Hello friends, I'm back. Well, sort of - I might not be online much, but I can at least write this update.
On Tuesday we finished packing up the moving truck, and we got on the road at around 6 am on Wednesday morning. Driving in the morning was very difficult, since I was struggling to stay awake, but driving "Great White" was obviously much easier than driving the huge truck; I'd definitely had crashed if I was driving it instead of my dad. He said the 12-passenger van felt like a sports car after getting used to the truck. :)
Anyway, we finally arrived here in Millington (close to Memphis, TN) on Wednesday night and yesterday we unloaded the truck into storage and looked at a house. We're still deciding on which house to rent, so we will probably be looking at some more today. When we move in early July, we'll be bringing the rest of our stuff and moving into the house.
I wish we were close to Nashville instead of Memphis, partly due to the bad reputation Memphis has, as well as some other stuff, but I guess it's ok...all I can say is Millington is a really small town (really slow as well) that's kind of like a more modern version of Radiator Springs (the town in Cars - but this is a bit of an exaggeration)...abandoned lots and buildings, a whole bunch of buildings places that look like they're 50 years old or older...you get the idea.
In fact, I wouldn't be very surprised to see all the people gone soon and zombies wandering around.
Well, I've got to try to catch up on some other stuff while I still have Wi-Fi, so that's it for now - I might include some photos at a later time.
21:05 EST (8:05 CST) update:
We arrived here at the Comfort Inn & Suites in Cookeville a bit ago, and here I am at the desk, on my laptop...wishing I had the time to be online more and do photography stuff, write, and more.
Anyway, I should mention that my parents made a security deposit on the house we looked at yesterday, so we're going to rent it in July. It is a pretty house and larger than the one we're living in now, but I'll be sharing a room with my brothers. Unfortunately, I didn't get any photos of it, but I'll have plenty of opportunities to do that in July and afterwards.
