2 days, 2 hours, 48 minutes, and 22 seconds from now!
I managed to achieve two goals last night: to stay up until 2am for time-change adjustment, and to get all my boxes packed! Whoo Hoo! Done! And boy am I exhausted! I am so grateful that 98% of everything is packed! I just have to wrap some framed artwork, finalize my box of cosmetics and liquids for shipping, and organize the suitcases that I will take to Paris and then on to Chengdu.
It is absolutely DOABLE to get everything else done today and tomorrow! I’m grateful my roomie said he would help me get the boxes to the PO, because that job was a potential killer—9 boxes weighing 30-60 lbs. each!! I think they are all within the Chinese restriction of 66 lbs, and I managed to get everything that was important—even my SCUBA gear! Whoo Hoo! I’m going to leave my6 boxes of journals at a friend’s, sadly, but prepare them to ship so that I can either get them later, or they will be easy to ship when I come back to visit in 2 years...!
I’m grateful it’s almost all done, even though I am very, very, very, very, very tired!
I’m grateful I get to see many of my Lil Peeps again, at our last Dinner Around The World today! I’ll be super grateful for the hours-long nap I plan on afterward, then a farewell and celebratory dinner with my besties who have helped me in innumerable ways since my return from Korea. I am grateful I survived this sojourn in ATX, because it wasn’t at all easy!!
I’m grateful that I’ll be in Paris on my Half Birthday!
I’m grateful I am moving to China!
I’m grateful for all the visualizations and positive affirmations I have done for years that have come to fruition!
I am grateful for so much!!!
