I've arrived safely in Virginia. Two days ago, Justin and I loaded the dogs up in the car, in Texas, and over the course of the last two days, we drove 26 hours, covering over 1600 miles, to get here for the holidays. Towards the end, I was hard pressed to remember why we thought driving was a better idea than flying- but we made it.
Actually, the drive wasn't a fraction of the pain that I thought it would be. The dogs did great- no carsickness, didn't pee in the car, quiet and well behaved the whole time. Justin was in a really good mood for nearly the entire ride.
**So, the rest of this post I have deleted, as my mom pointed out that it's probably not a good idea for me to be posting rants about the Air Force, as they are paying all my bills right now as I work on my freelancing career. It felt good to get it out of my system, but now I'm deleting it so it doesn't come back to bite me, or more importantly, my husband. Despite my complaints, the AF has been very good to us. Yay Air Force.**
Anyhow, I'm very happy to be home. Gotta go finish my Christmas shopping now!
