Thats right, I can't believe we are already 1/3 done with this trip!! Thank goodness! It has definitely been interesting so far...we didn't get on the road until about 2 pm yesterday and we drove until almost 10 pm and made it all the way to Flagstaff, Arizona. About 50 miles before we hit Flagstaff it started raining so hard and it was thundering and lightening everywhere! It was really scary, cause by that time it was dark, but thank the Lord we made it to Flagstaff safe and sound. :) This morning we were up at 6 am and on the road by 7:30. We drove through Arizona and New Mexico today and ended up here in Amarillo, Texas. We're staying the night and then we will be off tomorrow and hope to make it to Little Rock, Arkansas by the time it gets dark. Hopefully I will have the internet up and running at my house sometime next week, but until then I will try and keep you all updated whenever I can find free wifi.
On a lighter and funnier note, I almost crashed today! There was a grasshopper in my car (I don't know how the little stow away got in there!) and he was hopping all over the place. In case you were wondering why this is a big deal, I absolutely HATE bugs!! They creep me out so bad and make me feel all itchy!!! So naturally as soon as it started raining in New Mexico this little Jimminy Cricket decided to hop all over me and crawl on my leg!!!! Eeeeeeeeekkkkk!! I totally freaked out, and almost swerved off the road, lol! I had to pull over on the closest exit and fling him off of me, and then I proceeded to try and smash him with a roll of toilet paper! He was a sneaky little fellow though, and I think he hopped away at lightening speed!! Oh well, at least I didn't crash in the process! ;) Tomorrow I am sure I will have more adventures and I just hope and pray that we can make our journey safely and quickly. Please say a prayer for safe travels and that all my furniture arrived in one piece to Virginia!! I am also trying to figure out whats going on with my furniture since it has already arrived there, and no one has called to tell me anything about where it is stored or when I will be able to get it all delivered to my new house. I'm praying things with my house hold goods go much smoother than my last fiasco with the driver not showing up. I really don't want to be stuck without furniture for another two weeks!! Please say a prayer that can all work out also!! :) Thank you all for reading, and I can't wait to get to my new home in Virginia and meet up with some of my East Coast blogging buddies!! :)
