It's a Done Deal

We're finished!

Our training here in Vancouver, Canada, finished on Monday and we "graduated," on Tuesday!

Tuesday and Wednesday we said all of our goodbyes to all of our friends. :(

And really, it was just on Tuesday, because by Tuesday afternoon, around 3 pm, my annual summer head cold arrived in full force.

Just in time for our first day of vacation, right?

I spent most of Tuesday, Wednesday, and an inebriated {Via Nyquil} Thursday in bed. I awoke from my medicated stupor at 3 on Thursday, only to realize that all of our buddies, from 6 months of training were gone.

I'm pretty sad about it.

But, I am finding ways to fill my time, including intense cleaning.

So far, I've vacuumed, swept, mopped, washed the windows and our front door, done several loads of laundry and dishes, cooked, baked, and sanitized our trash can (I know, I'm weird.)

Then, today topped it all off when I decided to lop off my hair.

And I really mean I decided to lop off my own hair.

As in, I cut it myself.

Goodbye four inches!

It's the shortest it's been in over 5 years!

All because I saw this picture on facebook of me:

And I decided, when your hair looks like it could also be your beard, it's time to chop it.

It's too short right now, and I don't like it at all, but I know that it will grow back quickly. Plus, at least for the first couple weeks in the desert it will be short and manageable!

2 Weeks and 5 days until the big move....
