bye! off I go!!! California, here I come!

January, California.

February, Florida.

March, Norway.

It's not as exciting as it sounds, we are DRIVING all the way to California! 2,700 miles. Mirielle and I are driving Aaron's car for him, then flying home. I'm not sure when we're leaving yet. It's a lot of driving, and I admit I freaked a little when I realized we are going through the Donner Pass...but the car is a nice Subaru with four wheel drive, and we are New York drivers, so we'll be okay:)

February plans to Florida are not yet final.

March plans to Norway are in place, airline tickets purchased.

Winter has arrived with cold and snow. The high tomorrow: 15 (-9c). Tuesday we work the basketball game at the Dome. Wednesday I have my CT scan to see if we can figure out this pain, which has gotten a bit better. Friday, Camille gets another x-ray to see how her ankle is healing.

The princesses are having a sleepover tonight with cousin Danielle in Sam's old room. They set it all up cozy in there...

Emily was here today. Mali was here with baby Lydia. Aaron stopped to say goodbye, he's now on the road to California. He gave us his nice vacuum cleaner and some camping supplies. I don't like that he's moving so far away, but I do like the vacuum cleaner. As soon as he left, I plugged it in and tried it out.

Mirielle and I will be doing a long grueling drive, but then we will get to see where Aaron lives, and hopefully spend at least one day at the beach, or at least in the sunshine, before flying home.

Life isn't boring, that's for sure.

Oh are going to be a woman on the move! How exciting!!! I have always thought it would be fun to drive across the US. Have driven across Canada. We have driven down the west coast too and to Arizona. You will have fun I think. We are heading into a bit of a cold spell here....-19C by next Sunday 😖😖 That's a bit chilly...............

That is awesome that you are driving across the country! My husband and I drove from NJ to CA when we were newlyweds 20+ years ago (he was stationed in CA in the military). It is still one of the best memories we have. An unforgettable experience! Enjoy:)
