January 2012

I'm back! And I'm finally posting pictures from our big move across the country.

Before leaving, we had lunch with these guys.
Our apartment looked like this. Yikes!
I was packed and ready to go!
The movers arrived and made everything look like this.

Then they came to my MIL's garage to pick up all the tools and spare parts.

We had sushi with some more friends the night before leaving. 
Then this happened to my car before leaving town. It's ok, I got a nice new rental to drive 1900 miles instead of my 1991 miata. :D

Then we drove 8 hours to Mobile to see my family.

We had a fabulous shrimp boil for dinner at my grandmother's house (notice she still had her Christmas tablecloth on). 
The next morning, we were on the road again. Goodbye Alabama!
But not without one of these from  Stuckey's first. 
I liked Mississippi. I found cracked pecans, satsumas (if you've never tried one, you need to make that a life goal), and boiled peanuts on the side of the road.
And then we found the most amazing restaurant ever for lunch. Can you see all the animals on the walls? They really like to hunt down there.
What you see here is a fried green tomato, fried okra, a roasted chicken leg, green beans, mashed potatoes, corn pudding, fried quail, and mac n' cheese with a roll and a salad with everything on it. I would go back here anytime. Gladly.
Hallelujah we made it to Texas!
Um, yeah. Texas.
And more Texas.
That second night we got to stay with my husband's Uncle Russell. Yep, his name's Russell Crow.
The next day we got some TexMex in the middle of nowhere on our way to Amarillo. And when I say the middle of nowhere, I mean the middle of nowhere. 
The next day we made it to Albuquerque!
We looked at some houses.

And we picked this one!

 And then the movers brought our stuff back in late January. Oh my, I still don't think we're completely unpacked.

And I think that was January. In the meantime, we lived in temporary lodging on base for about two weeks (long enough for me!) and learned how to deal with the cold wind. We got all our inprocessing done, and hubby prepared to go TDY (temporary duty assignment) to Ohio for training in February. We both attended orientations, and made some new friends right away (perks of military life). 

Continue to February . . .
