It is hard to believe, but next Monday at this time, I will be preparing to leave for Italy the very next day. That means that a week from tomorrow, I will actually be FLYING TO ITALY!!!
It's been a long time since my mom told me she was going to go to Italy and asked me to go, too. It seemed so far in the future for so long that it didn't seem like a real thing that I would actually do.
But now, the time approaches. I don't feel ready at all! But then, I also feel very ready. It's a strange feeling. I guess I feel ready to have an adventure, ready to experience new things, ready to be somewhere else for awhile. But, being away from home is always weird. I am used to my routines of home and work, used to the people I see everyday, and most of all, I am used to having 2 Rabbits, 4 cats, and the Chick always with me. This will be the longest time all of us have ever been apart.
Therein lies any apprehension I feel. The separation will be uncomfortable, to say the least.
I mean, look at these faces!!
I mean, really. WHO WOULDN'T MISS THOSE FACES???
I will be missing those faces for 3 whole weeks! GOOD GRIEF!!!
Wish me luck.
