Greetings from Ohio. What an adventurous day of traveling it has been.
I managed to give away or sell or stuff into my car and my parents car everything I own. We stopped in Leesburg to shop at the outlets. Anitra was kind enough to meet me there for a few last moments together.
We carried on and stopped a few miles up the road at a cute antique store. I found a vintage soda pop sign I really wanted. The lady said it was $95 but they would give it to me for $45. I couldn't do it. For the money. And the fact that space is VERY limited. So we carried on.
But HAD to stop at the ribbon outlet in Hagerstown. Luckily ribbon can easily be smooshed into small crevasses.
A road trip with my sister Kristi wouldn't be complete without a stop at Cracker Barrel- in West Virginia.
Then we drove through the scariest lightning storm I have EVER witnessed. There was one flash of lightning that seriously made my sad, pathetic life also flash before my eyes. Yikes.
Tonight we are in Columbus- awaiting the sweet Eddie Bauer Warehouse sale to start in 11 hours. Can't wait. And pizza in Chicago. mmmmm.
But I miss Virginia. It doesn't seem real that I have left for good. I am not sure when it will.
