Invaluable Friendship

I just returned from a girls' weekend in Chicago with two of my best friends from college. We had an awesome time just hanging out, being silly and reconnecting. We hadn't gotten together, all three of us, for 4-5 years...too long. It was awesome that we could just sort of pick up where we left off and it was like we were all still rooming together or living across the hall from each other. Friends like that don't come along every day.

Am I just seeing things?

Is there a light at the end of the tunnel or am I just seeing things? Lately I've been feeling completely overrun and overwhelmed with details about moving and with work. Yesterday I worked 14 hours - and that has become more the norm than I'd like. There are just not enough hours in the day to get everything done.

Today, however, I felt some of the pressure let off. My clients are finding people to replace me and I start training them next week! At least in one area of my life things are about to get a bit easier. Thank goodness, because I was about to collapse under the weight of everything that has to be done.

My house is officially a disaster

Over the course of the past few weeks my husband has been moving off the ship that he has been stationed on for the last four years. Even though he didn't have much in the way of storage space, it is amazing how much stuff he brought home! Did I mention that we live in a teeny tiny one bedroom apartment? So, there is no place to put all of this stuff. My house is normally pretty clean, at least decently picked up, and now I don't stand a chance. I guess this is the first stage of the disaster that comes before moving. The mess drives me crazy, but somehow I don't see it getting any better before we leave. I'm starting to just want to get moved and settled in Sicily and have this whole transition nonsense done with.
