The countdown…

Only thiiiiiis much longer!! :p

Well it’s getting closer, that’s for sure. Today is Monday, August 27th. My last day at Best Buy is Thursday, September 6th (10 days away) and I’m taking off to Vancouver on September 17th (21 days away), and boarding the cruise from Hawaii to Australia on September 25th (30 days away).

Wow.

It’s been a busy few weeks as I’ve begun to wrap up my “retail life”… I’ve been doing a lot of cleaning of rooms, drawers, paperwork, filing cabinets, mailboxes and anything else I can get my hands on. I’ve received some truly nice emails, phone calls, tweets and messages from people I’ve met and worked with over the years, and I’m going to be sending out a big email blast to a bunch of people I’ve worked with at our corporate office soon to say “thanks and goodbye!”, though I’m also really looking forward to meeting some of these people when I head down to BC.

I still have a HUGE list of things to do, nowhere near prepared to leave, so I’ve got some work to do here – though I will have some more time as of the 6th, which will be the first time I haven’t been working full time (or pretty close to it) in probably about or around 10 years, 6 of those with Best Buy.

At this point I can really feel myself needing/wanting a “vacation”, so I’m really glad that I planned Hawaii and the Cruise at the beginning of the trip. It’s been a busy few months, it’s going to be a busy month, and it’s going to be a VERY busy year. I’m still going back and forth on China and India, but I’m going to get my VISA for both of them anyway (why not), and I’m leaning towards saying “yes” to both. We’ll see how it goes.

Other than that, still going back and forth on the idea of a Macbook Air (really back and forth), scouting around for a really good back pack, and starting to try to reach out and find people along the way to stop in and say hello to!

So this is a pretty boring post, but I wanted to post something so too bad! Maybe the next one will be more exciting. For now… g’night!
