11 days … time for an awesome weekend!

August 13, 2010

So, my countdown is now at 11 days … I skipped writing a post yesterday just in an attempt to stop thinking about PC for awhile. It didn’t really work, but at least you weren’t subjected to my endless ramblings🙂 but here’s another one.

I’m sure you all know exactly what I’m talking about when I say thinking about PC all the time. It’s seriously a constant nag in my brain. My phone is always at my side and I’m constantly checking the screen to see if I missed a call or something … someone in another blog said they felt like they were dating PC – seriously, that’s what it feels like to constantly be watching the phone. At work I have my email open in the corner of my desk and am constantly looking over to see that (1 new) box appear saying I have new mail. When it does happen it’s usually junk mail and with frustration I delete it and tell myself I won’t check again for at least 10 minutes, 20 minutes, an hour … I usually don’t make it five.

I’d really love to stop thinking about it, but this deadline is approaching so soon and I’m nervous. I know there is still plenty of time for PC to contact me regarding my current nomination – sometimes they clear you through placement in a day … but it is still making me anxious. This is why I’m looking forward to this weekend – full of distractions!!! I know PC won’t contact me over the weekend so Monday (if nothing happens today) is my next day of stress. So, I’m hoping this weekend goes by fast with everything I have planned.

Tomorrow isa good friend’s bachelorette party and oh my goodness it’s going to be one to remember. Her sister is planning it and I must say, it’s going to be a very interesting time. Putt putt in the afternoon, then dinner, a limo into Seattle, clubbing all night, and who knows what else. It’s like an all day affair. Clubbing isn’t really my scene, but for her I’d do anything … we’ll see how that goes.

So tonight is pizza with my best friend, tomorrow at noon starts the party (yes, noon, as I said, an all day affair), out late, then work all day Sunday (most likely as a 1/2 zombie from the night before), and straight to bed at 6am … no time in there for PC thoughts right? We’ll see🙂

And I’m not going to update tomorrow or Sunday … I’m boycotting the sites for at least those two days! … well, unless I hear something today.

    Kylene,
    I started reading your blog tonight. I feel like you have written everything that I have gone through with a few minor changes. I also have been a teacher for the last 16 years. I took this year off to get a Master’s in Nonprofit Management. I was nominated to go to Mozambique the end of Sept. I was not invited because they could not accommodate a medical issue. So now I am waiting to be invited for anything, anywhere. I will be following your blog and now I’m encouraged to start using this blog forum along with the other one I use “Mid-Career Crisis, Saving My Soul”. Good luck and who knows we could end up in the same place.

    Have a blast this weekend! Try not to think about PC.. they’ll probably only call you during M – F business hours anyway, right?!

    Thanks for your support. I’m hoping to receive my invitation tomorrow for either Tonga or Samoa. Looks like we’ll get to at least get together in LA and on a trans-Pacific flight. I hope you get your invitation call very soon!

      Thanks Nancy! I have my phone at my side 24/7 just in case (even though I know they’ll only call during normal business hours!). I’ll be sure to let you know as soon as I hear something … and hopefully you’re right that we’ll at least get to meet in LA, if not serve together! Congrats again.
