That's a lot of driving, folks. Thankfully, I was well-trained to road trip when I was young! It's much easier now, having traded KOA campgrounds for Courtyard hotels, and being able to find ample WIFI. What in the world did we do before smartphones?
Hope's original plan was to stay in Halifax this summer....but despite lots of job applications, she was unable to secure full-time, rent-paying employment. She was feeling super stressed about trying to stretch waitressing & babysitting & too-few hours at a retail gig. So, Austin and my "vacation in Halifax" turned into "operation bring Hope home."
