The most beautiful sign in the world

We made it. Jesse, Auggie and I. Baggy Pants and I saw that sign and gave a big high five. I never thought I could miss this place so much. We are not living in a palace but it is a place we know and are familiar with. I learned quite a bit from my adventure in the south. I learned that I prefer the realness of the urban streets and people. It is where for now I guess I belong. Who knows what the world has in store for me in a few years? We are worn out. Gonna finish unloading the truck tomorrow morning. Ugh...My boy can drive. He drove the whole way up. He got to see his little girlfriends. I think that alone cheered him up immensely. So now we are making this little apartment a home for now. The future is full of surprises. My landlord was true to his word. My tv and computer were already to be plugged in the moment I arrived. That made me happy. Doesn't take much to please me. I am a low maintaince chick. Thank God. Thank God for getting us up here safe and in one piece. Still have my glove, scarves and winter coat. My dog is curled up asleep. I just took a shower to wash the road off of me. Thanks for all the encouragement. I am beat. The bed is calling and I am answering. I am home. Peace to all of you. We made it.

Low maintence chicks rock!

Isnt it wonderful when our boys grow old enough to drive US!
My sons driving used to freak me out but it was cos I needed to be in control.
Since Ive gone through so much Im happy to let my grown son take the reins..

Concrete is beautiful!!! I got hired at the 7-11 next to my house so I can walk. I might do Denny's at night and 7-11 during the day. This moved wiped us out.

Whitemist- Shhhh...Don't say the unpacking word...ugh, ugh, ugh.

Butterflies- Thank you...Yes it is great to let you "child" take the reins. I know I am mentally exhausted more than anything. And yes, low maintance chicks do rock.

Brother Frankie- You remind me of me a long time ago. I think we were some pretty bad boys and
