh whatever, I may post some about our January trip and our Taos trip. But then again, given my proclivity for procrastination, probably not.
Either way, here's to many happy travels.
