There were a lot of changes in latitude in our family this year. Between March and October, my dad-in-law, my husband and I, and two of my sons moved to new addresses. There was a lot of hauling, caterwauling, and aching. We all figured out ways to help one another get it done.
The final move of 2014 (unless someone is sitting on a big surprise) involved a road trip from Arizona to Ohio, in which son #2 and I delivered him and his belongings to his new home.
About halfway through my trip (remember, I still had to drive back to Arizona), I made a stop at a Walgreens where someone overheard me say I was from Arizona and had just been in Ohio. She asked me, “Are you a truck driver?” Wow, I never knew I gave off that vibe. But I guess that’s what 3000 miles in the driver’s seat in 10 days will do to a girl.
I don’t know what my son thinks about it, but for me it was the best road trip I’ve ever taken.
