[livejournal.com profile] thinkpositive30: day 12

posted by [personal profile] stellaluna at 08:42pm on 17/02/2010 under
Back at work today, and, while it was a fairly quiet day, I'm glad that this is going to be a short week for me. I'm still feeling congested and sore throat-y and just sort of generally wrung out and tired.

I decided to start pricing fares for June today, figuring the earlier the better, and I ended up booking a red-eye flight out of LAX to Atlanta, leaving at midnight on Friday, June 4, and getting into Atlanta at 7:15 the next morning. It was only $139 with tax for the one-way ticket, so I'm very pleased, as that's about $300 less than what I was expecting.

(It's a one-way because we're planning to drive back to L.A. beginning the following Monday, after the movers show up and collect most of [livejournal.com profile] scarletts_awry's things. We're both really looking forward to doing the cross-country drive and making some stops to see things that we're interested in.)

Buying the ticket made the whole thing feel really, really real. We're doing this!

The weather was beautiful and sunny again today. I only needed to wear a lightweight jacket in the morning and evening, and didn't bother with it at all when I went outside at lunchtime.
Mood:: pleased

Cross-country roadtrip! Awesome! I can see how you're looking forward to that. Apart from it crowning the move, but that goes without saying. Do you know what you're going to visit yet?

Life without jackets... I can't quite remember how that feels, but we'll get there eventually, too. For now, the city's still frozen. But at least it's sunny today and the sky is blue. Yay.

We do have a few ideas in mind already, including Graceland, the Delta Blues Museum, New Orleans, and the Grand Canyon. It's going to be very exciting, and we're both really looking forward to the chance to see more of the country.

Yay for blue skies and sun! Unfortunately, today here we were back to damp and overcast (and it's raining right now), and it looks like we're in for a fair amount of rain over the next week, too. *sigh* So close and yet so far...
