So here we are

Well, my Texas adventure has begun. To date I have applied for seven jobs with another two ready to go tomorrow. I also know of a job fair taking place on Saturday at a place I would love to work (can’t pass up benefits for part-time workers).

Yesterday, I had a chance to try a cherry limeade from Sonic (very good, next time I am getting a lime-limeade). Today for lunch I had my first Whataburger. While I enjoyed the toppings, Culvers makes a better burger. AND to my surprise and pure happiness, there is a Culvers here. (I thought there were not any in Texas, but I am glad to be wrong).

Let see…what else… Yesterday we did a little bit of painting, mostly primer. We were able to do one coat, but it probably needs a second and the ceiling has yet to be primed. After the priming, it is on to a lovely blue color.

Also, I had a chance to play a little bit of Wii tonight. I think I hurt my arm! ๐Ÿ™‚ The wii fitness age put me at 53, I figure that means I NEED to play often to get in shape.

Finally, my car was having a little trouble on the freeways at the needed higher speeds. The steering wheel would shake and the car was not riding smooth at all. I figured part of the problem was wind, but the other part might be my wheels. (who knows what the weight of the trailer did to it). I took it in today and for very little money (yeah!) they rotated and balanced the wheels. No more shaking!

Thats about it so far.

Here are just a couple of photos from my trip. Most of it was during the night so the pictures did not really turn out.

Here’s a picture of my car at around 9:45 pm before we hit the road. I was waiting in downtown Wheaton for my brother to get a starbucks. We left so that we could beat the weather, snow was in the forecast.

ME! my trailer & a truck.

Made it! I am on the phone calling the uhaul place to return the trailer. I think it took about 20 minutes to unload the trailer.

    I love your blog – it keeps me up to date as far as what is going on in your life. I’m still praying for the right job for you – I know God has one just for you. Seeing your trailer – it brought back memories for me – that is how my personal belongings made it to Michigan when I married your Uncle Mike. Say hi to Lance, Katie and the girls and enjoy your day – Aunt Chris
