We made it through the LONG journey from Northern Washington to Southern California packed in our car with the kids and dog!!! Hours and hours passed by. We got through almost all of Oregon in one day.
We stayed in a Hotel that welcomed doggies. Missy was in heaven on her bed for the night. It was a really nice place. We got lot's of rest and coffee in the morning to keep me going the rest of the way.
If you know me... I am not huge on driving long distances. The next day I drove 14 hours straight. It was Mr. Darling who kept me focused. I just knew he was in our new home awaiting our arrival. So I really pushed myself like never before.
The first night it all caught up to me. I crashed hard with exhaustion from packing, stress and traveling. I ended up really sick for the whole first week. The kids got sick too !!! We still had so much to do... painting the house, our friends were coming with the moving truck. All the unpacking.... I am so drained. It's not all finished yet. I am just thankful to God He brought us here safely. Soon we will be setteled and organized. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers !!!
