Two days until our 40 hour drive begins. Two days until the last eight months of planning and holding our breath begins to transition into reality. Two days until we step out, trusting, hoping, and actively seeking adventure. The tears have started, the difficulty has been realized and the will is being tested. We are set, ready and excited. We are fighting off negativity and fear but doing it together is the best place to be. Moves are said to be one of the most stressful things on a relationship – I have a pretty exceptional partner in crime. My appreciation only grows in each decision and I can’t think of a better person to have on my side.
Today’s decision – purchasing a cassette tape, ipod adapter for the truck. Yep – we’re doing a little time travel to 1996…it’s cool…at least there isn’t a disc man involved.
Today’s big purchase – 4 new tires – not to be replaced by Monday’s purchase of an antilock break system, fuel filter, fuel pump and eight new glow plugs.
Today’s silver lining – Hendrick’s cocktails, Steak dinner and looking at photos albums from 10-12th grades.
