We are leaving in 2 more days, and I am more than excited. I'm nervous about leaving my life and my schedule, and leaving others to take care of our house and our cats, not that the people taking care of our house aren't more than capable (THANKS in advance to Guv and Amanda, Mom and Gary, Emily and Jon, Ben, Nick and Jenn!!!). I am just someone who lives by routine and schedules and it's hard to get away from that. On the other hand, I have had basically the same schedule for a few years now, and am in a rut in how I live my life. It's become too predictable, and I just do the same shit all the time and I need to get away from it for a while to keep me sane. I am also excited because this is me and Dave's 3rd real vacation together in 6 1/2 years of being together, so it's nice that we get to spend like 6 straight weeks together, as well as the fact that I get to marry Dave who I absolutely love and who is also my best friend. The "wedding" doesn't mean that much to me, I mean, we really just want to BE married, we don't care about GETTING married. We know where we stand, and that's what is important to me, I feel like it's kind of a private thing anyways. So, those are my thoughts on the day before the day before we leave. I wanted to post our tentative schedule so people might know where we are and how long we are going to each place. I guess it's also a record for myself. I'm looking forward to doing more writing, and documenting this amazing adventure we are about to embark on, so I hope whoever reads this enjoys the output on here. One more day.

Now that this class is over, I plan to keep using this blog for other work I do outside of school. This Saturday (May 16th), Dave and I are leaving to start our trip out west and back, and are getting married along the way. In Vegas. In a drive-thru. Anyways, I'm putting up our map and stuff now so whoever wants to see what we are doing can do so. These directions are not set in stone, but kind of a guideline of where we are going. I'll be posting as often as I can, but this site is kind of a pain in the ass to upload large photos to, so you can also check out my flickr site to see if I've uploaded stuff there (www.flickr.com/photos/leahjanefisher/). If you don't see anything on either site then I haven't had internet access, which will peobably be the case for the first 2 weeks. So, keep checking back to see what we are doing. We'll be back on the 25th!
