I think I have finally resolved myself to the fact that for the next few days I am just going to be a blubbering mess. I sniffled though most of my morning commute. My eyes watered throughout the day. But for the most part, I held it together. Then this afternoon I said goodbye to Gail, since she is going to be on vacation for the rest of the week. I’ll be honest, I cried a lot. I knew it would be hard, but it was so much harder than I expected. Her friendship has truly been a saving grace for me. I will greatly miss our chats, bubble tea runs, and all the little things that make a daily friendship so special. Leaving was hard and my commute home was done through blurry tears.
Three more days.
The kids and I met up with some cousins this evening at the park. The kids enjoyed themselves. I’m trying to squeeze in as much time with the people they love as possible before we leave.
