At lunch, my sister informed me that she and her boyfriend were heading to Missouri for the weekend to visit some friends.  And, she invited me along if I wanted to go.  I debated all afternoon as to whether or not I wanted to; I just couldn't decide.  Nathan, Emily's boyfriend, texted me at 4:30: "get packin, we leavin n an hour and a half".  Okay.

We didn't make any other stops until we got to the Days Inn in Lebanon, Missouri, our destination.  I had fallen asleep at some point.  I just couldn't keep my eyes open!  Emily had made reservations for her and Nathan; I didn't because it was such a last minute decision.  They did have a non-smoking room available, and they were able to give us rooms next to each other, only separated by a hallway.

I went to bed immediately, since I had to set the alarm for 20 after 6...
