Leaving the city

Columbus, United States


It is bitter sweet leaving Columbus for this adventure. On one hand Columbus has been my home for over 12 years, however this is going to be the adventure of a lifetime. Kayla and I are planning a road trip for six months to a year around the United States and Canada. The reason: to find a place to live, the bonus: seeing all of the amazing things the U.S. and Canada has to offer. I am sure it will be difficult and trying at times and I can't imagine sharing it with anyone but her. Here we go...

Bon Voyage Party

Columbus, United States


Today we had our going away party even though we are not leaving for a month. After everyone left I realized that I have made some great friends and met some of the most wonderful people. I am going to miss Columbus and I am going to miss the people that live here.

Homesick

Columbus, United States


I read the best quote the other day that expresses how I feel at this moment in time.

"I am home sick for a place I have never been!"

One day left

Columbus, United States


We are going out with some friends tonight then bar hopping the night away. The sadness of leaving has set in and we will miss our friends, family and chosen families (especially). Still the joy out weighs the sorrow that we feel. So excited to start this adventure of two little girls!

bittersweet.

Columbus, United States


We decided to stay one more night due to our late start today. I cried for the first time as one of our friends drove away earlier. I had no idea how much I love it here. Thank you to all who have helped make this trip possible and cheers to 2010!

No words...

Pittsburgh, United States


Currently, G and I are sitting in a family waiting room in a hospital in Pittsburgh waiting to hear how her father's heart surgery went. We've been here since late Monday evening. We decided last week, that it would be best for us to leave Chicago and come here to help as much as we could. I feel so lucky that we are currently both unemployed, and are able to stay here for awhile.

His mitral( sp?) valve is leaking into one of his lungs and the fluid buildup is preventing him from breathing properly. They're going to replace his valve with a steel one, and if the surgery is successful he will feel so much better.

There's another woman in this waiting room, that's been waiting here for her husband for over 24 hours. A second woman just walked in, who looks like she's been through hell and back. She's trying to sleep sitting up, but it looks like her tears are keeping her awake. Seeing the love, the uncertainty and the exhaustion in their eyes is gutwrenching. I feel unworthy that I'm sitting here next to them, during some of the hardest times of their lives.

I think we'll be here for another week or so, and from then who knows. One of us will post after we decide what's next I'm sure.

New fiends

Madison, United States


So this blog thing is hard to get the hang of and we are working on it. Any whooos...Kayla and I spent a week in Madison WI, making new friends, eating great food and seeing the sites. Madison is pretty cool. We went to a benefit (where I won a massage from Kelly Maxwell, thanks I feel so much better), a roller girl championship game, some museums, the botanical gardens, a cheese store, a wonderful micro-brewery (Ale Asylum), State Street (cos I am a nerd like that) and so much more.
