We have arrived.
The trip out was eventful, of course, but we made it in one piece with no trouble. After a late start on Thursday, we got to Des Moines. Both Mike and I were tired and hurting from the packing and cleaning, and the cat was ready to stop as well, so we stopped and got a hotel room for the night. Having AAA does have its advantages, and with a discounted room – I think the discount came to about $5 – we went down to the pool to swim and then ordered food and fell asleep.
Of course, we slept in later than we had planned and then headed out for Omaha. After lunch of hamburgers complete with hamburger-cupcake dessert, we went to the zoo and then out for dinner. After that, we played in the yard and then with the neighborhood kids.
Mike and I slept down in the basement but were distracted by the Wii, and so got another late start on Saturday. We made it home by about one.
Saturday night I went to a friend’s barbecue and then had to be up early to start my new career as a Sandwich Artist. Not to brag or anything, but I’m a much better sandwich artist than the other new kid who were training next to me. I just sort of jumped right in and began creating and the other guy hung back. I’m not going to lie, it’s going to be interesting work. Not particularly challenging, but I feel as though I can figure out some way to spice my days up.
Ah, Colorado. We shall see how it all goes. Well, I hope.
I’m still spread out, not quite settled in. My stuff is all over this house and I still have a garage full of things at Mom’s to organize. I’m waiting for my three suitcases to arrive via UPS and once they do, things should get a little bit better. Hopefully.
