Well Dan is now flying to Addis Ababa. It seems like there is someone leaving from his 160th class every day. Pack out took 12 hours last Thursday, yes that is right 12 hours! Even the cats where tired after (evident of picture below). I don't even know how they do a full house. I thought it would take only half a day but guess we know for the future.
Yesterday I took Dan to the airport for his flight to Addis. Before the airport we completed last minute errands for a cell phone charger, international adapter and to return a few unneeded items that were purchased for the cats travel.
We also stopped at 5 guys for a last supper of sorts. while driving around the block in Old Town three times looking for place to park, one opened up right in front of the restaurant, yes! Except...I don't know how to parallel park. That probably seems weird to most people but in the state of Florida (where we are from) there is almost no parallel parking so it isn't required to learn on the driver’s test. Luckily Dan was better at it than me and so we traded and he parked my car. The burgers were great as always.
We got to the airport 3 1/2 hours early, which turned out great because Dan had to wait behind a family with 10,000 pieces of luggage to get checked in and then found out he could only take one carry-on. Luckily they checked the third for free since it was small. From Dulles airport he flew to Frankfurt and had a 5 hour layover. Currently I am guessing he is flying somewhere over the Mediterranean on his way to Addis. He arrives fairly late at night (7 hour time difference) and then starts work immediately on Tuesday. No time to recover from Jet lag. Guess that is what this weekend is for.
What hit me really hard is when Dan handed over his keys to the apartment.
As most of you know I will be joining him in November after we get married. I have the fun task of cleaning up, but at least I have the cats for company. I am happy to still have them. They are contracted to fly out on the 6th of July to Addis. They actually worry me more than anything because they are flying alone. They will have to stop in Frankfurt for a night in the animal lounge and they don't understand German, haha. I think by the time they get to Dan they will be pretty mad but hopefully they will get over it soon after they see the new house.
For myself, I am currently in my last week with my job and will be enjoying the 4th of July weekend with my parents here in DC before moving home. This way I will be in town to do wedding planning, spend time with family and friends before moving in November and of course save money. Hopefully I will find a new job soon. If you know of anything in Orlando I am all ears!
