We got a call the morning before our stuff was scheduled to arrive. The incompetent person on the other end said that our stuff wouldn't arrive till the 7th. 4 days late. Here's how we've been living.
But, we're trying to make lemons out of some pretty bitter lemonade. Yesterday I turned the big 3-0 and instead of moping, I realized all the things I have to be thankful for.
3 beautiful, rambunctious kids
a wonderful husband who adores me :)
a gorgeous home with enough spaces for all of us
a brand new (SECURE) job
fabulous parents who are also great grandparents
And after I was finished being thankful, we took ourselves on a mini plantation tour!
We went inside this plantation, Oak Valley. It's the one from the Beyonce' Deja Vu video, Interview with a vampire and many other things. We also drove by another plantation, but it was closed. I can't wait to go back and tour it because it doesn't look like it's been updated at all.
On the way home we drove down Highway 1 (does that mean it's the first highway ever? I'll have to look it up), and we saw plenty of alligators just hanging out in the swamp. DJ loved it!
Hopefully our stuff will be here on Wednesday, and then we'll be able to finish up with part 3!
