Tonight I ordered Chinese food for dinner since I spent the afternoon giving away or throwing away all of the food in our house. After devouring more than my fair share of Kung Pao Shrimp, I forgot about the fortune cookie and almost threw it away when I realized I was giving up a perfectly guilt-free 10 calorie dessert. So of course I ate it and was so encouraged by my fortune....."Everywhere you choose to go, friendly faces will greet you" This was especially significant because I have had a hard time walking away from friendly faces this week. Some I saw knowing it would be a good long while before I see them again and some I know I will see again in a few short days - but knowing that my time is growing short is definitely taking its toll. I know, I know, there is email and phone and even that short 9 hour and 35 minute plane ride. But there is something about sitting across the kitchen table from someone that you just can't quite replace.
On a more positive note, I am SO excited to leave on Friday. This week is going to be a little hellacious - work is crazy, I have packers/movers coming Tuesday and Wednesday, I'm supposed to sleep starve myself Thursday night so I will be nice and tired for the plane ride on Friday......but at the end of all that I know there will be at least one friendly face to greet me....and that will make it all worth while. :)
