Well. We FINALLY made it to San Antonio. And when i say FINALLY - i do mean FINALLY! We keep saying we have brought a whole new meaning to the phrase "what a long day", because today has truly seemed like each minute was at least 5! HA!
I'm really too tired to blog much tonight, but let me just say that:
We left Baton Rouge at 9:30.
We should have arrived in San Antonio about 5:00.
We arrived at 10.
Oh, ALSO, we left Baton Rouge in my 97 chevy blazer. We arrived in San Antonio in a rented Saturn Vue.
The Chevy Blazer is chillin at a run down gas station in Beamont. When it died, hubby & i actually PUSHED it ourselves into the gas station parking lot. We are so thankful for the kindness of strangers, i will say that!
I won't go into all the details of what happened & how much of our trip was spent trying to get our car to MOVE! And then on the phone with parents, rental companies & mechanics. But finally around 3:40 we had just loaded up our rental car & realized we were STARVING. No thoughts of lunch time during all that madness! So we had a nice lunch at Cracker Barrel. We just wanted some GOOD food at that point. Oh & a bath & hotel, but yeahhhh...that was another 5 hours down the road!
But we are finally here. And we are VERY happy. I love my husband! Even in the midst of all that craziness, there was zero irritability (with each other - there was plenty at a certain vehicle!!). He is so sweet & kind all the time. And we crack each other up!! I love him so much & am so happy to be here with him!
We are now relaxing in our hotel & ready to start the day tomorrow!! WOOHOO!
A year ago tonight i was spending my last night alone...dreaming of a future as Mrs. Venable. =)
