Somewhat sadly, yet very excitingly we are leaving Victoria tonight. I think most of all I will miss the girls that I have gotten to hang out with the most. It is beautiful here on Vancouver Island, and I will always treasure the memories made here, but there is nothing like home.
And yes. I. Should. Be. Packing.
However, I have been packing all morning, I have a headache, and I am already exhausted! So I think that I deserve a small break. Bristol has been a HUGE help with the packing. She just has her own way of doing it. First, she completely takes out what I put in the suitcase (all neatly folded), waves it around in the air, tries to put it on, and then puts it back! I just have to laugh because at least she isn't hanging onto my legs as usual.
Tonight we drive to Sydney and board the ferry that will take us to Tsawwassen, pronounced tawasen. We have to be there around 8 PM, and the ferry leaves at 9. We will arive on the mainland at 10:30 where we have booked a hotel room for the night. I'm sure I'm going to be completely exhausted, Bris too. Then we get up bright and early tomorrow morning and drive 10 hrs. 39 minutes (thanks mapquest) to Boise. My dad and Ashley come in from Alaska tomorrow night in time to see us. Then come Friday morning another 4 1/2 hours to Logan where we will move into our new place! It is rather exciting, but as much as I hate packing up a place, I don't like moving things from a storage unit to a house much better. Oh well! I'm just very greatful that we have a place to live!
Until we have internet...farewell, and bring on "the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave!" I have missed you U.S. of A.!
