georgia on my mind

I have NEVER been so glad to see Georgia before in my life. The trip was very interesting. We had trailer problems, bad weather, truck issues and bad traffic[a 14 hr trip took us 28 hrs]. But overall it was an adventure. My friends and I kept an open mind and tried not to let all of the problems get to us and tried to just take it as it came. So we stayed calm and used every ounce of patience we had!

When we crossed the Georgia border, we all were SO happy until we got to Atlanta. The traffic was crazy and we still had 4 hours to drive. I think that was when our patience was tried the most. It took us an hour to get through Atlanta...UGH!

Thankfully we made it safely. In Indianapolis we passed a really bad wreck. There were 10-15 fire trucks and about that many police cars; and only one vehicle was involved. I could not even tell what kind of vehicle it was, it just looked like a tangle of metal. I was praying the entire time we could see the lights of the emergency vehicles for the people in that car. We also saw 4 or 5 more wrecks. I do not know what was going on this weekend. So I am very thankful we were safe.

On a side note, I start my old job back tomorrow. I will be so glad to be getting a paycheck again! I hope everyone has had a great weekend!
