On The Road Again!

Yep, we are on the road again!   It is amazing that we were able to get everything done with the house.  Almost everything we own has been donated, given away or sold.  Mama painted two rooms, plus painted trim for three rooms, she did landscaping, and shredded tons of papers.  Dad hung doors and trim and finished a bathroom in the basement.  There were lots of little things that they also did and all of this was done in six weeks. 

We left this morning at 10:15.  Mama thought she might cry, but she only got a little misty-eyed when she said good-bye to the house as we pulled out of the driveway.  It is strange that we will not be back again.  I guess it is possible that if it doesn't sell and Dad is sent somewhere we can't go, we may go back for a month or two.  We really hope it sells though so that we don't have to worry about it.

Come on Dad.  We are waiting!



Scout is ready to go.

 Today's drive was a short one. We didn't know for sure what time we would be ready to leave, so we made reservations in Carthage, MO.  It is four hours from home, but after stopping for gas and then a lunch break, it took us about five and half hours.

We are staying at a place called the Big Red Barn. It is a nice campground.  They gave me and Scout treats and they gave the folks homemade cookies.

 Mama fixed her favorite traveling food for dinner.

This is a quick and easy dinner on our travel days.
Tomorrow, we should reach Texas, but not Houston.  We decided to have three shorter driving days instead of two long ones.
