Arriving at Grandma’s House


Well, we made it to California.  Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona are behind us.  We’re learned that we really like Flagstaff – and they have a university there, so we’re thinking a teaching job.  It’s been funny as we drive through all these places because we’re looking at them as future homes.  We have no idea where we’ll be once we’re done in Scotland, so every university town is a possibility.  Although there are a few we’re eliminated.  No offense intended to people who live there, but neither of us really want to settle in Oklahoma City.  Here’s some scenes from the road…

Anyway, we’re now visiting my Grandma Jeannie and Uncle Chris.  We pulled in last night after spending the better part of the day crossing the Mojave Desert – another place we definitely don’t want to live.  It felt like we were driving for an eternity – add to the fact that we got some bad gas outside of Flagstaff so the “Check Engine Light” was on.  It was pretty stressful because the outside temp in AZ was 115 for most of the desert crossing.  We’re pulling a trailer and my poor little Pathfinder has a check engine light on…and there were LOTS of hills.  Up and down, up and down, up and down.  So we were happy to pull in to Grandmas.  Tonight the family is getting together for pizza.  Everyone should be there: Grandma, Uncle Chris, Aunt Cori and Uncle Terry, Greg and Faye, Scott, and the kids!  I’m very excited to see how they’ve grown.
