Ahhhhh… only 21 hours left til I’m done. It cracks me up how some people beat around the bush trying to get me to tell them that I’m leaving instead of just asking me upfront. After 5 minutes or so I finally told one person this morning (mostly cuz it was obvious he wasn’t leaving my office until I did and I wanted to get back to what I was doing).
So anyway… Adam & I decided that we’re going to head back to Gladstone on Friday night and leave on Saturday to head to Mississippi/Louisiana. I need to get my car from Sharon so it can be parked since the plates will expire while I’m gone. I didn’t want to call her on Monday afternoon & say “I’m on my way to get the car”, especially since Hawk was sick, so Adam & I decided to wait until Friday to pick it up.
It was a very odd feeling when I realized that I’m not going to see our families until possibly Easter, which is 3 months away. I thought about talking Adam into waiting until Sunday to leave but I know we need to get down there so he can start working again. I am SO stepping out of my comfort box with all of this. I’m excited for the adventure but starting to get nervous as poo, too. This will be the first time that I’ve been away from work for more then 2 weeks at a time since I was in high school. I’m bringing down some books so I can study for certifications while I’m gone so it doesn’t look like I’m just sitting down there like a lump. Might as well do something with my time since my internet access will be in spurts!
