We really ARE there!

Virginia!! Wow, here we are. It is so beautiful here... and so far, the weather hasn't been horrible. I mean, humidity-wise. The trip was - loooooooong. As in over 2,600 miles long! We went through 13 states! The dog didn't mind, but can't say that about the cat, lol. What worked was tranquilizing him then letting him loose in the car.... he hunkered down beside the car door and back seat where my daughter was sitting, and then he was content - enough. It's interesting living in a tiny one bedroom apartment. Not nice - but interesting. Ha. It's been forever since I've lived in an apartment complex; it's really weird. Kiwi isn't doing well with the move - she's cranky, irritable, grumpy.... and just wants to "go home". sigh. It's hard being a mom, when the world is hard and you just can't fix it. When we get moved to the "big" apt. (still, half the size of the house we left behind) I will get my computer set up, then I'll have lots of pics to share with you!


  1. Delighted to know you all arrived safely.

    Having endured horrific moves in childhood, I can empathize.

    Good luck in your new environment!

  2. Welcome to my world - lol. No seriously, Welcome to Virginia! If I can help point you towards some local fun/activities, just let me know.

  3. Actually, yes, I DO have an 11 year old daughter, and a 9 year old son, AND a 15 year old daughter- who is available for baby-sitting- lol. I LOOOOVE my Garmin (hand-held GPS) it gets me where ever I need to go :-)

  4. Take this from someone who has been there done that, every 3-4 years as a child...and survived. The up side is that it can help a child in the long run, meeting new people and adjusting to new situations. Now I think of each move we made as the start of a new chapter with new people and new adventures and new places. I really think its harder for adults.

    You will all be OK. And by the way, thank you for your kind comment.

    Best wishes!!
