Rollin’ down the highway

Montgomery, Alabama
Warner Robins, Georgia
Fayetteville, North Carolina

We’re movin’ on up, north that is, and should make it to DC tomorrow. Tonight we’re staying at a homotel…Let me explain. We’ve got a door entrance from the parking lot and a door entrance from the hallway. So it’s a hotel and a motel combined. Get it? or are the miles and miles going to my head? Whatever. We got free drinks at the bar tonight and are getting free breakfast tomorrow so I’m giving this homotel a thumbs up!

Today we dropped the girls off at the Atlanta Airport. Their “Bop” flew in to meet us and fly them out to Colorado. They’ll be spending one week out there while we’re searching for houses. A bitter-sweet moment, dropping them off at the airport. On one hand, it was hard to let them go so far away without us. On the other hand, one whole week and driving hundreds of miles with peace and quiet, without fights and without crying fits. See the dilemma?

Their Grandma Dee helped paved the way for us earlier this week. She took the girls so we could pack out of our Alabama house in peace, and the girls had such a good time there. It’s going to be hard for them to come back home to boring old mom and dad who never do anything fun with them. They’ve already gone hiking, jumping on bouncy castles, gotten manis and pedis, gone strawberry picking, and I’m sure I’m missing something. They’ll do other great things this week as well, so we’re going to have to step it up to prevent mutiny. Maybe we’ll have a fighting chance since we’ll be in DC.

The cats have actually been very good during all of this driving and transition. I don’t even have a good story to tell about them. Kinda boring, but actually, I’d rather have that than spastic cats who end up bouncing all over the truck peeing on things.

  1. I am glad you have had a good trip so far. Like hearing about your moving adventure. Enjoy that quiet time you speak of 🙂 I hope to be able to experience some of that in the near future. The love of your children never disapates only becomes more fonder while they are away! Send them away! Oh, I kid LOL
    Best of luck house hunting. I know how hard it is. Liam and I just sold and are renting for a year while we try and ecide just where we want to reside perminately. I will say a prayer you find the home you dream of in that perfect neighbourhood you speak of 🙂
