It has been four months since I started my new job at Shepherd University. Is it really possible? Only four months? There are some days I feel like I have been here for years...and it has been such a good time too! I joke around and say I have only been here six years and four months...We fit...this crew...we really fit. I am so glad we all work together so well. It feels good to have this again. I didn't realize how much I missed this. Ah, well, there is no use thinking of sorrow and the past. It is time to forgive, forget and to focus on the bigger and better things in my life.
The hardest part of moving to the new position and place has been leaving Dan. It was such a fast process. Dad died in March...Dan moved back to Nebraska for the summer in May...I was offered the position in July and had three weeks to pack, find a place, drive across country with Bandit, and start my new job at the end of July. I haven't seen Dan since May 15th and both Bandit and I are missing him terribly. Long distance relationships suck eggs! It's okay though...we speak weekly and if the internet Gods are willing, even Skype. I wouldn't want it to be like this forever, but for now we do what we have to do to survive.
