These last couple of days, especially today, have been surreal. As my time in Omaha winds down to it's final few days I can't help but think about the bigger picture. If all goes according to plan, next week at this time I'll be in St. Louis on my way home. It's going to be a crazy week....no....a crazy couple of weeks. It's one of those times when I just wish I could fall asleep tonight and wake up when it's all done.
This was quite the week, too. Work here made a counter-offer to keep me here that included a rate increase to provide airfare to go home each weekend. In some ways it's tempting, only because I feel like I've got unfinished business here. But it's time for me to go, so I've spend most of today packing.
I've graduated from paper boxes to plastic tubs and my living room is full of them. Big ones, medium ones, little ones. Moving is a chaotic time and I'm doing my best to keep things as orderly as I can. Still - things are in flux and I have a feeling they will be for a while. In many ways.
I'm as ready as I'll ever be. I'm going home.
Tonight I'm watching Oblivion on HBO. I enjoy this movie for some reason. It's got a great sound-track, full of deep booms that give my sub-woofer a little workout....my dog seems to think it's thunder. It's kinda funny.
It's supposed to get up to 55 degrees here tomorrow. It's a one-day-wonder though - it'll get down to zero by the middle of the week. The more important forecast for me right now is next weekend. So far it looks like good driving weather....not too cold, no precip forecast this week. I hope it's accurate.
Tomorrow it'll be more packing, football, and perhaps some shooting with a friend. It'll be my last down day for a while.
