I was actually going to say, “Down to the wire,” but I figured that didn’t make a lot of sense. I am down to the wire though and obviously in this picture I was down to the water. In a sense, I was down to the wire in this picture as well.
I took this picture my last night in Wyoming. It was around six or seven at night, which meant that it was nine or ten back home and I had exactly one day to get back to Ohio. Yeah…I didn’t make it home in time. Had I had the PTO to spare, I would have just said forget it. This always seems to happen to me. I’m always seeming to be pushing the wire when I’m hours away from where I need to be. That is where I am at with this move.
My planned move is here in about two weeks. I have to be out by the end of March, but it will be easier to clean and paint if my stuff is not exactly in it. Not to mention, just easier to move around my apartment. I am no where near ready to move and in attempts to get a jump on it, I started packing things and somehow ended up with a chaotic environment. Probably because this apartment is actually big enough for piles of boxes, the zone, and myself. Still, I’m getting down to the wire and need to get a move on.
What is really funny about this…seven years ago at this exact same time, I was in the exact same position as I was preparing to move here in the first place. I know this, because Facebook decided to remind me of that with a post I posted on that day 7 years ago. How strange; especially, since I’m going back to the same place in which I left. Not ideal and part of me has been hoping that job changes their mind and calls me before I leave, but now it is getting too close to matter. Everything happens for a reason and I’m just rolling with it (for now).
I’ve got some big plans for this year that I’m really excited about. If they work out that will be great and should involve some great pictures. There are some beautiful old theaters in Chicago and I’ll only be about two hours from there. I hate driving the I-90 (or is it the I-80…I don’t remember which just that it sucks horribly and has a ridiculous amount of toll roads), but it should be worth it for a day there and taking in a musical. I don’t really know why I have the sudden desire to see a musical. I never have in the past.
I also have some friends that live in Florida. I think that I’m finally going to make the trip there. It’s only been about 4-5 years since they moved there. The Salvador Dalí museum is near there and I love Salvador’s work.
If I do all that, I don’t know if I will make it to go camping with the buffalo in South Dakota, but I might squeeze that one in. I’ll be staying with my parents for a while and believe me…I’m going to need to get away. 🙂
Anyway, I’ve got much to do today so it is time that I bid adieu.
Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.
