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...).
