well, we're here. it has been an interesting couple of weeks, but i think that we've come out the other side and it all went really well. ej and his brother drove the truck and made it in 3 days- and they actually got some sleep, too! very impressed. the closing went fine, except that i forgot my driver's license and had to leave to go get it. yeah. i'm a grownup. i can own a house. lord. lucy and i flew and it went pretty well. as we left seattle, i was distracting her so that she would stay in my lap and so i was looking out the window and listing all of the things and people that we were saying goodbye to, ending with "goodbye seattle". in true lucy fashion, she says, "hug?", then proceeds to stretch her arms wide and lean her cheek against the window, giving all of the northwest a hug. as we arrived in madison, a few bedragged hours later, i was doing the same thing, saying hello to our new home. so madison got a hug, too. i think that she kissed the windows, too, but i don't know how clean they are, so i didn't encourage that too much. all the folks on the plane were so nice. people are nice to single mamas, it seems! it makes me so humbled. and so incredibly grateful that i'm not a single mama, i just have to travel as one now and again.
