I am down to one day left at work until I am off for two weeks and 4 days left until I’m on a plane on my way to the UK.
Have I packed? No. That’s a weird thing for me because I usually start tossing stuff in my bag (or in a pile next to it) a week or two before. I have not even pulled out my bag with the power adapters yet. I’ll start gathering things this weekend.
I did purchase myself a coat. It’s beautiful and I’m excited about it. I know that sounds weird but, I live in California and I don’t own a coat. If it gets cold I toss on a sweatshirt or sweater. If it’s raining I put on a rain jacket (nothing for warmth, it’s just a waterproof shell to keep me dry). So owning an actual coat feels so…grown up and fancy. But in the UK, particularly in the highlands I need a coat.
But I am starting to get excited. I planned an awesome trip! I packed a lot into a short period of time because I don’t get out much anymore so I want to see and do as much as possible.
I still have a lot to do before I leave, but the anticipation is building.
