New house

Here I sit in an almost empty house at 8 in the morning. Both kids also on their air mattresses, drinking my cup of coffee. We know how to move so we brought our coffee pot, sitting in my one chair looking at our big screen tv that has no cable so we watch movies on Tylers Xbox. All I think right now is, we are lucky we got our house so fast, but wow is it empty, so empty its hard to keep it warm downstairs. The only thing really different about this move is I have some family by me, thank God. We had dinner with my Aunt Mona last night. It was wonderful to relax, eat comfortably, and laugh. Oh and we did get a little loud :-D
My man its on day 3 of signing into this monster of a base. Tomorrow (Friday) we get our furniture. I keep thinking just let me pick a few important things, I want to start over with everything else... BLAH.... How will I make all this crap fit in my house??? It is much smaller then my old house. I'm a little scared right now. But we will make it work, we always do... Home is where the Army send you... I love my man and my kids, I would live in an apartment if I had to. And I would make it work.  wish us luck tomorrow.

We Have Arrived!!

We made it to our first official stop, Plainview Texas, Jerry's parents.
Today was a good travel day. We got a late start but we were so beat. But it all went so smooth. Our day started out with a continental breakfast and some bad coffee at the hotel. So naturally me being the master of the road used my smart phone to find starbucks, and then have it take us there with a touch of a button LOL... It was 6 miles out of the way but so worth it. After we got out wonderful morning JAVA JOLT we were on our way. At our first stop to get gas we were asked by a homeless man for a ride. That always makes me fell bad for them but we have to say no. The rest of todays trip was pretty uneventful. We did get to eat at Jack in the Box for the first time in 4 years so woohoo and yuuummm... About half way to Plainview I started hurting pretty bad so, driving down the freeway I climbed in back with Shelby, that was a pretty site LOL... Then she climbed in front. That had to look way better them me doing it. So i was able to lay down back there and put my legs up. I used the pillow Jennifer made for me for this trip. It is huge and full, full, full. It has been perfect for propping me up. I love it. So it helped laying back there for a while.
Well a while later about 7 hours into the trip Jerry and I were talking and i was drinking some coffee we had just picked up. I was telling him I liked my new mug. Then we realized I didn't pay for the travel mug. So I am the master of the road and a thief... I'M going to have some karma come back and get me....
That's all for now....

Long, Long Drive

Today was a long, long day. We woke early in or hotel and went to our almost empty house. I changed my clothes and ran to my Dr appointment at 8:40. I came back to a huge mess, but it was an organized mess LOL... So Jerry, and the kids worked their butts off trying to organize, empty the house, and full up the uhaul. I walked around throwing out trash and doing the little things, only because I'm not allowed to do the big stuff. I tell ya what, I married the best man ever made. I don't know what  I would do without him. I went and said my good bye to Jennifer. That sucked. I am going to miss her. It also sucked that I didn't get to see Kerri before we left. Any way the housing lady came to do our final out. She was so nice. Boy was she a talker. Then came the big good bye the B  Shelbys BF. That just broke my heart. My poor Shelby was so upset. We are going to miss him.
Oh now the drive. It has been a good drive so far. Tyler playing PSP and watching movies and Shelby making a scarf. I have been playing navigator, or should I say nagivator heehee. I love my phone. I spent 2 hours just flipping from sprint navigation to every other app on my phone. Just paying on it. My phone rocks, its just like a little computer. I am master of the road!!! If you need it I can find it ;-)
Any way I think we left at about 1:30is. We wanted to get to Dallas, butt we gave up at Shreveport LA. We were just to tired. So we will be up and gone by 6am. Well we hope. We should make it to Jerry's Moms no later then 2. For now we say good night. The master of the road will ride again in 5 hours!!!
Chow, chow

Empty House

Today the movers came with the giant truck and drove away with our house :-( it was a very long day, and just a little painful. The last week is catching up with me and kicking my a**. After the movers left and we cleaned up the house a little we went to eat at Jennifers house. We topped of a long crappy day with a wonderful meal and great company. I am really going to miss that woman. The number was after we got done eating my stomach spasmed out in a big bad way. That's my body saying stop doing sh** or I will make you stop. So we hung out there for a little bit. Jerry moved the Uhaul into the garage, Shelby and Ty went bowling with B and Jerry and I went to our hotel room to chill. Now I have a Dr appointment first thing in the morning while my man will be doing the man thing, loading up the Uhaul. Then we sign out of our house at 11:30 and we will be on the road after that. Woohoo, so close!!!
For now its bed time.
Blog ya tomorrow

2nd Day Of Packing

Well today the packers came today for the 2nd day. Everything is packed up now. Its now a three bedroom with random crap and boxes every where. we spent part of tonight putting all of our clothes in suitcases. I still can't believe at all the little things we still need to put together, and gather. Right now we are kicking back watching a movie and doing more last minute laundry. We will be up at 6am to do the finishing touches. They load everything up around 8:30. We also pick up the little Uhaul we will be pulling at 9am. We are almost done with this mess. It gets a little easier every day. Either that or I'm getting numb. The dogs are freaking out. They don't like this one bit. I think ha they don't like this, just wait they are about to be crammed in a car for over a week. At least they are small. I think I am done for the night. The kids are passed out on the couch and my man is next.
Chow, chow yall!!!!
