Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
— Mark Twain
And so it begins, David and my great adventure….well, truth be told not the first for either of us but the first for “us”.
The unknown can be somewhat frightening (this whole prep time has been a salute to the unknown). Our list of “have to dos” has grown shorter and most items have entered the “have done” column.
The movers will be here Tuesday to pack (still trying to figure out what to take, what to donate and what to toss). On Wednesday they will pack up the truck and on Thursday we will begin our journey.
I think we are both filled with excitement, trepidation, a little angst for leaving some of our lives behind both here and in Wisconsin – not for good, certainly, but for “now”. Sleep does not come easily, with thoughts colliding and notes being made on a pad of paper set next to the bed.
What were tentative steps at first have become a march to the finish now. To the adventure ahead!!
