Last Few Hours in Chicago

I didn't sleep well last night.

Mostly nerves and worrying about Boat and our roommate driving the 16 foot truck to New York.

I spoke with him this morning and they are somewhere in Pennsylvania, 500 out of 800 miles to NYC.

My flight leaves in about 3 and a half hours. My ride will be here in about an hour.

I still need to feed the cat and slip him half of a Benedryl so he'll be calm on the plane.

Other than that, I have a small duffle bag filled with pajamas, a toothbrush and my purse.

The weather there is cloudly, high of 79.

Unloading shouldn't be TOO bad, except for the fact that we're on the fourth floor of a five floor walk-up.

But once the truck is returned and we start unpacking, I'll feel better.

I'm happy that I got to see most of my friends before I left.

And those I didn't, emailed or called to wish me luck.

It was also good to see my brother and say goodbye to my dad.

Mom is actually meeting us today to help unpack and watch the truck.

It's at this moment I'm so very grateful to her and to our roommate for helping us.

There is just no way Boat and I could have done this ourselves.

And I'm thankful to Boat, because I would have never been able to get up and move without him.

The blog will be changing soon. Email me at: in a few days, and hopefully I'll have a new link.

Keep in touch.
