We're leaving Alabama tomorrow to fly to California.
The last two weeks have been a non-stop blur of packing things for storage and deciding what to bring with us. In an hour, Mike and I are going to meet my mom for dinner and to deliver my red-eared slider to his new home in Mom's kindergarten classroom. And since none of us will probably sleep tonight, Dad's coming over to join in an all-night movie fest.
Tomorrow I'll leave Brawley, my cat, at Dad's house and we'll drive down to Birmingham.
I'm looking forward to the first leg of our trip in California. I've always wanted to visit, and I'm really excited to meet Mike's parents.
So, ten days and then we'll be in Fairbanks. Woot!
If you see two bicycle-riding geeks looking super happy to be out of the hot Alabama sun - that's probably us.
