Before the Dawn

Up at 5:25.  Or should I say – gave up on trying to sleep at 5:25 and got out of bed.  Made a single cup of coffee, turned on the laptop and started last minute checks.  Not sure why I checked Facebook, but I did.  Yup no one posted all night.

Jenni straggled out of bed and was first to shower while I started to get my stuff in order.

Man this is the most nerve wracking morning I have experienced in a long time.  In just a few hours we could possible sign up to live in another country for two years.  Where?  What?  And the biggest anxiety inducer – will anyone even want us?  Going throigh our materials one last time, we pick and choose the stuff that will make is with us in the bag for the day.

INVENTORY:

  • Laptop
  • Phone
  • Binder with all school fact sheets
  • pens
  • notebook
  • Envelope with resume materials and thank you cards
  • broken pieces of a home-made bamboo wind chime (don’t know how that made the trip with us)

We have to be out the door by 6:30 to make it to the convention center, find parking and get checked in.  Man Jenni can take a long shower.

Showered, dressed (including tie and jacket) and walking out the door by 6:40.  Not bad.  Walking out the door just minutes before the sun pokes it’s smiling face above the horizon.

Wish us luck.
