This is REAL!

Six and a half hours of air time later, I am here!
I have officially arrived in Utah. It doesn't seem real to me at all at this point, but I'm hoping that after we move in to our apartment TOMORROW it all sinks in.
For now, I am trying to enjoy not having anything to do. When I was home there was always something to do, or pack, or clean, or something. At that point I could choose not to do anything (not that I would, right?). But here, I have nothing yet. That will change, I promise.
Lori and I are just happy to be in the same state again. We watched a movie yesterday afternoon, and would you believe someone fell asleep (it wasn't me, just for the record).
I always love visiting with Lori because she is totally herself. And if you really know Lori, you know what that means. If I had been fast enough, I would have gotten my camera last night and taken a picture of her sitting in a box - a box! We laughed for a long time!!

On the plane yesterday, there was a plane that flew underneath us. It was a pretty good distance away, and from where I was sitting it looked pretty small. I wasn't concerned with that one. About 30 minutes later, out of nowhere, a jet came flying right by our plane. I have NEVER been so scared in my life. I have to say that the cool part was seeing the jet trail it left behind - very cool up close, but I don't care if I ever see it that close again.
No one else on the plane seemed concerned by it, so maybe I was over reacting, but seriously - the sky is HUGE!! Do we all need to be in the same space??

Anyway, off for the first full day of adventure.

Pilot error

So, I just went in to delete a post that I had second thoughts on (no one really needs to know my negativity) and I just saw where you can see the comments people have left on your posts. I seriously never knew!! (I won't even admit that I didn't know I could delete a post until about a month ago!!) Maybe I need a manual - Blogger for the Dummy!
Anyway, now I know and I will find you! Thanks to anyone/everyone who stops in. Once I get settled in Utah, I plan on adding real substance to my blog. You can take that as either a promise or a threat - your choice.

The list

  1. My car is being shipped next Tuesday (meaning I have to be completely packed for Utah by Monday)
  2. My last day of work is next Thursday
  3. I leave for Utah exactly one week after that (the 22nd)
  4. House closes on the 28th (possibly earlier)
We're really getting down to the end of our time in Massachusetts. I'm excited for the next phase of life, but it's coming way too fast. I don't think I'm ready!! Guess there's only one way to find out for sure if I'm ready or not.
