Ready to Roll

The goodbyes are done and we are finally ready to leave tomorrow morning. We are all a little anxious, excited to get on the road but also sad to leave Sheba and our house–now clean and clutter-free–behind. Both kids begged just enough, and at our weakest moment (on hold with Verizon), to bring armfuls of stuffed animals along so the Woodebago is now a zoo of fuzzy, happy friends. She’s also filled to the gills with bags, bins and boxes that hopefully but probably don’t contain everything we need. I’m pretty sure, for example, that we packed the pasta pot but not so sure there’s a pasta ladle or even pasta for that matter. But we will have plenty of time to figure it all out (and buy and eat a lot of pasta) in the next year. Here and now, though, there’s just one more night in a mostly-empty house, eating the last of the ice-cream from the freezer and waiting for morning to arrive. Pittsburgh, here we come…

    Have fun! If you make it to Erie, where we are right now, there are a few things to do. The Zoo is small but cute. Presque Isle–the Peninsula–it’s a lot of fun. You can checkout the Tom Ridge Center since it is a quick visit. On your way to Buffalo consider Panama Rocks. Of course, the kids would like Splash Lagoon–completely non-educational. 😉
