Last night in the US
Oct 29th, 2009 by David

This is our last night in the US. We’re in Laredo,full of anticipation and trepidation. We’re finally here and it’s difficult to come to grips with. Tomorrow might we’ll be in Mexico, and Saturday night in our furnitureless new home!

Our last night in Dallas
Oct 28th, 2009 by David

Tonite is our last nite in Dallas. Tomorrow, it’s off to Laredo!

We had our last meal here at ‘our restaurant’, S&D Oyster Company, where we went on our first date. We even sat at the same table we sat at on our first date. I love Les so much. She has added so much to my life.

The March
Oct 21st, 2009 by Les

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!!
