Weekend Recap: Awards
Where to begin? Last week was a whirlwind of packers, boxes, movers, trucks, unhappy cats, anxious dogs, and living out of a duffel bag.
Tuesday, they came to pack the house. Wednesday, they came to load it on a truck. By Thursday, we were on the road.
Two cars, two dogs, three cats, and six fish made it 2,170 miles across seven states in 3 days! We made it to Arizona!!! And everyone is still alive. Even the fish. I was AMAZED at how well everyone, including me, did in the cars and hotels.
I have some awards to give.
To Tennessee: The state that spent the most time with us. And is the best protected. We saw two state troopers every 5 miles or so for over 400 miles.
And not a single Walmart.
To Oklahoma: Where we saw the most dust devils (4) and came in a close second in the dead armadillo category with 3. And it also wins the most nothing category. And two Walmart’s.
I just thought it was too cool.
To New Mexico: The prettiest state I think I have ever seen. We actually arrived in New Mexico about 10 minutes before leaving Amarillo. So, you see? Time travel is possible. There were more wind farms in New Mexico.
And finally to Arizona: Where we saw more dust devils, got hit with a monsoon and made record time due to high speed limits and two time zone changes. Our new city of Phoenix
