Wednesday's Walk - Moving to Nevada


Today my walk down memory lane goes back to Sept 2007. It was the biggest move I have made in my life. Work was slow in Ohio & my husband couldn't find anything so we decided to move to Carson City, Nevada. I was working at the local newspaper in town. I loved my job it just didn't pay enough. Well my husband Paul left right after the 4th of July & he took his son Jared who was 17 w/ him. I stayed in Wooster, Ohio until September. They stayed with his sister until he found work which didn't take too long. He has family here in Nevada & that's why we came here. My husband is from Calf anyway.
Wow here is the big thing, I took myself & 3 children on a greyhound bus. My oldest Ridge was 7 yrs old. Marie was 5 yrs old and Jennifer was 3 yrs old. I had never rode the bus before but was a little scared with 2 big layovers. I was just worried that the kids might get away from me. It took us 3 days to get here. The last day seemed like forever. My gang did awesome & it seemed like we had done it before. We only had to worry about our carry on bags because I had shipped all our clothes before. We just had a couple of changes of clothes & junk food & books for the kids. Wow I look back & wonder how we did it. It was fun & exciting & a neat way to see the United States. My kids once in a while still talk about our big adventure & that's what it was. I hope they have good memories to tell there children someday. We went almost 2500 miles , Wow amazing to stop & think about it. Well that was our trip & we made it safe & sound w/ lots of praying to the Lord.
