Happy birthday sister!
Moving day. We got up around 7:30 AM and were out the door around 9:00 AM. It was all about the drive today. We drove almost 500 miles to Montgomery, Alabama. We had to drive around Atlanta, Georgia. Would have loved to be able to check it out and explore, but that will have to wait until another trip. The drive was lovely, all interstate. We stopped for lunch and for gas ($3.26 a gallon) at a BP somewhere in Georgia. So grateful the weather is lovely.
We got into Montgomery, Alabama around 5:00 PM (actually 6:00 PM but there was a time change). We are at the Day’s Inn. Already missing resort living as the place is dirty, not filthy but hairs here and there that you know aren’t yours. I’ll have Michael check for bed bugs. The hotel is filling up so I hope it’s not bad.
Michael and I went out for dinner. Ended up at China King down the road. Like we’ve said before, things in the South are very different. The Chinese food was very bland compared to what we’re used to. We had lemon chicken, vegetable fried rice and soup.
That was our day. Hope yours was great!
