Good news! I’ve got a standby ticket and should be able to fly out this Wednesday!
All of this has felt so surreal the last few weeks… I’ve been going through the motions and getting ready to leave but it wasn’t fully sinking it. When my Mom told me this morning that her flight attendant friend looked at flight information and said this Wednesday should work it really hit me!
In less than 1week I will no longer be in California anymore…. my first reaction was “I’m so sad!!!!” I’m very excited to go see my relatives and to start a new life in France, but I’m also really going to miss California! I’ve lived here for 10 years; California has become home!
It feels very bitter-sweet.
This means you all need to hurry up if you still want to see me! I’m free Saturday afternoon and Sunday in San Jose and then will come back to Livermore/Pleasanton Tuesday, if not Monday.
