We started off toward Jackson at about 6:45 Monday morning after a long and anguishing goodbye to my Lola (and parents :). It’s almost hard to believe it’s been 3 days already now and while it hurts to be away from them (particularly the fluffy one), I must say I’m enjoying myself pretty well.
Georgia has never really been of much interest to me because I’ve passed through it a ton of times so I always considered myself to have gone there. Technically, yes I had been there, but now I realize I was doing myself a disservice in passing this state off as just somewhere I’ve been through because I’ve driven through.
However, there are also the creepy animals. After GMatt got bit by something last night and had to go to the hospital from his hand swelling, I can barely write this without looking behind me every couple of minutes in a panic at what lurks in the grasses. Regardless, it’s to be expected and I should get used to it for what lies ahead for me is much more wildery.
After that we went to this cool Army/Navy store and then we went out to eat at this Mexican restaurant. When we got back to the house we wanted to have a bonfire, but after they started gathering wood and lit the first batch, GMatt realized his thumb was swelling and he had been bit by something.
