Georgia is a Black Hole

I left David's house at 11am on Friday morning. I stopped at Cracker Barrel for some yummy breakfast and then headed out to Florida. According to mapquest, the drive to Gainesville should take 5 hours from Charleston. I was super exhausted from not sleeping much (the neighbor's dog was barking consistently through the night). It seemed like I was driving for forever. I pulled off at a rest stop in Georgia and that's when I noticed my completely toasted arm! My body is freaking out because this isn't supposed to happen until at least June.  :)

I fell asleep at the rest stop for about half an hour. I decided I had better get going so I could make it to Saara's on time. So I started driving again. It felt like I couldn't get out of Georgia. I was driving and driving and driving and driving...

I finally arrived in Gainesville at around 7:30pm. How it took me 8 1/2 hours, I'll never know. There was construction on all the major highways, but that shouldn't have tacked 3 1/2 hours onto my trip. The only explanation I have is that there is a black hole somewhere on I-95 in Georgia. I'm convinced.

It was great to see Saara. She looks well and is happy. Her fiancee, Eric, is very nice. They took me for pizza and ice cream and then we went back to sleep. It was then that I realized I'm completely unprepared for Florida weather. I was so hot in my regular pajamas that I had a tough time sleeping. BOO!!

The next morning, Saara and Eric took me to breakfast at this local restaurant called The Jones. It was really good. If you're ever in Gainesville, check it out. We stopped randomly at this estate sale and I found a cute little lion beanie baby *yay* 
We spent the rest of the afternoon lounging around Saara's apartment watching Ocean's Eleven and the X-Files movie and napping on the couch. I'm so glad I'll be less than 2 hours away from her. 

ps I'll post pictures when I figure out how to hook up my camera to this mac.
