On Saturday morning we did a absolutely marathon run of cleaning. We threw away every godforsaken thing we own, I swear. At one point I asked Rob if we had any more room in the trailer, and his reply was, "Oh, we ran out of room a long time ago, but I'm still finding room." We had to leave behind our hamper, a rug, kitchen chairs, and a number of other items, but it was all worth it for the sake of ease. Miraculously we managed to get out of the house at around 10:15 and how this happened, I will never be able to explain. It was all so fast and so frantic that I didn't really have much time to feel sad at our abrupt departure and newly empty house. I did, however, get a chance to take a picture of our empty house as well as the house in which our first apartment was.
Rob and Amie drove in the Jeep with the trailer ahead of me and I drove in my little Corolla. The 11.5-hour drive really wasn't too bad, maybe because I expected it to be extremely horrific.
On the first night we found ourselves in Carlisle, Pennsylvania...exhausted and hungry but more or less okay. I literally snacked on chips, cookies and M&Ms all day so I felt pretty awful.
Today we made it from Pennsylvania to Indianapolis. I finally got to ride the Chang (translation: eat at P.F. Chang's) which made me quite happy, and now we're chilling in the hotel, having drinks and giving ourselves temporary tattoos.
We have two more days of traveling ahead of us so hopefully we'll make it without any breakdowns or random acts of violence toward one another.
Want to know something funny? Though this has been a really stressful venture I feel closer than ever to my Robbie. I knew this anyway but I really have faith that we can weather any storm.
I hope you're all doing fabulously and thank you x1000 for all of your well wishes and support.
