Five Days to Go!

I think it is beginning to hit me. Everything feels incomplete, nothing feels settled. I don't know why I am surprised, I should have been expecting this!

I think we're finally prepared to go. All bills have been cancelled, all relevant parties have been notified, and plans are in place to visit our nearest and dearest one last time. I can't help wishing we had one more week, just to make sure. But that is maybe just delaying the inevitable.

I've not felt like this for a long time. Perhaps the only thing that comes close is how I felt before an all day interview - knowing that it would be over before I knew it, but needing to make sure to come up for air - to take stock of what is going on.

It's our last Friday night, and we're spending it with our old friend Julie =) (she's actually younger than me but I've known her forever!). The rest of the weekend is reserved for more visiting, with our remaining days next week being spent with family. It will no doubt be teary, and I know I've got lots of things I want to convey, but I think we are just now really looking forward to Wednesday afternoon - knowing that the initial hard part is done, and our wee adventure awaits =)

  1. Almost there now. Ride it out. You'll be looking back on it before you know it. It will just be another chapter in your story. I can't wait to see what's in store with the next one!
