Oh yeah, and a side note. The previous post said that we were leaving on the 24th. Well, the army decided to give us a 4 day extension, so we could tie up things on our end, and have a little bit of an easier time with the move (which was very nice, I might add), but neglected to tell us this until MONDAY EVENING!!! Oops, kind of a big oversite - My mom already had her plane tickets, we had moved all the larger furniture out, and packed EVERYTHING! Oh well, this was our first test at being flexible. I hope we passed!!!
WE'RE FINALLY ON OUR TRIP!!! We left home today at about 6:00 pm, and headed up to Columbus! We're staying at the Holiday Inn by the airport, and seeing my hubby off to the military tomorrow morning. The truck is all packed, and our rental is all clean. Holy cow, it was a LONG day!
We went to Serpent Mounds today, and it was SO COOL! My hubby has had it on his "to see" list since he was 12! It was quite impressive :)
Then, after cleaning and packing, and finally making it to the hotel at 9:30, the kids got 15 minutes in the pool before it closed at 10:00 pm. It's now almost midnight, and I just wanted to post a quick picture of our rig before I go to bed. You'll like it, I'm sure!!! Just be glad you're not me - LMBO!!! Look how high our trailer is loaded! We shrink wrapped the load into the trailer, then used some kind of a tie down, then more shrink wrap, then a tarp, then more shrink wrap, then a cargo net, and a few bungies. It's not going ANYWHERE! It's rock solid :) Hehehehe.
