We have a busy weekend ahead of us with a lot of loose ends to wrap up before the big move. Here's how life plays out for us over the next few weeks
Friday: Gym, packing clothes, supplies, hair stuff, books, everything I'll need for two weeks in MI while starting a new job, grocery store, dinner date with B
Sat: Haircut at 9 (1st since May!!), UM/OSU game at 11, baking all afternoon for Friend Thanksgiving on Sunday,ensure packing is complete
Sunday: Drive to Milwaukee to have lunch with my aunt and pick up a piece of furniture for our new house, drive home, make sure desserts are ready to go, Friend Thanksgiving dinner at 5 p.m. (this involves a VFW hall, 45 people, amazing food, tons of alcohol, and a pie in the face for one of the guests. Definitely one of the bests nights of the year).
Monday: Wake up super early and hit the road for Grand Rapids. I have to have a drug screen and a physical for the hospital in order to start on Monday. Could they have told me this earlier so that I could have scheduled it for the same day as the house inspection?? Apparently not. So, another 6 hours in the car for a 45 minute apt. Joy. That night I'm meeting a bunch of my co-workers out for a going away dinner. That will definitely be the redeeming point of the day!
Tues and Wed: Work full days
Thursday: Say my official good-bye to Chi-town as I drive out of the city for the last time as a resident (this is sad now that I'm writing it!!) Drive to Toledo to celebrate Thanksgiving with B's family where we'll stay until Sunday. B will then drive back to the city with Junebug as I drive to GR to start in orientation on Monday. It's going to be a crazy two weeks living apart, starting a new job, closing on the house, and trying to organize moving from afar. However, I know it is SO worth it in the long run!!
So, that's my life in a nutshell. There are going to be lists galore going on over at my house.........
Today I am thankful for.........the stress associated with moving because it means that a new adventure is coming our way. And diet sierra mist because it's the most exciting drink I can currently partake in.
