12 March: Moving Day
The night before was long! Hannah spiked a fever around 10 pm. Everything was packed, which meant David was on his way to WalMart at 10 pm. I woke up at 430 am, throwing up. David looked at me after getting sick and said "do you want to wait and leave tomorrow?" But I declined. My dad was going to be there at 5 am, with coffee and I didn't want to drag out my goodbyes any longer. We couldn't fit everything on the UHual, so I was grumpy about leaving my family and my stuff; I just wanted to get this over with. We got on the road a little after 6 am. By 1030, I deeply regretted not waiting another day. We had already stopped twice. David called Amy and Tom to let them know that he was unsure when we'd make it in because I was so sick. That's when they decided to get in there car and drive towards us. I know, pretty awesome, right!?! It took David and I 11 hours to drive 400 miles because we had to stop so much for me. Amy and Tom met up with us in Knoxville. Tom took over for me and I slept the remainder of the drive to Carbondale. We FINALLY got to Carbondale at 1130 pm (1230 am NC time). It was nuts. I don't know what I would have done without Amy and Tom's help. Turned out to me some stomach bug, I felt better the next day and 100% the third day. Driving + puking = not again! David and I spent the next 4 days settling ourself in, then we headed to Chicago for some surprise baby shower fun and his first day of work.
