Bring on the food. I can't travel empty handed. I need a back up plan.


argh. hate that traveling food thing. Good thing you had Fig Newtons along.... Have fun at the conference.


I never remember food. Drinks, yes, food no. Hope you're having a good time!


You missed nothing at that Steak and Shake (F-burg I assume). One of the worst places I've ever been service-wise and I actually like Steak and Shake.


See I'm with you - bring food avoid all hassles like this. So aggravating! Enjoy your trip.


we do a lot of road trips and our rule is if we cannot see the restaurant/gas station from the road, we are not stopping. lol. too many wild goose chases!! it is so irritating!

Were you in Maryland? When I lived there, I felt that ALL the interstate signs lied. Like the Chick-fil-A? Was probably 8 miles off the interstate and required you to go over the river and through the woods. It's crazy. I used to go grocery shopping at a store 5 miles away until someone told me that there was a Safeway down a "driveway" behind a bunch of trees just half a mile from my house. Sign anywhere near the road? Nope.

About Me

  • Carmen Staicer is a whirlwind of energy and execution, who never sleeps and drinks way too much coffee. She works from home as Social Media Programs Manager for SheKnows, and is the mom to six kids, most of whom play instruments, sing or dance and all of whom are much smarter than she will ever be. In other words, her house is never ever quiet or still. A concentration of asthma, food allergies, spectrum disorders and learning disabilities means that she spends an awful lot of time second guessing herself and Dr. Googling, as well as learning to cook everything the family might like to eat. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, boxing (she has her Black Belt in Muay Thai), sleeping, exploring coffee shops, photography, ballet class and cooking. She excels in being a smart mouth and has her major in sarcasm, with a dual minor in BS studies and avoiding laundry.
