movin on out

Everything is starting to move pretty quickly around here. I was looking at my planner today, looking at the few weeks I have left of single life, of Utah life (for a while at least), of college life. It's all pretty surreal. 
I hate the word surreal because I feel like as a writer, it's the easy way out but I don't know how else to describe it.
Tonight I sealed up my first box marked "To Stay." It's full of all the decoration knick knacks that I have carried through all of my, wait for it, TEN moves in college.  But they won't be coming with us to Maryland. We've officially admitted defeat on selling my car so space is precious and I need room for our awesome flip waffle maker. 
Always the planner, driven by my insane anxiety, I planned out our journey to MD last night. It looks a lil somethin like this:

We are stopping in Chicago for an afternoon and a night. Any suggestions on places to eat or visit, please let me know!
I am drrrreaddddding this drive. DREADING! I am trying to be optimistic about the adventures that await us but let me tell you, I have looked into a million options to get us out of this drive and I just can't. 

Also, if you need to clean out your closet, I highly recommend moving across the country. If you aren't taking it across the country, you probably don't need it!

  1. Oh wow--that will be a HUGE cross country trip! But hopefully it will end up being pretty fun with getting to stop and see different sites of the country along the way!
