Guess who is following in my footsteps and now living in Tennessee?? MY PARENTS! Yep, they loaded up their RV and left Arizona in the dry, hot dust!
My parents came with their RV, boat, car and a small trailer. Dad drove the RV and towed the trailer, Mom drove the car and towed the boat. They made excellent time considering they got a flat tire on the RV in New Mexico, a cracked windshield on the car in Texas and they got lost in Oklahoma. They left Arizona late Sunday night and arrived at our house Wednesday afternoon.
I hope they will not regret their decision to leave my brother alone in Arizona. He has a girlfriend, chickens, dogs and a rabbit to keep him company.
I feel pretty cruddy about him being there with no family. We aren't close- we don't talk, or hangout, or text, or anything. I don't know why, maybe because we are extremely different and five years apart. I love him and I wish we were close but I don't think it will ever happen, he doesn't care enough to make an effort. Who knows, maybe he'll end up out here too and then he'll be forced to be around me and my crazy kids! At least on holidays...
