Seriously, I can't. . .because we are only a little over 300 miles from our new home. After two 500+ days, this is going to be a breeze (I hope I don't jinx us. . .but then again, I don't believe in that stuff so I guess we'll be okay. :)
The drive has gone pretty smoothly. With only a few hiccups along the way. Bubby met his first bee that didn't like him, poor little guy. Fortunately he is not allergic (nothing like looking up ER's in a strange city, just in case you need to get there. . . FAST!) And, Princess picked up the crud the cadets were hacking up at the Air Force Academy on Sunday. (I guess hand sanitizer immediately after mass wasn't enough.) She has had a sore throat and low grade fever. I was worried she might have strep, but yesterday she started with a runny nose. So I think it is just a cold. Which is another great motivator to get to our new home base. I do not like messing around with strep.
Other than that, our trip has gone very smoothly. We were able to check out the Great Salt Lake (stay tuned for this post when we get settled), and today we are driving along the Colombia River in Oregon. I've never been this way, so I'm looking forward to experiencing something new. I am actually quite amazed that we aren't going crazy after this many miles. It is surprisingly enjoyable to see our country, to take in the beauty, and ponder what the people that live there are like.
The shower stopped. It's my turn. Gotta run, I need to get this party started. . .because the next time I post, I'll be in Washington!!!!! Sleeping in my own house (so we won't have our things for a few days) camping out.
Oh, and I forgot to mention the painting. We are hoping to paint as much as possible before the movers come with our stuff on Monday. We're starting off with Tinker Bell Green in Princess's room. Wish me luck!
