Constantly Moving

I thought I would update everyone on what's been going on in the past couple of weeks. I have started week three of training. I'll be in Nashville and then Portland this week. Last week was Charlotte. I'm so very tired of planes, airports, shuttles, delays, and layovers. Not to mention hotels and eating out every meal.

Each week is physically, emotionally, and mentally draining. We are given so much information that at the end of the day I couldn't tell you my name. Doing my presentation in front of my directors last week was so stressful. Not to mention missing my guy. I hate leaving. It sucks so bad to be gone for 8 or 10 days straight with not much time to even talk on the phone.

I have all my stuff in my new apartment thanks to my amazing sister. But I haven't had a chance to even get things put away. It's bugging me. I would much rather stay home this week and next to get it all settled.

I went this morning to get my car title and tag, car insurance, and my MS driver's license. I'm officially a MS resident again. Yay!!!

I'm stuck at the gate with our flight delayed. Lovely. Have I mentioned that I hate flying?

A World Away

Tonight I find myself in Pittsburgh, PA.  I'm doing a week of training for my new job.  I was a mix of excited/nervous/sad.  I think it's going to be a good week, but I'm going to miss home.  I already miss my other half.  There will be a couple days where I won't get to talk long, if at all because of his work schedule and the time difference here.  Bummer.  :(

I have a roommate this trip. I wasn't exactly thrilled.  I guess it feels kinda like camp or some such.  Not very adult-like.  Oh well.  She's nice, but is asleep right now.  So I have to be quiet.  Boo.  I'd much rather have my own room, where I could watch tv or talk on the phone.

I'm not sure I'm going to like this being gone and traveling thing. Yes, there will be things that are neat about it, but I have a feeling on those weeks where I'm gone three nights straight that it's going to get lonely.  Not a fan of that.  Nonetheless, I have a job to do.  Gotta make that green.  Oh fun.  I've never particularly been fond of having a job.  Can't I just stay home?
