From Wichita Falls, TX to Tecumcari, NM

Well, I write tonight from desolate Tecumcari, NM. We are about 1/3rd of the way to our destination but rules & regulations prevent us from going any farther. We had to stop her because we are only allowed to drive 7hours a day or 500 miles & the way it all worked out, this is where we had to stop... It is such a tiny dinky little town in the desert... we ate at this podunk little restaurant & the waitress accused me of lying about getting mashed potatoes with my food & was really rude... but it was food & about the only food there was!!!
It has been a crazy week... and it's only wednesday! Monday I took Brok to the doctor & ended up having to just feed him pedialyte for 24 hours & very diluted formula for a week... So that was a fun stress to add to the mix.
And don't even get me started on loading up the car & stuff... we ended up getting lucky and one of the guys in Kevin's class had lots of room in his car for a lot of our stuff... Our car is totally full to the rim & roof!!!
Oh & we now have a crack in our windshield because of having to hit our brakes too hard... isn't that dandy?
Well, from tucumcari i say good night & that only 2days from now, I will be in my home on my nice big bed!!!!
