Duane wanted to take me to the Grand Canyon because I have never been there. The second we got in the car to go it started raining…hailing actually. That should have been a sign. The trip was a nightmare. It was raining and cold and long. Everything I did, everything I said, the way I drove was wrong. He was so uncomfortable in the car that no matter what, it was not going to be an easy day. Once we got there he needed to put his sweats on, but he wanted to do it without getting out of the car? HOW? Then he wanted to drive his scooter without any help – he really can’t anymore. Then there were stairs so he INSISTED I go by myself and leave him sitting in the cold all alone. We were there about two hours and then headed home in the rain.
It was a nice gesture and the thought was there but I think our days of day trips are done!
