So many times things do not turn out as hoped or planned for. This summer has been really fun and the things that we planned for actually turned out and we had a blast - but all good things must come to a screeching stop and things are turned upside down.
This week Tom informed me that there were a possibility of him starting a new project that would potentially cause a big change in our comfortable life. The notion of Tom starting on a new project and actually staying out in the field was a crazy possibility and one that would last thru the end of the year. After a big pow-wow meeting yesterday at his office he determined that he would not be staying out in the field, but instead would be working long hours and would start next week Wednesday.
The problem with that was that we were to be on vacation next week. Not only would he be working on a new project, the project he is currently working on is located in Utah, so he has been traveling there and left this morning for a couple of days. So our vacation time together has been cut down to 3 full days and not much time to do so much that we had planned on.
I was looking forward to just hanging out with Tom and taking care of things around the house - as we have been neglecting so much during the last couple of months. I should be thankful, he could have started on Monday instead of Wednesday.
Flexibility is key here. I was looking forward to riding the Peach of a Century at the end of the month and that is up in the air now as well as the Gresham Jazz 5K run. We'll see how things go in the next couple of weeks.
I don' think that I'll be making any more plans for the rest of the year.
