anticipating where to sleep

it’s been 24 hours and the top 2 concerns I have moving into a van:

  • my family’s safety
  • where we are going to park and sleep

while driving tara to school this morning, i’ve made mental notes of all the quiet, somewhat decent, neighborhood streets we can park our home on and settle in for the night. trying to get a handle of what that would be like, how the kids will adjust and how will i cook dinner.
