Pardon the cell phone picture.
After what seemed like years, (actually about 17-18 hours) we finally arrived Saturday afternoon. We’re almost unpacked and settling into our new home. I am in love with our new house and simply can not wait to begin the REAL decorating.
Maryland is nice for what I have seen so far. I already know how to get to Target and back without my GPS =)
We are next to the bay so, there will be lots of sitting on the deck to be had. With a wine spritzer, of course.
I did have a job interview this morning. While I am looking forward to returning to work, the firm I interviewed with was not for me. I will have to continue searching for a job.
I do believe I am going to write a book for small town people moving to a big city. About interstate driving. See, I’ve never driven on an interstate except when traveling long distances. This whole exit lane only, left exit lane, 3 & 4 lanes thing is new to me and I about got run over this morning. I know the speed limit says 55 but, I thought I was right smack dab in Talladega.
I went to tour a daycare and was leaving. Their parking lot was big (and full) so I didn’t see the “exit”. The “entrance” was wide enough for two cars and their were no signs so, I went out the way I thought I was supposed to. Big mistake. This woman coming into the daycare flipped the frick out on me and was yelling…and gave me the bird. WTF?
Since I arrived so early for my interview, I went to Chik-fil-a for breakfast (my all time favorite). They did NOT have my chicken biscuit n gravy! I was given nasty chunks of “sausage” and watery mess these people think is gravy. But, their sweet tea was good. So, God bless you Chik-fil-a.
And, to top it all off I went to a liquor store Saturday afternoon. They don’t sell beer & wine in their grocery stores. I get in there, grab my items and stand in line. When I get to the cashier, they swipe my ID through a machine and it was DECLINED! My ID was delcined! Uhh – wtf? How does an ID get declined!? The gentleman behind the register said that “they had gotten into trouble” and had to swipe everyone’s ID. I still have no clue why my ID was declined, he couldn’t give me a reason. It’s not expired. They wouldn’t let me buy the beer so, I had to leave it at the counter and leave. Talk about freakin’ embarassing.
We still lack a proper internet connection so, it may be a few days before I am back. But, when I do return, I’ll have tons of pictures.
