Remember when you were a kid?

Remember when you were a kid, you could fall asleep anywhere? Well our little man finally turned this new leaf this week. The other day, my husband was taking a nap and he woke up from our son sitting next to him in bed. Anyway, my husband pulled our son down so that he was lying on his chest. Our little guy fell asleep right there. When my husband got up from the bed, our DS just flipped over to the other side of the bed and kept sleeping.

Then tonight, our DS fell asleep in my arms as I was lying down on the couch watching tv.

I am so glad knowing that our son can fall asleep just about anywhere, especially with our upcoming road trip across the U.S.

Now it feels REAL

My DH ordered our POD today. It should be here by the 5th of November. Once it gets here, we’re going to start packing it up with our stuff. Once we are done packing our stuff in the POD, we can call them up to have them pick it up and they will delivery it to our new address. Today, my DH is getting some boxes, and cashing in our bucket of change! He is also getting our watch batteries replaced, since we need our watches on the road.

We’ve made lists of what we need to bring with us in the car as well as what we’re packing in the POD. There are a lot of other things we have to do like call the utility companies, and have our mail forwarded to our new address. I will be making sure these things get done and my DH does the big stuff.

I also went through some of my clothes and threw away anything I don’t wear anymore. This was very difficult for me since I am such a pack-rat! LOL I am sure I can trim my closet a little more.

It will take us about 7 days (possibly more) to drive to the East Coast, so we’re going to pack at least 2 weeks worth of clothes. We are also traveling with a toddler, so we are planning our trip around HIS schedule. LOL

I am taking our laptop with us in the car, so I am hoping we can find some Wi-Fi areas to log on to the internet.

Auto Insurance

I emailed our insurance lady yesterday regarding our bill. Two months ago, it shot up $14. It usually goes up $2 or $3 every year but the $14 was a big jump. We have not gotten into any car accidents or anything…so I was confused as to why our bill went up. Anyway, our insurance lady basically said that their company is losing business and there have been a LOT of accidents in our zip code – that is why they had to raise our rate! GRRRRR!

Anyway, we plan on switching auto insurance companies as soon as we can. I don't want to OUT the company that we are with but it does rhyme with LARMERS! What sucks is that we've been with the same insurance lady for over 4 years now… I am just confused as to why our rate keeps going up! LOL In the 4 years we've been her customer, we have NEVER gotten into any accidents…
