Jeez, it's taken me long enough to post today, huh?
Yesterday was my last day at work and my awesome co-workers took me out to lunch at Bootlegger's, which is always yum. They all chipped in for a couple of gift cards to chain restaurants, which will be put to good use on our trip cross-country. So nice.
Lori arrived yesterday afternoon and last night a bunch of us had some drinks at Ovation Lounge in Green Valley Ranch and then stayed for my favorite classic rock tribute band, Yellow Brick Road. Oh, it was so much fun! I have the absolute best, best, BEST friends on earth. I'm so incredibly lucky!
We danced our asses off and holy crap, I stayed up until 3 o'clock in the morning, which is the latest I've stayed up in a long, long time. Needless to say, I was moving pretty slowly this morning, but by afternoon I got into gear and increased the productivity. Still a lot to do, but we'll get everything moved into the storage bin by tomorrow night. Then we'll be hitting the road on Monday after we meet Julie from 47 and Starting Over for breakfast at the Omelet House. Can't. wait. to see her--it's been almost a year since her visit to Vegas last year.
I am so freaking excited. I don't know what time we'll realistically hit the road on Monday, but we'll make our way toward Santa Fe, which is our first real stop. I have a dear friend who lives there, and we'll stay probably two nights so we can take a trip up to Taos. Lori's off from work through Memorial Day weekend, and we're gonna go wherever the road leads us.
I'm so lucky! I have never lived in the present moment like I am right now. There are still so many unknowns about the next few months, but I definitely plan on coming back to Vegas. I have a couple of speaking gigs here in Vegas scheduled for July, and I'll fly back for a couple of weeks then. But beyond that... no idea. Life will unfold exactly as it should.
I'm going to try to blog every day from the road. I just got a new T-Mobile version of the i-Phone, so hopefully I'll be able to figure that friggin' thing out and post some videos as well. Right now I'm trying to get simple texting down.
Lots to look forward to. LOTS!!!
