We made it to Texas! After a whirlwind of a week, traveling, eating crappy, and sleeping on the floor – we are in TEXAS! Things have gone crazy smooth so far. We heard horror stories from quite a few people before we moved. “Your stuff will get lost.”, “You will be sleeping on the floor for a month!”, e tc. etc. etc. I must say, I guess we lucked out! The Hubby picked us up from the airport on Wednesday night. We drove to Del Rio, Texas on Thursday and got the keys to our new house. Then Friday morning our stuff showed up! Sure, a thing or two here and there had a small ding or scratch but I am not complaining! The only thing I am a bit flustered about is the washer and dryer I bought before we moved is broken. I’ve toyed with the idea of sending a nastygram to the people I bought it from off the classifieds… but decided that’s not going to do a bit of good now that I’m over 1,000 miles away. And I guess there is a small chance that it got broken on the trip to Texas. Oh well, you win some and you lose some when it comes to bargain hunting! Our house is actually bigger than the one we left back home. And it is in really good shape. I was pleasantly surprised. I just might have a hard time moving back home to my itty bitty house in Utah!
The few days without our stuff was rough for our little one. She was like a caged cheetah for sure. It was NOT fun. But her toys showed up and she has been a happy little camper. Even though she does ask to go to “PaPa’s house a few times a day. She also walks around saying, “Papa Ewwtah (Utah), Me Texas”. She may just be grasping what this “move” word actually meant. We left piles of snow and 20+degrees in Utah. The weather has been in the 70’s since we got here, and it is funny to see everyone walking around in their coats and boots. We pulled out the shorts the second we crossed the state line! We are definitely here for pilot training – planes are buzzing overhead NONSTOP. And not just a few planes. Lots of planes!! Since I worked on an Air Force base that was home to the fighter jets, I am used to noise. But this is a different noise. It’s more of a buzz, and something that I will definitely have to get used to. Also, our new yard situation is a little bit prickly to say the least. There will be no barefoot summers around here that is for sure! We finished unpacking yesterday, and I can definitely say I still hate moving! But now that it’s over with, I am looking forward to getting out of the house and exploring a bit! Oh, and I have only had one “What the crap are we doing here?!” break down since we arrived. So I’d say that’s pretty good.
