For the first time in four weeks, I am not living out of a suitcase! I unpacked it completely today, and happily drug it down to the basement. Ok, no I didn’t. I left it at the top of the steps, hoping my hubby will bring it down. Or better yet, Chip, who recently moved back home to save a bit of money before going off to college. (Yeah, a lot has happened these past few weeks.)
As happy as I am to be settled back at home, I’m a little sad that the training’s over. When you spend all day everyday with a really great group of people, you tend to develop a bond. So saying goodbye Saturday afternoon was bittersweet. After promising to keep in touch, we packed up our diplomas and headed to our prospective homes. Some in Missouri, some in Illinois, and some in Tennessee, Alabama and New Mexico. I miss ’em already!
I have two days off before I get to put my new skills to use. And they’re expected to be the pick days of the week weather-wise.
Yesterday was sunny and 70 degrees. I took advantage of the spring like day, and my spring cleaning mood, to clean up my house. It actually didn’t look TOO bad considering I’ve been gone off and on for so long, but some areas needed attention.
I followed that up with a nice long car wash on the driveway. After the rains of late, my car was in need of some attention as well.
Some quality shopping time with Mario, some quality lunch time with friends, some quality walk time with my hubby, and some quality reading time on the deck rounded out my weekend.
It’s been the perfect transition from leadership training to leadership-ing. I can’t wait to go in tomorrow.
