New Beginnings in Nevada
At some point we all gotta move on, start over, rethink goals. I think that's a huge part of surviving. While visiting family in Chicago, the kids all got to decorate a cupcakes, using candy of their choice, frosting, loading up as they wished. No one was allowed to criticize anyone's creation.
So then we ate them all, enjoying the works of art, good and fattening.
I made it safely 2400 miles in 3.5 days, paying upwards of $4 a gallon, getting seriously good mileage on the '96 geo. All my personal possessions fit in, and I could still see out the window. That says something, I guess for the minimalist life style.
My sister and I went out dancing, met cool people, stayed up til 2:30. Pacific Time. Four time zones is nothing to sneeze at.
