From Rochester

Last night I arrived in beautiful Rochester, safe and sound. Despite the spasm in my neck, and the pain running up and down both arms/hands I was thrilled to be back in the city I love. The trip was pretty much what I expected. Two very long days, each capped off with a migraine. My body is still a bit stiff and the spasm is still working itself out.

The only surprise was how expensive the tolls were. It's been quite a few years since I've driven on toll roads but from what I remember you drove through and tossed 35 or 40 cents into a big funnel basket every so often. I was sure the price had gone up so I packed a few plastic bags full of nickles, dimes and quarters so I would be ready. I had seriously underestimated the rate hike. By the time I was in Wisconsin and past all the toll roads I was $35 lighter.

Now that I'm here my head is full of things I want to do, people I want to see...I hardly know what to do first. The weather is gorgeous and so far today is migraine free. I'm now connected again and ready to return to regular blogging. Is it weird that I missed it so much over the past week?

How was your week? Did you have a good holiday?


  1. I hope your experience at Mayo goes well. Have a great visit with your family!

  2. Hope you can afford your trip after the toll fees! :) Good luck!

  3. Well done on your safe trip! Best Wishes from here on in!
