Road Trip Pit Stop Oil Check

Hi guys! It's time to cruise into the mechanic for an oil check to be sure we're moving forward in the best shape possible. Wouldn't want to stall out on the way along the A-to-Z Highway!

The holidays have been a busy time for all of us, whether because of gatherings with friends and family, time spent shopping and preparing feasts, children vacationing from school, finals, or even work deadlines before the end of the year. So if your visits to your A-to-Z friends slowed, there's no shame in it. Get that engine check, make sure your spark plugs are in working order, and continue along at whatever pace your speedometer is comfortable with.

If you need to take an extended pit stop, grab some eats at a greasy spoon, nab a night in a motel, that's okay, too. We hope to see you on the road when you're able! Above all, have fun and stop to enjoy the tourist traps.

In the meantime, I'll continue cruising along with my fantastic Road Trip partners, Tina, of Life is Good, and Nicole, of The Madlab Post. I couldn't ask for two better ladies to Road Trip with.

Honk if you're still taking part in the A-to-Z Road Trip!

  1. I certainly loved being part of A to Z lat year. I have my theme picked out for this year along with a couple hundred post specific photos. I am planning to begin framing my posts soon because I know how hectic it can be doing it during that 26 part stampede.

  2. Honk honk! hopefully! Great post Shannon!

  3. I can not tell a lie I crashed out and fell by the wayside . . .

    I will be back to do yet another A to Z this year, but it may well be my last . . . . . The mind and body are not what they were back when I was young and bouncy.....

  4. Honking as you drive by, cheering, but my car lost a wheel..if you don't believe me, the story is at my blog.

  5. Honk! In UK English this is also the sound a goose makes. Toad in The Wind in the Willows used, "poop-poop" for a car horn. How long will it take for our two languages to merge again? I am still following some of the A to Z bloggers I followed for the challenge last year and visiting a few others. Getting into gear for April.

  6. Love the honks, but the derailings are okay, too. Thanks for stopping by and checking in, all!

    I can understand it being a big undertaking, Rob.

    Sue, I believe I remember noticing that when reading!

  7. I wonder how big of a sign I have to put near the computer to remember to do this!!!!!

  8. Honk! I'm in the process of finalizing my theme :) I love the challenge; it's always such hectic fun. And THIS year I won't be in school...HUZZAH!!
