I feel like Inigo Montoya from The Princess Bride, but what I shall say is - "let me sum up."
Andy graduated CBOLC on tuesday and we left Missouri ASAP. Andy drove the 12 hours to my parent's in Georgia and we fell into bed exhausted around 2am.
The next morning we unloaded the trailer full of our stuff, met some family at the mall for lunch and left the boys with my sister.
Amazingly, we (barely) beat the traffic out of Atlanta and made it to Ft. Gordon, finally getting to meet our new niece, Britton!
After seeing sweet Ani up and off to school on Thursday we headed toward Fayetteville, NC and the wonderful Ft. Bragg.
And the search began.
We had been looking at houses online for days, but you really can't tell what you are looking at until you see it in person. You have to see the neighborhood, the carpet, the backyard before you know if it really what they are trying to present to you. To "sell" to you, even as a rental.
We got to know the city fairly quickly, and figured out where we didn't want to live!
On a completely unrelated note: Thursday was the 12th anniversary of our first date, so we cancelled the quest at a decent hour and had a date. Slightly different then our first one, (since our first date had peanut butter sandwiches and this one included a hot tub) but I have no complaints! It was a fabulous break in a haphazard week full of driving and searching for a house.
Friday was the day. Beginning bright and early, we were determined to find a house.
And determination paid off. We went from one side of Fayetteville to the other, making sure we had explored every option. But we found it!
When Andy finishes Airborne school in 3 weeks we will have somewhere to live.
Now I just have to figure out how to get everything from here to there. Fun, fun!
