There is so much to do... so many things left to do. *sigh* This has been a crazy two weeks, and we have gotten a lot of stuff done, and there's still a lot of stuff left. And then I have 7 days of driving ahead of me! With two cats! Driving a large truck, towing a car!
And then I have to get every little bit of identification updated, car registered, apartment leased, start a new job, and probably 20 other things that I haven't thought of yet (phone service, cable service, internet, cell phone...)!
Can I just go to sleep, wake up in two weeks, and have everything done? *sigh* I'm scared... really scared that something is going to go really wrong. I mean... yes, the weather here is cool/cold, but we had pretty much everything we wanted, outside of the weather. Or had it within a two hour drive, which (having grown up in West Virginia) isn't that bad.
Current Mood: scared

I've never seen a Coldstone Creamery in WV or VA (where I am ^_^), but I have been to one down in NC. Of course, we went at night (when I'm on heartburn watch) so I couldn't have any all to myself, but I did share some strawberry with strawberries mixed in with Lis and it was wonderful! Are there Coldstone Creameries out there? Actually... be quiet about that answer, or Lis will be dragging me there within two days of our arrival :^).

I know it looks impossible right now babe, but you're doing great, and we're going to get through this. I know here is 'safe' and we're living comfortably... but out there we will have friends to hang around with, and stuff to do with them. (Looking around at best buy twice a week isn't really 'something to do' ;))
I know you have friends from work here, and friends from school not far, but how often do you do anything with them? And how much fun did you have hanging with Maus and babyraver when you were in L.A.? Once we're there and settled, you're gonna be glad we went through with it, I promise.

Part of me is very pessmisitic. That maus & babyraver enjoyed my company because I was someone new, there for a short period of time. That after we're out there, people will tire of us, and we'll just be looking around Fry's twice a week for 'something to do.' I'm scared. Really. It just feels like too much left to do... too many ways to mess things up. Too many traps waiting to get us.
But I understand that for what is new, different, and scary for me is old, understood, and comfortable for you. I think a lot of the "L.A. is a big place" talk around work (everyone tends to say this when they find out where I'm moving to) is impacting me. Not to mention people's reactions that I'm moving myself, as opposed to having professionals.
The next few days are going to be hard for me. I'm going crazy... or at least I feel like I am. I expect that things will get better once we're driving. Part of me wonders how long it will actually take to pack up on Saturday, as Glen seems to think it won't take that long at all. I might be chomping at the bit to leave on Saturday--it's why I haven't actually made any hotel reservations. I figure, the first night we stop, then we can start calling ahead each day & making a reservation. Maybe.

I know it's a big change for you, babe. I expect you to have doubts and fears, but we'll manage. And I really don't think maus and babyraver and aelien are gonna tire of you. You're too fun. ;)
I can deal with leaving Saturday, especially if it lets us be here for their stupid walk-through checkout thingie. But if we do that, we need your mom to come down and help us Saturday morning if that's possible... there's stuff here that either she has to take for the yard sale, or we have to dump. And I hate the thought of dumping it all; I'd rather it went to goodwill or something at least, not the landfill.

I guess my thought of leaving Saturday is more having my mom do the walk-through on Monday still, but just letting us get on the road earlier. And maybe making it there before (or on) the 22nd so my birthday isn't just us & the cats in a random hotel.

I see... yeah it would be nice not to spend your birthday on the road... I guess us being here for the walk-through wouldn't change a darn thing really. If they're gonna bitch, they're gonna bitch. And we don't expect to get anything back anyway.
If you feel up to driving Saturday, we can do it. The sooner we are outta here and out there, the better.
