Noah and I made it to Jeff's apartment- the halfway mark to Seattle. We'll finish our journey tomorrow and come back here for one more sleep before going home. I spent most of the day doing laundry and cooking so that no one will starve while I'm gone. Not that they would if I hadn't but I will have a better time away knowing they have good food and also knowing I won't have to cook when I get home. 

Today was the first time in a long time I felt like things (what things I do not know) are aligning and that everything is going to be okay. There's a difference in knowing it and feeling it and today I really felt it.

back to school haircuts: check

Tonight I had really wanted to walk down to the sunset but the kids wanted to watch a movie. I'm kind of giving in to whatever they want on these last few days before school starts. The going to bed earlier this week plan never did go into effect but they're going to do just fine next week. These are the days to stay up and sleep late.

We watched Home and there aren't enough words for me to describe how much I loved that movie and the giggles it made come out of my kids. At one point Gray snuggled up with his arm around me. That right there is everything.

the hum

I do feel lighter today. I hardly slept last night but it wasn't dreadful. Just a fitful sleep and sounds of rain that I was happy about. We had to be up early to get to Ivy and Carter's dentist appointment out of town. It was nice to get home and have the rest of the day to get things humming along. The school supplies are sorted and put in the appropriate backpacks, extras are neatly stored in the closet. The laundry is drying, the dishwasher takes its turn. I actually had the headspace to get Ivy's birthday party scheduled and even started to plan the food. Most of her gifts have now been bought. And I'm truly looking forward to the Seattle drive this weekend. I have been hoarding podcasts to listen to and can't wait to drink up the views along the way. We may not be moving house but we're certainly moving forward and that is a really good thing.
