WE'RE HERE!!!!!!!!

Oh the joy of not being in the car anymore.......Ruth feels the same way:) It actually wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, which is generally the case. I'm a firm believer in expecting the absolute worst so that it always turns out better than I expected. This way of think has only failed me once and that was my fault.

1-Watching the back tire of the truck go up on a curb and SLAM back down again as as soon as we left the apt. in Durham. Might as well get that over with right at the beginning:)
2-Ruth getting SUPER EXCITED upon see Mike every time we stopped for gas/food. She would hold out her arms and squeal with delight as soon as she saw him regardless if the car was still moving or not.
3-Lyle (my father in law) taking care of sleeping arrangements. It was one thing I was happy to not worry about.
4-Eating catfish and Cajun shrimp in Lake Charles Louisiana..........soooooooo goooooooood!!!
5-Mike's pleasure that the scooter was still standing up in the back of the truck every morning. We kept expecting it to fall over. But it did not due to my hubbies amazing boy scout skills.
6-Us destroying our mouths with sunflower seeds to stay awake. It took mine 2 days to recover.
7-Watching 3 men haul almost everything we owned up to the 3rd floor balcony by basket, rope and pulley. So Tough!!
8-Getting here and really liking the apartment....sigh of relief. Thank you Kasey and Rob for all your hard work!!!!

Truly it couldn't have gone better.


  1. We are missing you all terribly!!! (Alia misses Ruth, Jared misses Mike, and I miss Kelly!) Super sad...but glad you made it alright.

    1. We miss you guys to!! I thought being close to family would help me not miss my friends so didn't work.
