On the upside I am enjoying the evening at my aunt's house in Fresno. I'm getting the four star treatment here! She picked up a chicken teryaki bowl for me for dinner. My favorite food!! My uncle is out of town but one of her sons (my cousin) came by and visited and the three of us chatted. It was SO nice to have some human conversation after hours alone on the road. So here I have my own room with a big bed and feather pillows. I also have my own bathroom because in this house there are three and a half bathrooms!. She picked up a croissant and some fruit for me to have for breakfast tomorrow. I will take those on the road since she also offered eggs or cereal if I want to make myself breakfast in the morning (she'll be at work by the time I get up). This is definitely better than the hostel. I'm enjoying this a lot!
However, I still feel like some one beat me up. Hurt all over. Muscles tight. I need a massage...or at least some snuggles? Maybe even a pet or two? Just somebody help my poor aching body please! Ow...ow...ow...
