the long journey home
We went to St. Louis this weekend to check out neighborhoods and get some ideas about the area we are looking at moving too.
The trip went well and I met up with an old friend I hadn't seen in ages who lives in the area.
On the way back, however we got caught in some pretty nasty weather. We stopped at 12:30 in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa to gas up and grab some lunch. The McDonalds was closing at 1:00 because of the weather. So we spent the night. The next day the roads were still treacherous through most of Iowa. Too many cars in the ditch to count.
The house is still not sold. We had a showing over the weekend, but they ended up buying a bank owned home. This week my mission is to get the carpets cleaned.
