Sweet jesus this day has taken a long time to get here!
After nearly a month of hanging out in anticipation, today is finally the day where we jump on a West Jet Plane and leave Ontario to start our new adventure nestled up to the Rocky Mountains in Kimberley.
Actually, we're spending the night on my friend Tommy's floor in Calgary first, but you get the picture.
Truthfully, I need this day. Well, I need two days from now, when we've gotten to the condo in Kimberley, checked out the town and I have checked in at work, so that I can start to get back to the routine that I desperately need to keep me from feeling all melancholy like I have been for the past week.
Not being able to do the things that I love to do (read: writing on a regular basis) makes me all weird and tired and grumpy and it really does suck to be around me. Up until a couple weeks ago, this summer had a great flow to it where everything fell into place nicely and I was happier than a pig in shit.
Now, I just kinda feel like shit.
While it doesn't help that I have a cold and try to hack up a lung every morning, being out of my routine is what drags me down more than anything. It's not that there hasn't been time to write, it's just that there is always something else that has to be done and when it rolls around to free time, I just want to crawl onto the couch and crash.
I'm hoping that getting all this moving crap over with - FINALLY - will get me back on track and typing up a storm real soon.
If not, at least I'll have a hot tub with a great view to lounge around in!
