On the fly...

Two days ago, I found out I was accepted into a lovely Volunteer program.
The exciting part: I'll spend the next 10 months teaching in Massachusetts.
The exasperating part: I had one day to pack up everything I could fit in my car, and hardly a spare moment to say goodbye to Boulder. Yesterday was spent packing and cleaning like a maniac, with my angelic godsend of a cousin who drove out from Denver to help... I wouldn't have been able to do it without her.
And then last night, I went bouldering in the mountains, digging my fingers into that Rocky Mountain Rock for one last time.
Today, I drove about 1,000 miles. The mountains disappeared so quickly from my rearview mirror. Kansas was hot as Hades. And Columbia, Missouri? Well... I'm grateful for this hotel bed, but that's about it.
What a whirlwind.
...God knows I'm at my best when I'm on my toes (which is why I love wearing heels...).

  1. Oh my gosh, what an adventure!!! Exciting but daunting at the same time - let us all know how it goes, I've got my fingers crossed you have an amazing time! And as for Much Ado About Nothing - this makes me want to see it all over again, I adore the movie version. The setting in sunshine-y Italy, the song, the sheer revelry and happiness of it. One of my favourite movie scenes of all time is Benedict telling Beatrice, "I do love nothing in the world so well as you." SO good!!! :) all the best my lovely xxx
