It's Time to Go

Sorry, no pictures for now, but I did want to let you know that today's the day...again! We're loading yet another UHaul truck with Tiffany and Nikki's stuff and then will leave for Orlando once we've finished. Hopefully, that will be late afternoon so we can drive 3-4 hours in daylight. We'll stop for the night about halfway there and will finish driving tomorrow. Jenn and Will have friends and family in Orlando who will help us unload after the heat warning expires for the day. Yes, it's a different world they're traveling to, especially Tiffany!

There have been lots of emotions for everyone, especially the girls, as this new chapter begins for them. There's sadness at leaving a world that held such promise, relief in leaving for the same reason, fear of new choices because of insecurities that developed due to the recent years' experiences, and excitement at being able to share this time in life together. It's been strange for me to be back also because while this will always be home for me, it's also where life was fractured for our family and the many memories around every bend keep reminders in my face all the time. It will be interesting to see where life finds us in a year or two.

For now, it's time to put on the moving hat and get busy. I'll have pictures soon of the last few days and the beginning of life in very hot Orlando for Tiffany and Nikki. Mickey, here we come!!
