Friday was my last day at work. I wanted to cry all day. I never thought the process of leaving my job was going to be so emotional. It broke my heart to write instructions for my replacement. When the day was over, my boss hugged me... That was the most heartbreaking part of the day. He looked like he wanted to cry. He really was more than a boss. He was a friend... I felt so sad and I still do but that day was the worst. All of that evening, I felt a lump in my throat. I guess I have to let go of something good to reach for something great. I just didn't know it would hurt so much.
Anyway, we are leaving tomorrow for our road trip and I am so excited! We will be loading up my two door little Honda with our four dogs and since my dad is still away, his little dog will also be joining us for the adventure. Soooo, we will have five dogs total. We are going to Mississippi to see the mammy doll building and other things like that. (I wrote about it in a previous blog).
I was telling one of my dogs, who is basically a person, about how we're going to sleep in a hotel again and eat snacks and he brought me his leash. He has been running back and forth to the place where I keep the leashes all day. It's adorable but I feel bad he has such a worry and wants to go NOW. He is my dog for sure, everything is always " let's go now" with me. lol.
I ran a few errands today. I got my new computer and am using it now. Fingers crossed that this one will be ok, unlike the other two. I also got things that we needed for the dogs. I think I have the majority of the stuff that I need for the trip and school. Everything is in order and now I'm just super nervous.
When we come back, we will be having my "Going to Law School Kiss Off". All of my friends and some of my family are coming to celebrate with me. After that, school will start. My best friend is coming and I can't wait to see her. I just can't believe the thing that I have been preparing for is almost here. I have butterflies.
Ok well, I need to go. I have not packed anything and it is 12:30 a.m. I need to finish washing clothes, fold clothes, take a bath, and then pack my stuff and the dog's stuff. Ugh, it's going to be a long night but I'm blessed. I could never have gotten this far without GOD.
Check back for more posts about the trip. I will bring my computer with me so I can post about the adventure. Thanks for reading. Also, thank you all for the continued love and support that I continue to receive about my grandmother. I love her and I'm sad. Your words make me feel so much better. I love you all.
