we are in old town alexandria, staying at a hotel until the old homeowners of our new house finish moving out tomorrow night.
the way here was crazy. we started driving around 3pm and then drove all night, arrived in our ohio hotel at about 4AM. most of the way, it was either sleeting or raining. we left the hotel around 8AM and then drove to falls church, where my mom’s new job is. she did some paperwork for about an hour and then we continued on to alexandria.
i think i got a bit dehydrated. i barely drank anything, and my lips started burning and are now peeling.
i am going to tell my dad that we moved tonight. though we are pretty much already here, i’m going to tell him, actually, that we are moving in a couple of weeks. i’m going to go back to kansas for xmas i think, to be all appeasing.
the cats are in big wire dog cages, split up by two and three. they took the journey pretty well, though getting them in the cages was terrible. they freaked out. by the time we got them in the car though and were on our way, they settled down. lucy has her bed, and she is currently laying in it. she has barely eaten anything, so i worry. but we checked her blood sugar and will continue to keep an eye on it, and she is good. she is at least drinking. the worst of it all is over.
