Pink fairy

Today's the day!

Apartment is about as empty as when we came. Except for all the trash. And the dustbunnies. They are charging us a mandatory cleaning fee, so they can earn it by taking all the trash out themselves. I have no inclination to be nice to the landlord or the building people. Or anyone at the moment.

I had a long shower just now (we're in a hotel for our last night)....it felt amazing after the long hot day we had yesterday. Didn't have to push the damn hot water button on the water heater 15 million times for it to stay on. I feel refreshed and ready to deal with the last details of today. I'll write more about yesterday later, maybe on the plane.

Today's the day. We're leaving. Finally. I have a sense of sadness, mainly because i've never been able to fully accept living here, but at the same time, I am thrilled to be leaving.

THRILLED!

See you all on the other side.
