Well, we’re back home. We left Gulfport at 4:00 Thursday morning and arrived home at Adam’s mom’s around 10:00 Friday night. The drive took FOREVER because I could only drive about 55 mph the whole way. Yup—55 mph for 1300 miles sucks toosh. I woke up yesterday morning with leg cramps. We drove through every weather extreme except a tornado & hurricane. However, there were tornado warnings for the first 3 hours of our drive. I had to drive so slow because I was towing our camper with my ranger… the camper is bigger then the Ranger so try to imagine how much “fun” it was. Every single time a semi passed me the wind gust would push the camper, which would pull the Ranger. Let me tell you, it’s not fun fishtailing down an interstate. I almost landed in the ditch twice. THEN when we finally got into Escanaba, only 15 minutes from home, the roads were so icy that the camper wanted to take a corner a lot wider then my truck was and I ended up sideways in the middle of a busy road. We ended up leaving the camper in a friend’s garage for a couple nights because I flat out refused to tow the thing up the winding hills and roads we have to take to get home.
I’m not sure how I feel about being home yet, mostly because the first job that came available for me is a Craps Dealer. Don’t get me wrong, I use to love dealing Craps. The deal is I’m SO not looking forward to my Ex being one of my managers. The thought has caused me more anxiety in the past two days then anything else ever in my life… mostly because he has this diluted idea that we’re friends. WTF-ever. Coming home also means we’re going to have to work our butts off in order not to lose everything we’ve worked for. I’m dreaming that a super fabulous job will surface for me – soon – and will make life a little easier on us. I can dream, can’t I? Plus, we apparently our homecoming meant that mother nature had to dump snow on the area just to make things that much more exciting for us. We were told that this has been a really mild winter. I don’t believe it. It looks like flippin’ winter
Despite everything that’s lead to us coming home early, I am happy that we’re back home close to friends and family.
