On This Historic Day …
I’m wondering: If my little creatures will miss me while I’m gone.
I’m floored: By the generosity of my family and friends. I was already blown away by the funds donated to get me to the UK. And the gifts have not stopped coming. It’s humbling. I’m overwhelmed.
I’m sad: To be away from Jerimiah for two whole weeks. For some of my military friends, a fortnight apart from their spouse is chump change. But this will be the longest amount of time we’ve been separated in 14 years. I can’t express how much I’ll miss my best friend. I may or may not cry every time I think about it.
I’m thankful: Due to the generosity I’ve been shown, I don’t have to fly overseas naked. Though it might not look like much to you, my little alien-turtle has been making fitting into my existing clothing rather difficult. I can now speak in something other than my birthday suit. Yay!
I’m not looking forward: To sleeping on a plane tonight. But …
I’m excited: To meet (in the flesh) some really cool people and get this UK party started!
P.S. I’m opting not to spend a trillion dollars on an international plan and am instead getting a disposable phone while I’m there. So if you need me while I’m gone, the only way will be Facebook or e-mail.
