Yesterday was my last day at work. I was so busy I hardly noticed that it was my last day! I was there over the weekend with my husband and sister getting everything packed. WOW! Can you accumulate some stuff over 15 years?? I had drinks with some friends from work on Friday and my mom had a little gathering for me on Sunday that work friends and others came to - it was nice to see everyone since I am not exactly sure when I will see them again : )
I have everything packed at home now too. I have just a few last minute things to finish and my brother Marc is coming in for the day to see me. My younger son will be home Thursday to take me to the airport on Friday. I am having butterflies!!!
I know we have seen many news reports about unrest in Egypt and other places in the Middle East. Many of you have expressed concern about my safety. I have communicated with my coworkers living in Dhahran and they have assured me it is perfectly safe where I will be. They are not seeing any problems there and the compound I will live on is very secure. I will certainly appreciate all of your prayers (I will be praying too!) and I would not go if I felt I was truly in any danger.
I will be keeping my personal email address - firstname.lastname@example.org. I will also have a phone number with a 615 area code - if you would like to have that number please email me. You can look me up on Skype too...I will give you that info if you email me.....
It will take a few days before I have internet access again....so the next time I post it will be from the Kingdom.
I appreciate prayers for my family remaining stateside too!!
