Homeward bound

We stayed in Des Moines, IA last night and are only 5 hours from my new home. My sister-in-law is out garage sale shopping and will be on the lookout for things I still need. She and my brother have been bringing furniture over this week which is super awesome!

Mav is sooooo tired. He can't relax in the car so he's pretty exhausted when we get to hotels at night. Hopefully he sleeps good tonight.

I'm still a bit overwhelmed myself and could use a vacation :)

Heading to Nebraska

Made it all the way to Laramie, WY last night. Drove through a rain storm for about an hour which cleaned all the bug carcasses off my car. It also got some water in my rooftop carrier though. The wind here is so icy! I wasn't prepared for that kind of cold.

We are aiming for Omaha tonight. We best get on the road soon!

Trip Tunes for Today

Day One

Made it through the day.  Took a couple hours to get the car loaded properly and had to leave behind several items that will need shipping.  I decided I couldn't leave my dog behind, so I took a rental in El Paso, IL that will allow him to come with me.  More about that later.  We left about an hour and a half behind schedule and reached tonights hotel around 12:30am Mountain Time.  Downfall of driving east - time zones work against you.  Mav did okay in the car, he's pretty unsure of what's going on.  He's wearing himself out with worry.  I still wonder if it was the best idea to bring him.  But the choice has been made, no looking back, right?

Tomorrow I will call an old high school friend who lives in Utah to see if we can swing by for a visit.  My 10 year high school reunion is on Friday, so it'd be like having our own little reunion.  It'll add some time to the trip, but how often do I "swing by" another state?

Summit Christian Center was so awesome to gift me some gas and food funds plus munchies!!  Super thankful for that!

Well, seeing how's it nearly 3am where I am, I should try to sleep.  Another long day ahead!

The Puyallup Thing

Got to spent the afternoon with my brother, John, at the fair yesterday. The fair seemed to have less going for it this year, but we had fun anyway. Not sure when I'll get to Do The Puyallup again so I made sure to get pictures.

To the Zoo!

Last weekend I enjoyed some time on the greens with Callie at the Putting Zoo. I want to kidnap her and take her with me to Illinois. She's such an awesome woman and I'm glad we became buddies this year at school. Then we both dropped out, ha. I can't convince her to road trip with me either - that girl works and works.

That's my blip for now.
