Home again, home again, jiggity jog
Well we made it back to Texas. The final weight on our truck and the trailer was over 10,000 lbs. We had to drive between 45 and 50 miles per hour across 1/3 of the country. We left Monday night and finally made it into our parking space Wednesday night around 2230. I haven't got a damn thing done hardly on unpacking, though, because B's been sick and we've both been pretty much wiped out and worthless.
I got the table put together, the stereo set up, and discovered that I left my foot pedal for my computer (very important for my work) back in Georgia. My step-mom is shipping it to me today, so hopefully it'll get here soon.
I did make a run to the Goodwill where I scored a ton of fabric for cheap. Two shower curtain sized pieces for $4 and $5, and an absolutely enormous length of sheer material for $6. I've turned the shower curtain sized buts into 4 panels and will cut the sheers soon.
I had to leave my vacuum behind because there just wasn't room, but our neighbors left us theirs when they left. Wouldn't you know its exactly the same one I had? They also left a charcoal grill, a ton of hangers and all their trash cans, so I'm feeling like christmas came twice already this year between. B coming home and the amazing amount of good fortune we've had acquiring furniture and household goods. I hate to see them leave, because they're really nice people, but I'm grateful for all they've given us as they left.
