This is a very odd time in our journey. We are literally overwhelmed with logistics and the To Do lists of getting the heck out of here. At the same time, we are saying lots of good byes.
Husband and I had lunch with work colleagues and friends. Really lovely men that we enjoy so much. You chat, talk, exchange hugs and say "see ya next year" - it is surreal.
We have dinner with friends made through our children. Really relaxing and fun to sit and talk, chat and there is always the good bye of "see ya next year ..." We will miss these amazing relationships and the kinship of like souls.
When I was pregnant, I knew this huge life changing event was about to happen. I knew it in my brain and in my heart. But, I could not possibly know what it would be like until that precious child arrived. I feel a similar anticipation. I know this is huge. I know it is life changing. I know it is the opportunity of a life time. But, I can not possibly know what it is like till I get there.
Ready to be there . Really ready. And scared too by the way.
