"I try to take one day at a time,
but sometimes several days attack me at once"
Since I know my general schedule I spent yesterday morning booking my flight to New Orleans. I was going to drive down but the Go Go Gadget Red Car is making a pretty good case for leaving her with my parents for the summer. I'll fly to New Hampshire over Christmas break and drive her back down to Louisiana, where I will hopefully have a driveway (or even a garage) waiting for her.The problem is now figuring out what to take, what to ship, and what I can do without for seven months. It's not like I have a lot of stuff, but it looks like I'm going to be downsizing even further.Winter is not an easy time to deep clean the car, so I'm sure it's going to be pretty scary when I finally clear everything out... There will be pictures.
I have about two months to go; midterms are next week, spring break the week after, and then only five weeks of classes before I graduate. I'll spend a few weeks working as many hours as I can at the college and then head to New Hampshire for some time with the family before leaving. I've spoken to six elementary schools down there and will need to start phone interviews with them ASAP. We're not out of the woods yet and I'll be happy when the transition is over.
