Not the Quickest Trip We've Ever Made

We got away from Corning much later than we really expected. Then we dawdled and stopped along the way. A lot. By about 8 PM, we had only reached Roseburg, Oregon, where we stopped for dinner. While we could have pressed the remaining 150 or so miles home, we still would have needed to make a stop to pick up groceries, and it would have taken at least an hour to bring the house back up to habitability, said Lisa. So we checked the Holiday Inn Express across the street, and they had rooms at a price I decided we could afford. The front desk clerk was very nice and upgraded us to a mini-suite. So at least it will be a comfortable night tonight, and it is only another 150 miles home tomorrow. We had one day to give and I guess we gave it. I hope it won't be quite as challenging going back south next weekend.
