Today is the day! I leave in a few hours.
Dad and I broke the trip into 3 days/2 nights as we have the U-Haul and can't go too fast. We will stop overnight in Cincinnati, OH and Asheville, NC as we make our way down to Charleston.
I am all set. Packed, CDs (I am old school) are ready to be played in the car, I have healthy snacks for the road on ice in my cooler. Water and electric get turned on Friday and cable (Bravo, oh how I have missed you!) and Internet on Saturday.
I cannot believe I am here.
Heading south to my new life. Only 1,000 miles (987 to be exact) stretch between what already happened and what is yet to come.
I will be offline for the rest of the week settling in, unpacking, and enjoying a little time with Crush and his family. My Mom (I have the BEST folks) is flying down to meet us for a long a weekend (she is smart enough to pass on the drive, but will arrive just in time for the congratulatory cocktails!) and to see Crush's parents and grandmother. I am excited to get myself to the beach, to a few new restaurants, and to the gym (LOVE the spinning studio there as you all know because I can't stop talking about it!).
I am taking 2 entire weeks off (I will blog during this rest period after Saturday when I get my wifi) to get into a good routine (learn my way around mostly), relax, and take a mini road trip to NJ/NYC to see Sissy (and her crew, Big Baby turns 3!)) and pick out my bling. Then, the grueling job hunt will begin though I shouldn't complain as it is already showing some great promise.
I look forward to getting a bit more personal after I arrive in Charleston and who knows...maybe even share a few photos?! I have lots of fun tidbits to blog about and I can't wait to fill you (y'all!) in!
Have a wonderful week and be back soon!
