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 [ profile] slownewsday and [ 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.
