Wednesday morning began with the miserable experience of saying farewell to Liz. She went home to California for Christmas. I won't see her in person until next fall (although she promised to Skype with story ideas!)
Then yesterday afternoon, Faith left. She lives in Illinois. The apartment was so very empty without them there, and all I had to do was pack.
Then this morning, Sarah came to get my stuff, since she's storing stuff for me until fall. We went to Starbucks on the way to her house, just because. Then I had to say goodbye to her, too, but this time it wasn't a sad goodbye. The next time I see her will be in the British Isles!
Okay, Europe! Here I come!
