Normally when you move, there are two parts, the moving out and the moving in. The moving out this time was pretty extreme. I'm happy to report that the moving in, however, was a delight. In one day, we had every box unpacked and completely put away. One DAY and we were done. This also meant that by this morning, I was completely freed up to do whatever I wanted to do which has happened perhaps oh...ten times since I became an adult. What I wanted to do, is my most favorite thing to do, and that was to spend the day with my two favorite children at this moment, Gabe and Liv. So I got up at 6 am to drive down to the city that we *just* moved away from for one last fabulous day with them. I called their mom on the way and suggested that we might go to Chuck E Cheese or the movies or the Science museum or something like that. So guess what we did today? Yup, Chuck E Cheese AND the movies (Kung Fu Panda) AND the Sugar Sands Science Museum AND something else (BJ's trip complete with one toy buying token each). Are they great negotiators or what? We had a blast. We said our good bye's for now and although it was hard to drive away, it still was good because I know that when I am with them, I will be able to be more "with them" due to living lighter. Or at least I hope so. We don't officially hit the road until Saturday, but since I'm itching to leave now, we might see what we can do to leave and inch our way north before then. Our adventure is about to begin and I am so excited that giddy is the only word I can find to adequately describe it.
