We still had so much to finish and even did a partial DITY...(military term a.k.a~do-it-yourself) which only prolonged finishing that much more. Two days before we left for Colorado, suddenly I was hit with body aches and fever. Of course...you can't move without throwing being sick in there too, at least it always seems to go that way. I took a good dose of Motrin and kept moving on not having time to lie down. I couldn't help but think of many before us, (such as the pioneers) that no matter what came their way they had to keep pushing on...thank goodness we have the comforts of today, it would have been so much harder.
Goodbye NM house...it has been fun.
So back to the longest move of my life...when it rains it pours. We finally left NM about mid-day last Tuesday. Normally a 6 hour trip took us 9 hours to do. The winds were blowing hard and strong that day and being that we were towing a u-haul full to the rim...it was a scary sight to see my van with family inside swaying side to side along with the tow. We had no choice but to keep our speed about 50-55 mph in order to not have the u-haul and van go out of control. With our hazards on the whole way, (yes that was me and my family...the annoying driver's going slow on Interstate 25 N ). By the time we almost were to our destination, fog and mist came upon us which only added to the excitement we were already having. Thank goodness with lots of prayer, Dr. Pepper, cough drops, water, motrin and Drama Queen's iPod music we made it safe and...well...maybe sound!
At least Lil' Bug was able to get some rest.
Strong winds in NM!
