The whole Smith household has been anxious and tired. I've been finding myself nearly overcome by emotion at various times for no reason at all. Needless to say (especially since I've said it plenty of times before) we're not so much excited leaving. In the interest of sanity here is a list of things that I am excited about RE: moving back stateside:
  • waffles, either from Tracy (the best waitress ever) or corn meal waffles from scratch off our own waffle iron;
  • Tacos, from the taco truck;
  • sour mix (apparently, who knew they didn't have it in this country–no whiskey sour for me and don't even ask what they attempted to give me);
  • Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage;
  • the end of Sara and mine's separate social lives with the reintroduction of Regular Babysitters™ and/or child friendly restaurants and events;
  • putting together some sort of improv project (assuming we stay in the 'Kan long enough);
  • working again;
  • access to a photo studio;
  • disposable income (eventually).
Today we're having a follow-up breakfast to my night out with the some of my GURPS group, followed by laying low. Monday Sara will make her last trip to the library and we'll start cleaning the flat. Tuesday we'll make the final push to clean and I'll have to trek out to the airport to pick up the car for the Long Drive™. We'll have a couple of visitors (including our final walkthrough with our landlord) and then to bed for our 7 am departure Wednesday morning. Assuming we hit London town at the right time (and I really hope we do) we'll have dinner with [livejournal.com profile] slownewsday and [livejournal.com profile] giantlaser. Which is the most appropriate way to bring this adventure to a close: by sharing a last meal here with the same friends we shared the first one.

Dammit. I just made myself tear up all over again.

I think that pretty much hits the nail on the head. I especially do not do the waiting limbo thing so well... 2 days!

If it helps at all, I'm jealous of the taco opportunities you will be having shortly.

Feel free to come to our place for tacos whenever you'd like. Also you'll be inheriting a big thing of McCormick taco seasoning (I mean costco big). See you tomorrow!

I can imagine it's tough. Hang in there-- I'm sending good thoughts to you guys, especially as you make the trek home. Hope to see you in person real soon!

Crap, that made me tear up, too. Damn you and your nice words.

Yeah, sorry about that... See you in two days!

Two days! W00t! Where do you want to go for dinner? Pub? Indian? Greek? French? Think on't, we'll see you soon!
