I'm still in Virginia, and if feels like I've been here FOREVER! I hit the wall a couple days ago and it's just been dragging on and on. I'm SO ready to go home. I'm learning a lot at work and this is some of the most important training I've been to. It's a GREAT class, but I just feel so homesick! I'm not one to be homesick normally. When I think of Greg, Clyde, and the bunnies, I just want to cry, because I miss them so much! I call Greg every day and hear all about everything I'm missing with Clyde. It's hard! I just want to be home snuggling with them.
There have been times when I've wanted to go on international assignments for work that last 30 to 90 days and now I'm realizing it would be really really hard to be away that long, even if it was for an awesome experience.
I think this trip has also been rough because the weather has been horrendous! They are literally calling this the Blizzard of 2010 and talking about all the records this snow has broken in VA/DC. I miss snow sometimes living down south, but this has been ridiculous! We got about 2-3 feet over the weekend and then about 10 inches today. I'm just hoping I can dig out and can drive home on Friday. The snow prevented me from seeing about 3-4 friends I had hoped to get together with while up here, so that was a bummer.
Here's a couple pictures of the view from my hotel room:
I've met some nice people that I'll probably keep in touch with though and it's always good to have work contacts.
I can't wait to get home to my family!
