Today was mostly uneventful. By that, I mean that I was pretty unmotivated to rouse myself to take pictures or think of witty commentary. Partly because we are crossing back over territory we've driven several times in the last couple weeks. Also partly, I believe, because it's Sunday, and I just felt sleepy and lethargic. It's supposed to be a day of rest, right? We listened to a couple church sermons on the radio this morning, one was direct from Moody Bible Institute. We're on the I-80 route from Iowa to Ephrata, PA (our stopping place for tonight).
Mr. Trucker rudely awakened me from a nap when he stopped for lunch in Gary, Indiana, and we walked a couple blocks to THIS place

We did some shopping at WalMart yesterday. WalMart is the truck driver's shopping center of choice, because it's the only place I know of which consistently has plenty of truck parking, and will allow trucks in its parking lot. We picked up some microwaveable bowls and a microwave pot. We're going to TRY to make more meals in the truck, although the packaged microwave meals aren't necessarily any healthier than what you can eat at Denny's or the Country Pride truckstop diner. They are, however, less expensive. Whenever we do eat out, Mr. Trucker likes to play this little game called: "Let's See If We Can Keep It Under Ten Dollars". He's such a tightwad. It's a good thing that he is, cuz I lean more towards the spending side of life, and we are trying to really sock away a pile. I also bought some Quaker Oats original oatmeal to cook in our new pot. I'm looking forward to tomorrow morning, just so I can try it out.
As we drove east through Indiana this afternoon, I was on the lookout for a billboard we had seen there two weeks ago, so that I could get a picture for the blog. While I was waiting, I spotted this one, always a good reminder

I spent part of today working on these little items, halloween costumes for two of Sassy's cats (I'm sparing the nursing mama the humiliation of being squeezed into one of these)

Here's my brilliant revelation for the day. I had this sudden thought and I said to Mr. Trucker: "We have to be saving a fortune on toilet paper!". When there were five of us living at home (three of them women), we went through a TON of toilet paper. A ton, I tell you! Now we're not buying any. One of these days we'll sit down and figure out just how much this is saving us, but not today. Five states in one day has got me all worn out.
Today's silly sounding place name: Cuyahoga, OH.
