So it's been a while since I've written anything. I've been a bit busy. Sorry.
When we last left this saga, I gave in my two weeks notice. Seriously, I can not express the dread that I felt doing that. My heart raced and my body was going into serious fear mode. But I did it.
Next up on the agenda, renting a truck and moving my stuff back to my parent's place in Allentown, PA. Have I ever driven a truck of any kind? Nope. Another nerve wracking.... 20 minutes. I think I almost killed a few people on 31st and Astoria Blvd. But I made it back to PA. Yay for me.
Followed by wrapping up my work and putting together a goodbye party for my residents. (Did I mention that I worked in residential building?) A small goodbye party with a few friends of mine and then packing my car with a few things that I had left in the apartment. I feel like I might have to go more in depth with this last week in NYC. This introvert was definitely in the wild.
When I came to my parents house, it was empty. They were spending the next few days close to where my dad was working. Honestly, my plan was to stay in the house and organize my belongings, go back to eating well and getting back to center. That did not happen. My mom texted and asked me to come visit them and since she just had her hip replaced, I figured she might need some help. (Once again, another in depth blog post.)
And that leaves me here. In my parent's kitchen typing this while sitting next to my mom who's watching Downton Abbey. Big sigh. This is one of those moments when you feel like you're in the dark. It reminds me of this thing I read that sort of says that when it's dark, maybe you've been planted, with the implication of blooming soon. (Downton Abbey is rubbing off on me) So, maybe I need this week and a half to prep for the upcoming trip. We'll see.
