1200 Miles

alternate title...
One Mile Too Many

Big news from the Nugget Box...
We moved to Key West!
We'll be in paradise for four months while Dan works on-site on a project down here.
It's kind of amazing, when you think about it.

So, we drove from Virginia.
And I was all set to write a post about how incredibly wonderful my children are.
Best travelers ever.
We didn't have one meltdown, fit, fight, or complaint the entire way.
Until we passed mile marker one.
Literally, we passed mile marker ONE.
And it all came crashing down around us.
The crying, the screaming, the wailing, and the gnashing of teeth.
Times three.
By the time we pulled into the rental office to get our keys,
just a bit up the street from the celebrated mile marker ZERO
and right next door to Bare Assets
- boy, are my children going to get an education -
you could have heard the Nuggets clear back in VA.
It didn't help that the mommy and daddy lost it too.
Tears streaming down our faces we were laughing so hard, actually.
Really, it was awesome.

Hello, Key West!
The Nuggets have arrived!
