Git a’long, little doggie

I was born with a healthy dose of wanderlust. I’m not sure where I got it, probably my parents but I’m sure not. Maybe it’s because I read the Little House on the Prairie books so much as a young child.  After spending a few years in one place, I’m ready to move to another. Just for something different.

Growing up I really didn’t move that often.  I moved the most before the age of 7. We moved from Omaha to Loveland to western Nebraska. I lived at the same address from spring 1976 to December 1988.  Post 1988 I moved around a bit. I loved every move.

I married a man my opposite. Which is a good thing. But sometimes it can be a frustrating thing. Mr. FullCup does not at all like to move. Not a bit. He has no great love of new places and the endless places to explore. He’d rather stay put,  thankyouverymuch.

We have lived at our current address since August 2001. That is a loooonnngg time. Not in terms of a whole life unless you’re my 10 year old who has only lived here but in terms of someone with a large dose of wanderlust it’s an eternity.

Which is why I’m leaving. Yup. I’m done. I’m outta here. I’m gone like yesterday.  Today I shall point the nose of my get-away car (or err my getaway van) north and we’ll drive until I say we stop.

  2. I couldn’t find an email to contact you with but I wanted to invite you to link-up with fellow Nebraska bloggers to connect with some locals! I’m trying to put a list together so if you could follow this link and fill out that form that’d be great! I’d LOVE to add your blog to our growing list. Also, be sure to check out the facebook page we started. If you have questions feel free to email me,


    1. Kelsey, that is a wonderful idea! Thanks for thinking of it and of me. I appreciate it. I had not even heard of bloglovin’ before filling out the form. I hope I put the correct name/link up for it.


  3. Hello! I found your blog through the NE bloggers list- I was born and raised in NE and plan on moving back but am currently in grad school in TX. When I saw your picture I got all choked up, silly I know, but nothing is better than a NE road! I LOVED little house on the prairie when I was younger (still do!) hence the name of my blog ! 🙂
