Getting Our Ducks In A Row

A week ago we started our road trip from Texas. We packed and cleaned the apartment-- hitting the road the very moment everything was finished--about 5:30 pm. It may seem crazy, but you what you have to do.

Things were packed just so in Miss Jessica's car so that even legs had to be placed a certain way to fit. What didn't fit in the car was shipped or donated to the Salvation Army.

I got reacquainted with my daughter's driving skills, as she did with mine. After the second day on the road, I became envious of the cat, who was medicated every 4 to 6 hours as needed.

But we did it and arrived here in Virginia early Sunday afternoon--tired and stiff.

This week has been spent sorting and moving things to storage to allow Miss Jessica some space of her own. We're meshing...



And Lina, who once spent her days peering into the courtyard of an apartment building, now has a somewhat different view of life.
