500 Miles

It’s been a long week, but I’m finally done with training. Tomorrow, I fly solo.

Today, I just really tried to relax as much as possible. We didn’t do dinner and movie with the in-laws tonight because my mother-in-law is out of town. Instead we ordered take out, which is something that I never do. We rented Benny & Joon. I absolutely love that movie. I don't think I've watched it in about ten years. I forgot that it had the Proclaimers' song, I'm Gonna Be (500 miles), in it. I know what songs going to be bouncing through my head for the next week.

I stopped into my old job today to pick up my last paycheck. I should have gone in earlier in the day, when there aren’t a lot of customers so that I could visit with my former coworkers more. I find that right now I’m so preoccupied with the changes that are happening in my own life right now I just don’t feel like a very good conversationalist.

I’m thinking of trying to pick up a shift a week at the restaurant. There really is no practical reason for me to do so though. I think I just don’t want to lose the ties that I’ve made there. Also, the extra money never hurts.

My husband and I renewed our lease so that it ends next February and with my longer commute I’m already thinking ahead to which area we want to move to. It would be much more practical and economical for us to move outside of the Austin and into one of the surrounding towns, but I just can’t tell you know much I just don’t want to do that. I know it’s not rational and that it’s just superficial details. I guess I have lots of time to think about it.

it is very rational to be choosy about where one plants themself to live. for where one plants, one grows and blossoms- or doesn't.
we have experience with this already! so it is rational dammit!!!
peace and love and 500 miles!
