I'm excited, this is a great opportunity at work and I'm excited that I was picked out of several options but I'm also sad to leave home for the week. Since I've moved to Oregon with my husband this will be the second time I've been away from home and for someone who spends nearly all my time when I'm not at work with my husband, this will be a bit odd. Its also the only time I've been away from home essentially on my own, I never had need to go anywhere alone.
A rare photo of the 2 of us, this was our first year together at a park in Michigan. Please no judging the footwear, they make my feet hurt looking at them and I'm not sure what I was thinking. One of us typically hold the camera so there aren't many together shots that aren't either blurry or featuring me looking like I stuck my finger in a light socket, oh yay humidity in Texas!
And the 3 furballs that live here and allow us to sleep in their bed, Lizzie really has a look that says if she could talk she'd ask why she had to put up with all this nonsense when she was comfortably napping a few minutes ago. Alas, once its done it will be done, but really, did it have to be Texas?
