Whew. It’s been an exhausting, exhilarating weekend folks. Thursday, two moving pods were delivered to our apartment complex, and Terry and I looked at each other and said, hmmm, these are both pretty small. Seriously, we were pretty worried about fitting all our stuff in them. Terry even said that if we could actually fit all of our possesions in these two little boxes, he’d be proud of the un-materialistic life we’re leading. But, miracle of miracles, it all fit. Barely. Like, really barely.
We left Florida on Saturday (only 3 hours later than planned, so not too bad) and drove straight to New Orleans. We didn’t get in till pretty late so we just went out for dinner and dessert, but let me tell you, even that was enough to make me a fan of New Orleans. One word people. Gumbo. So so delicious. And then, of course, some beignets from Cafe du Monde:
We drove another good chunk yesterday. Terry’s excited about this trip across the country, because unlike the time we drove out to Florida in a giant 16 foot moving truck whilst towing a car, I will actually consent to drive. He handed over the wheel in the middle of the day and snuggled into the pillow for a nap. I was all proud of myself for being so nice and letting him sleep for so long – I practically drove for like the whole time. Only, when I finally woke him up I asked him what time I’d started driving and it turns out I’d only been driving for like two hours. Some stamina I have.
We’re in Dallas now, visiting Terry’s brother and his wife. We’ll be here all day and then have the longest leg of our journey tomorrow. Wish us luck!
