Just a quick post to let you all know that we have arrived safely in Michigan. The trip went smoothly and the kids did great (thanks in part to a new dvd player and lots of Dora and Diego videos!). Saying farewell to our friends was incredibly difficult, and I miss them all dearly already. It all seems a bit surreal and more like an extended vacation so far. Housemate asked me on chat “so now what?” It was a good question. Now The Narrator goes to work in an office and not Panera Bread. I unpack and do laundry and day by day we look for a new normal.
