Okay, maybe it’s not the final hours but it’s the last full day we will be here. Tomorrow after school we will be throwing everyone in to the van and truck and heading for a little town just our side on the Rockies so that we can tackle the Rockies with a full day of daylight. We have learned that at the new site there are no cell towers and no cell service. This is making life interesting for me on an anxiety level. The company office will be located near where we live which is great, however, it means that when I am on site I will be “incommincato” with the schools etc. For this reason we have decided to splurge a little and have someone come into our home and carry a cell when the kiddos are in school. I have also told my parents that if something happens and one of the kiddos is enroute to the hospital, their 3.5 hrs away may be more accessible than I am.
The road ahead is hit and miss as far as our travels are concerned. For this reason we have decided to forego the use of a trailer. We will be putting whatever we can into the back of the van, the back of the truck and the back seat of the truck…… if it doesn’t fit, it doesn’t come. I thought this would bother me more than it is really, but having gone through it merely 5 months ago it’s just one of those things. Better to arrive safe than not at all.
I am nervous and excited. The lack of furniture I think will be the hardest. We won’t have a couch or chairs even. We will likely be sitting on the floor and standing at the counter for the first few days until we get everything sorted. We will be bringing the beds for the kids, or at least a mattress for both the older two and James’ toddler bed because it is so compact.
To be honest I am tired of living out of boxes. I am sure by the next move things will be quicker. I must admit I am a big fan of space bags (though the boxes are heavy LOL)
The site sounds frustrating, which isn’t the norm for me. There are things that I have learned from the last site that I definitely want to do better, and other things about the way information is saved. Then there is all the dangers and issues that we need to watch for. It makes me a bit nervous, but moreso because I am not there right now I’m sure. I tend to be a visual person, so being there is immensely helpful when compared to just trying to visualize it. I think that’s why I write reports so well, because I write them so that I can understand them later (pictures and all).
So this will likely be my last post until I get the interwebs sorted at our new location. Wish us safe travels and much luck. Will see you on the other side of them there Rockies!
