our journey has begun

I haven't blogged in a while. We've been swamped getting ready for our move, and to be honest, it was very difficult to leave "home" -- much more so than I imagined it would be. And writing about it was a reality I just didn't want to face.

We're now officially on the road ... yours truly, Aidan, Ty, Daisy and Pepper (2 adults, a four-year-old, and two dogs) -- quite the crew.
And as I type, I find myself in a hotel room in Laurel, Mississippi, feeling sort of lost, if the truth be told.

Aidan is watching a new Tom & Jerry DVD with his dad, having the time of his life ... after taking a dip in the teeny, tiny (but clean) Roadway Inn pool. He seems pretty much oblivious to the monumental changes going on around him, which makes me happy. It also helps keep me from getting too emotional about temporarily leaving the life I'm familiar with and those whom I love -- knowing that I have to be strong for him gives me a purpose during this period of limbo.

We traveled through three states today (Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi), and I'm exhausted. But I'm relieved that the most difficult day (crossing the border out of Texas and saying goodbye to the familiar license plates and state flags as they became fewer and fewer in number) is behind us and new adventures await.
Tomorrow night we're scheduled to land in Knoxville, Tennessee.
