Road trip!

Hey all, for those of you who haven't heard, moving day has come. On Friday we had a bunch of people from the ward come and help us completely empty our house and load it all in our truck. We filled the truck all the way to the top and all the way back to the door. Oh, and we filled the little Honda up completely once it was up on its carrier. And we stuffed the excursion as much as we could also, after our suitcases were in. Anyways, we got it all to fit! Well, we had to leave a few things for friends or trash, but we got almost everything to fit! Moving is a shocking realization of how materialistic you've become since the last time you moved. ;-)

And we managed to leave on Monday. As I write this were in a rest stop in Arkansas, about 90 miles from the Texas border. After four days, 30 driving hours, and 2000 miles of hotels and fast food, we're hoping to get into our new house tomorrow night (Texas will take us about 11 hours to cross - a little tonight and most tomorrow). Wish us luck!


  1. What a fun adventure. Hope everything is wonderful in Texas!

    1. Holy cow! Someone actually commented! I didn't think people still read the stuff we write!

  2. I'm not going to lie, your trip sounds horrible to me. But I'm so glad you made it and are safe in Texas. Even more excited to see you guys this weekend!
