We have made it to Minnesota and got the car thawed out. It started right up after a night in a heated garage. We have about 80% of our things out of the truck and into the new house. I have met the land lords and they seem very nice. We will finish unloading this morning take the girls on a tour of their new school then begin the adventure of finding homes for all our things. Alot of the boxes are labeled well so it should be sort of easy. Not sure were my quilting table will be just yet, but have a couple of options. I got the fabric I had won in the blog give away. It's very pretty, but then isn't all fabric. I will update more in a couple of days when we have internet again. They are supposed to come out on Tuesday I think.

Ok so just a quick update for those who are checking. We have made it from Dallas oregon to Souix Falls South Dakota. Here's the kicker. The trip has been for the most part uneventful until this morning. After 5 years we forgot our car does not like the cold, so when we got up this morning the stupid thing wouldn't start. We loaded the girls and the dog in the u haul with Rich's brother and they are headed to his house which is only about 2 1/2 hours from here. Rich and I are sitting in the hotel room waiting for the tow company to come and see if they can get it to start or if we need to have it towed. We did discover that we have a tank heater and that it is plugged in now to hopefully warm things up enough that when they get here it will start and we will be on our way. It's that darn Murphy's Law. Though we had left him behind, but I guess he was just napping until now. lol. We are still all safe and that is all that really matters. I will try to post again as soon as I can. We are missing all our friends back in Oregon, but really itching to hold that new grandbaby.
