Last day

Today is my last full day in the city of Seattle. I'm feeling nostalgic and melancholy at the same time. I have a bunch of errands to run but staying in my pajamas for a little longer makes it somehow worthwhile. As if I really do not have 100 things to do today and other responsibilities like packing up to drive away. I've avoided actually saying goodbye to most of my friends because I keep seeing them over and over so it's not a real goodbye, not yet. Tomorrow will be a hard day. Tomorrow begins my four year hiatus from the Evergreen City.

Odin is staying overnight at the vet today. The poor pup has pneumonia and has an IV for antibiotics and fluids. I feel so bad for him, but I am glad to know that he will be getting better. It seems like he is a calamity as of lately, he was in what I call the lamp shade collar (or, if you've seen Up, the collar of shame) as of Wednesday because he went and scratched his eyeball. It just makes me sad to see my puppy companion sick. He was so excited to see me this weekend and I was going to get in loads of time snuggling, playing tug and scratching the belly. We'll get some of that in tomorrow.

I've been pretty weepy lately and I still have a week until I leave Seattle for good. Little things make me feel emotional, emptying out the apartment, hearing Trevor say "goodbye house", missing the puppy, missing Trevor, not having a real home of my own right now. I feel lonely. I'm going to brave traffic to visit my puppy, I can't wait to see him. I'm just in a strange state of emotional flux right now and cry for odd reasons. This is hard.

This is what I have been up to lately, cleaning the apartment before I bid goodbye to this place on Monday morning. It is so hard to be focused on work and life with this whirlwind of moving floating around me. I can't wait to check deep cleaning off of my list. I can't wait to have time to just mess around again.

Packed & camping

Trevor is graduated. The apartment is packed. All of our belongings head toward Texas tomorrow. We're camping in our apartment this week to have more time together and more time with our animal family members. All I have to do this week is work and come home to some cleaning chores. I do have to say, it is much easier cleaning an empty house. Part of me wants this week to go by slowly so I have more time with Trevor.

Now that we're married we can start packing up the house to move across the country. This is not the most awesome time to be packing and moving. It's hard to pack and move a few miles let alone a few thousand. Hopefully all of this packing and purging will lead to a fruitful Sunday. Then I'll get a week of cleaning my empty apartment while camping out in my living room with the cat, the dog and the husband. I've had the opportunity to call him my husband a few times and it is still unreal to say it all out loud.

We did it! Now we're married and it makes me smile even more. I had an extraordinary day.
