I felt the need to find a quote to help me get through the next few days. So much changing at a pace that seems very quick. Yes, I signed up for this, but…
One disadvantage to being human is that we second guess ourselves. I have had trips when I was much younger and I said yes, “I’ll go on that trip” and wound up sleeping in the bathtub. I am sure that I don’t want to do that again. You become concerned about where are you going to live for this time, and friends say, “Have you found a place to live yet”. As a semi-responsible adult I feel the pressure to check things out .
There are some drawbacks to this process. Driving distance is over 4,000 miles and if I were driving it would take me 3+ days to make the trip. Plus there is a 4 hour time difference. So calling doesn’t always work. I can’t drive by and see the places. I have no clue what the neighborhood is like. So we are truly taking a blind leap of faith.
In the meantime, I am trying to wrap things up here at home, figure out what clothes to pack, do I have enough crafty, creative projects to work on while I am in Alaska. Of course, they have store to buy supplies, but that defeats my purposes a little bit.
You all have seen clip art of arrows going every direction, that right now is my brain. I am still very sure this is a good thing to say yes to.
