I wish I could tell you I have something cohesive or even interesting to write today, but I really don't. I'm focused on limping through my last two weeks of work and getting things ready for our big move. I lie awake at night sometimes thinking about all the things we have to do, ranking and prioritizing and wondering what will happen if we don't get things done on time.
The good news is, Dave's coworker has agreed to take Ernie and Ruby until we can come back and get them in October. That removes a major psychological burden. Figuring out how to accommodate the dogs has been the most stressful part of this experience so far. (Wait 'til we go apartment hunting!)
In the middle of all this, I have the insane urge to take a trip up to Niagara Falls. I'm trying to talk Dave into taking a day off work and going with me for a long weekend. I'd like to do something to celebrate my final days of work, and I want to seize the opportunity to see the falls while we're relatively close. After all, even if we do come back to the states someday, we don't know where we'll land -- it may be nowhere near here.
I'm glad the Memorial Day weekend is over. I had to work two of the three days, so it was no holiday for me! I suppose none of this is very Zen -- worrying about the future and being happy to be rid of the past. But what can I say. It's where I am these days.
