… that Alan will fly off to start his new job, and Kiki and I will be left here with all the mess!! Yikes. I think I am still in a bit of denial – to me, it feels like he’s just going on a business trip, and he’ll be back in a few days. Weird. Well, we have to leave for the airport pretty soon; it’s snowing today (of course) so it’ll be a bit more of a trip out there…. at least it looks like all the airports he’s hitting are clear and fine. My gut pain is easing up, so it looks like I’ll be out of the woods soon. Must’ve been the popcorn that I knew better than to eat – duh. Sigh…. this is not fun. I don’t want him to go without us.
