Two journeys to Texas subsequent month


by Hope

Thank goodness I plan and put together upfront. This coming month I will likely be taking two journeys to Texas. This has been the plan for months earlier than the monetary crunch.

Fast Flip Journey to Houston

The primary is a fast flip journey. Princess has 24 hours to go from her New York internship to her Houston internship. She’s going to land one Saturday night time in Atlanta; I’ll decide her up after which we’ll leap in her automotive and journey to Houston.

I used to be hesitant to let her take that drive herself. It’s over 13 hours of drive time and he or she’s by no means pushed greater than a few hours alone. To not point out the fast flip will put a whole lot of strain on that drive. She and I are going to group drive it. She’ll get there a bit extra refreshed and able to begin on Monday.

I used to be in a position to ebook a one-way flight with factors, paid simply $5.60. So long as I don’t have luggage, it will likely be the most cost effective journey I’ve ever taken. She is being reimbursed for her journey bills so I gained’t have to fret about fuel, meals, or anything. We obtained her automotive serviced final week earlier than she left for New York Metropolis so all the things is all set.

Her return journey doesn’t have the time crunch strain, and he or she seems like she will likely be snug making the drive again alone.

Everlasting Transfer to Austin

Two weeks after I return from getting Princess to her internship, Gymnast and I’ll load up our vehicles with all his belongings for his transfer to Austin. This will likely be a roundtrip road-trip for me. And I should cowl the fuel and meals for the journey. I’ve already taken the week off work, however will nonetheless obtain my wage. (Grateful for that!)

We’re planning to automotive camp on the journey there. And I’ll almost certainly do the identical on the journey again.

Gymnast and I sat down not too long ago to plan out last issues that should be executed right here earlier than this transfer. And he let me know that I might in all probability keep residence and never go. I might carry a load when he will get prepared to maneuver into his personal place.

And I so appreciated that, as a result of the monetary strain is immense as of late. However with my mother nonetheless alive and my dad’s latest battle with most cancers, I’m going to make the journey. I’ll cope with the monetary penalties. I believed I used to be saying good bye to my mother once I went down final fall. To have one other probability to see her…priceless.
