Evey, I knew what all that meant. I don't eat grits though. I fixed a mess of turnip greens and hush puppies for dh's dinner. I wasn't hungry because I had been nibbling biscuits all day.
Jeannie, I am trying to figure out what animal that is jumping up and down. Our possum still steals the cats food every night. He is one bold possum. The only thing that will make him leave the patio is when I open and close the patio door.

We had rain and thunder storms today.

Jeannie, I would love to be a fly on the wall for your first week here. You are going to have total culture shock. Just give it a little time. On my job I got to console a lot of newcomers. I could literally write a book.

When you are driving in the country and you see the person in the car in front of you waving to the person approaching. Be alert. They may stop and talk to each other--sitting in their cars in the road. LOL I grew up in the country and was used to this, but I have heard many newcomers say, "They stopped right there in the middle of the road and talked to each other." It doesn't happen quite so often any more because we have all these newcomers who are so rude that they blow their horns at people when they do that.

Country people are just going to be country people. Just gotta love 'em!

I am concerned about my husband NCN. He is going to have a hard time with the adjustment, although he says hes looking forward to it, I'm trying to prepare him now.

Best moving tip: pack your bedding/towels last so that you don't have to hunt for them in order to shower/sleep the first night.

And, just to keep in the spirit of the journal:

2 large mugs of hot tea, light & sweet
1 small cheeseburger
I have probably mentioned that my dh went to computer school in Colorado (our daughter had her first birthday there a long time ago). Well the last day of school all the wives were packing up and the husbands had to go to class for a test. Before he left for class my dh cautioned me not to pack the toilet tissue until last. He said one of the men had gone home and his wife had already packed the toilet tissue. We discussed how much she must have wanted to go home. I remember I almost put a sign on the back of our car saying, "NC here we come." When he got home that night, all he had to do was put everything in the car and we hit the road. I don't think I have ever been so tired, packing up all day and running after a one year old.

Oh, and yes. When they ask what coke you want, asking for a pepsi is good. It was invented in New Bern, NC, in a drug store. Someday you can visit the place. We are also really proud of our cheerwine. Have you experienced that yet?
