Running Behind: The Road Trip Begins!


Running behind is an appropriate title to start my entries on our cross-country relocation. First, the past 6 weeks have been so crazy that I haven't had time to blog about the local spots we visited and the trips we made in that time (I hope to catch up once this trip is done). Second, we got off to a very late start today. Our plan was to drive to Flagstaff as soon as our stuff was loaded onto the truck. The movers showed up in the morning and had loaded over 90% of our stuff by 1 PM. The problem? The remaining items didn't fit on the truck they brought. This meant that we had to wait for the movers to bring a second truck to load what was left. They didn't show up until after 5 PM. My daughter and I spent some of that time at the mall running around in the play area because we didn't want her to get stir-crazy and bored with the few toys we're taking in the car before we even left the house. Once we were completely loaded, it was dinner time. We decided that it would be easier to eat before setting out: we could leave the dog at home and let the evening rush hour die down. We officially left on our trip, dog and all, just after 7 PM. Fortunately, Flagstaff is only a couple of hours away from Phoenix, so we didn't have a terribly long night ahead of us. So far, it's going well, though I have answered questions about if we're going to Pennsylvania or if we're still in Arizona about once every 5 minutes.

I'll write more from the road when I can!
