A Traveling Family

Well, I just got a call at work to see if I would still be able to make the trip up to Chicago. The project has yet again changed and they need us there tomorrow. Thank God I did all that laundry... I said I was all about going, so looks like I will be on the road first thing in the morning. Although I am so excited...excited about the work, excited about the new people, the new opportunities, and of course excited to be seeing my best friend and having her take me around the city...this really isn't the best week for me. How very annoying.

We are getting our new car on Wednesday-ish. This means I will be gone for that! I mean, I am sure Nick can handle it, but that is an exciting day! Not just a normal boring old Wednesday, but a GOOD Wednesday. Plus, our new TV comes in on Wednesday! I mean, that is huge! The car AND the TV!! PLUS, Missy is moving in this week. Like...on Wednesday. Right. All of these things will still happen without me home and when I get back the change will still be exciting. I just hate to miss it.

When I called Nick to say I was going up in the morning he asked when I would be home. They had left this decision up to me. I could come back on Friday, then go back Sunday until Tuesday, or I could just stay the weekend. I figured with Nancy up there I would just stay. That was until Nick told me that he was leaving for Pittsburgh on Sunday. Oh. Right...I think I want to come home for those two days now. I am going with a girl from the main lab, and I hear she needs to be home for the weekend as well, so looks like I will be home for a couple of days. I will bring the laptop, so look out for some updates from the city. Wish me luck!
