Today was my last day of work for three weeks! I don't go back until July 8.
Here I sit with a glass of wine, knowing that I don't have to go to work tomorrow... yet it still feels like I must have to go to work tomorrow. It'll be nice to sleep in a little bit in the morning.
I have never taken this amount of time off of work. This is a first for me. After three weeks off, I'm not really sure how I'll manage to go back. But I guess I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. For now... 20 days of total bliss. And after Saturday, all of those days should be pretty damn fun and/or relaxing.
It was strange to leave work today. I was actually a little bit reluctant because it felt like I must be forgetting to do something. But I knew that I wasn't... summer is pretty slow for me, so I just had a few things to wrap up, and that was it. I met with my boss and passed off a few things that were still pending, and done!
I had to resist the urge to put "I'M OUT GETTING MARRIED!!!" in my out-of-office auto-reply for my e-mail. That would have been fun. Oh well.
My dad gets into town tomorrow from Virginia. It's all becoming so real, yet I still can't grasp the fact that the wedding will actually be here in 4 days. It's a very strange feeling that I can't quite describe.
Today at work, there were a couple of times when I got a butterfly-like feeling in my stomach. So I think it's slowly sinking in.
And somehow, I managed to lose 3 lbs. without even trying last week. I ate pretty normally, and I had at least a glass of wine almost every night (stress reliever!). Interesting. I hope that weight loss continues (or at least holds steady) through this weekend! It'd be nice to be feeling really good by being down a few pounds.
We're in the homestretch now, people. It's really almost here.
