We're here in Mobile. After a morning of getting the apartment ready to come back at the last minute before we're supposed to have people over for supper* while Eli went to work for the morning, we made it in the car and made it to the in-laws'. We are currently awaiting the last of the Beavers to show up (M&S, where are you?). Tacos for dinner. Elsie's in bed.
Grandma and Paw-paw Beaver, as they will be known to Elsie until she starts calling them something else, purchased a crib and put it in M's old bedroom because there is no room in Eli's old room where we usually sleep if we get first pick. So I joked that Elsie would sleep in with M&S while we get to sleep in the comfy bed. Haven't slept in the same room as Elsie since...well, the last time we traveled. South Carolina, I think? Also, the in-laws dismantled M's bunkbeds to make one large king-sized bed, so this should be interesting. King-sized beds make us feel like we're sleeping on different continents than each other. I mean, why not just buy two twin beds (cheaper) and put them across the room Lucy-Desi style? See? I'm just full of tips to save money, short-term and long-term...haha. :)
Either way, it will be a welcome change from our bed at home. I always seem to sleep better when I'm not in my own bed. Weird, I know.
So, that's my story and I'm stickin' to it.
Happy Thanksgiving Eve, everyone!
*Evidently "dinner" is a synonym for "lunch" in the South as Eli is quick to remind me--so confusing since I've used them interchangeably my whole life!
