Ever since I accepted the job in Dakar, I’ve been telling people when they ask when we are leaving, “Not until August 2nd.” Well, ever since someone pointed out to me that June 2nd meant that August 2nd is only two months away, it seems A LOT closer! Now I know June and August are two months apart, but with the busyness of getting our shipment prepared, the end of school concerts, honors nights, etc., it still seemed very far away. Now it’s right around the corner. I’m hoping at some point to be done sorting, organizing and driving things to the Goodwill and be able to enjoy our family and friends as much as possible during our time here, but right now it seems like the boxes that have come home from school are never going to be all the way unpacked.
Anyone who gives me a countdown is going to get a knuckle sandwich.
