Hi Kythe, When I would drive to work, I would always hit this one spot about 10 min from my house - all I would do is yawn and wish I was back in bed. I was so knocked out. I usually drive no more than 20 min from my house, longer than that and I'm beat. As far as being a passenger in the car, believe me my eyes are watching same as when I drive. It doesn't matter who is driving, DH or my children, my eyes are constantly 'ON'. Sitting in the car for too long, My legs get twitchy, my back hurts and burns and I need to be out - claustrophobic, I guess. I get very tired from driving and riding and sometimes I get lost in transit. It makes for a fun outting.
Hope your mother is doing well. Glad you're doing the a/c and the water bottle, also leave a bit earlier, so you can take a break or two during the ride, maybe a quick walk or a cup of coffee. Hope you're having a good day. God bless. Alice.
