When I really should be unpacking....

After a grueling 1,200 mile drive....we are now residents of San Antonio, Texas. We've been enjoying trying to learn the area, getting to know where all the stores are. I checked out the local Dollar Tree and Big Lots today. I may just live at the Dollar Tree. It's the biggest one I've been in!

Anything to avoid unpacking boxes!! We have the kitchen unpacked and organized for the most part. But I can't seem to find the motivation to start on any of the other rooms...other than one of the bathrooms. Every muscle in my body is hurting. I think it's the 3 weeks that we spent displaced from our home. Granted, it was spent in the best way possible, but, we weren't sleeping in our own beds for that long.

Before we left for the big drive, we went up to Virginia Beach to see our good friends, The Littles family. While there, Stephen found a great deal at the commissary on pork ribs, and made himself at home at their Anyone that really knows him, knows that it wasn't hard to predict. This man loves to grill.

After leaving VA, we stopped in SC to see my mom and Oscar. Tucker didn't quite know what to think of her
And then it was off to Texas. We had an 18 hour drive ahead of us. We woke up at 2:30 am and left by 3:10. It surprised the both of us that we actually left close to the intended time. While it was definitely a long drive, we seemed to do it pretty well. Tucker didn't get sick this time. (Oh yea! I forgot to mention that our dog, Tucker didn't take the drive down to SC very well. We're not sure if he ate something bad, or was just overheated. But after throwing up 3 times in the car, he finally started to feel better and was back to himself in no time.)

Concluding this post, I leave you with photos from the drive here.

Somewhere in Mississippi I believe
Somewhere around Mississippi, we started a list of the different license plates that we spotted. I took this before Mississippi spanked Alabama's But we only got to see one other plate from WA state. Brianna loved it.
Along the drive, I saw several vehicles with names of people I know. This one reminded me of my dad, Boyd.
Welcome to Texas!
