Well, this Christmas hasn’t turned out exactly as we expected, but Harry and I are enjoying it nonetheless.
The good news…yesterday was my LAST day of work. It started to seem very real throughout the day as I cleaned out my desk and filled a small bag with my personal items. I opened a couple more accounts, started a loan app…and then transferred it to one of my coworkers so he would be able to follow up on it and get it done later this week. I can’t say I really felt sad to think of leaving, just about saying good-bye to my coworkers.
Harry arrived right on schedule to pick me up, and then our day went a bit haywire! When it was time for me to leave, the car wouldn’t start. So we called our roadside assistance company, and waited for the tow truck. In the meantime I called my sister, and my brother-in-law was nice enough to drive over and pick us up at the branch. We ended up going over to my sister’s for dinner, which we appreciated so much, as we had expected to be on our way to MA by then.
So this morning, instead of waking up in Massachusetts, we are hanging out in our rig. We did skype everyone this morning, and watched our little guy open his presents. Hopefully we will be able to head over there for the day on Sunday, and have our Christmas a few days late.
In other news, there looks to be a pretty good storm heading our way later this week. <sigh> We were hoping to get out of here before we got any major snow. But we still have at least twenty days before we can get going, so we may have to deal with some accumulating snow before we can hit the road. Yuck.
Anyway, Merry Christmas! Hope everyone has a great day!
