We really thought we had it in us to make a longer drive last night but my head was starting to swim pretty heavily at 10:30 last night. It seemed like the sign announcing REST STOP would never come. Just outside Vanderbilt we pulled in behind a giant semi and swiftly locked things up, dove into our pajamas, climbed into the teardrop and crashed.

Like always I awoke before Lisa and went on a bit of a walk and did some acts of neatness in my car. She eventually got up, fixed a loose board on the inside of the trailer, showed it off to the man who had been cleaning the rest stop and we were on our way.

I had gotten up before her and while I felt sort of bad about it, I felt myself starting to fade before she even got in the car so I put myself in the passenger side and asked if she wouldn't mind driving.

I have slept most of the way to Ann Arbor.

Ann Arbor? What is in Ann Arbor?

A book binding store! I had found Hollanders online several years ago. Since we were passing by I asked Lisa if we could stop and see it. It is every bit as wonderful as I thought it would be. Three stories of STUFF. The basement has classes and workshops, the main floor is covered with all the most amazing paper along with book cloth and thread and needles and headbands and leather and $75 bookbinding hammers (um, NO thank you!) and books galore.
The upstairs has stuff for your kitchen which we skipped.

I got a lot of different colored linen thread, a new bone folder and some book fabric and I could have easily gotten a lot more except I didn't want to haul all of it!


There are a lot of other cool little stores that surrounded Hollanders, one of which has wifi. Huzzah!
