We're up and gathering our things from Mom and Dad's and will head over to the house in a bit to get the animals packed up and the last few things in the car. I'll load the cooler and then we'll hit the road.
Now that it's here, I'm not feeling so excited anymore. I know I'll feel differently once we get on the road, but I hate saying goodbye to my family.
I told Mom this morning that we're going to think of it like going on a long vacation, so we really don't need to cry. But I'm not sure that's going to work.
