â€‹Monday, Oct. 3: We have 1,966 miles to go. Will reach halfway point tomorrow. The journey has included seven states – New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and Iowa.
Tomorrow we will go into Nebraska, weather permitting, and see Irvin and Janet and Erin and Art.
We drove a long time on this day and stopped, exhausted, at 7:30 pm. By the time we checked in and had thw pets cared for, it was 8:30 and we were able to go for dinner.
We stayed at a Microtel, which was clean and comfortable. We ate at the Beer house Restaurant. I had a decent grilled chicken with avocado and Jim had the Beerhouse sliders.
To my great relief, Silver used his litter box right after we got him settled on the hotel room. Overnight, he continued to use it :-).
So I feel less guilty about having him in the carrier for ten hours. And I have been walking him too.
Sophy is actually doing better than she did at home, with regular walks and food. No accidents so far.
Jim had a rough evening because we pushed too hard to get there. Basically, moving is hard because we don’t have any of the usual comforts or enough down time. You’d think that sitting in a car while your partner drives gives you lots of down time, but it’s not focused time because of all the things we have to look after.
