TRS-Coming to a City Near You

Some good news and some bad news, internet peeps.

The Good News...I may be coming to a city near you!?!
That is right...for my lovely recruitment job I am going to be in the following cities:
Atlanta, GA
Miami, FL
Fort Myers, FL
Tampa, FL
Orlando, FL
Naples, FL
Houston, TX
Dallas, TX
Tallahassee, FL
Jacksonville, FL
Gainesville, FL
Chapel Hill, NC
Davidson, NC

Here is the bad news: The way my schedule works out I will be spending 2-3 week periods away from KW and the Penny.

It hasn't hit really yet, but it will not be pretty. I hate being away from KW for more than 4 days (and that is a lot better than 2 years ago where 1 night would send me into apoplectic shock).

However, I do think that it will have some fun points: absence making the heart grow fonder and all...but the good thing on the KW front is that he is looking into coming and meeting me on a couple of the trips!!! work will pay for some of it (esp. the ones where he is looking for a job or where we have free room and board) and on the ones where work can't pay...we have an expedia ticket we need to redeem...so we may end up taking our first vacation alone in quite some time!!! That is enough to get me over the "I'm going to miss him so much" hump.

The really awesome silver lining: I will have extra days in some of those cities because work doesn't want to fly me back home and out again for 1 day. So, that means...I can meet my internet peeps on my days off.

Now, if you are one of those people that are wary of meeting internet friends (then you probably aren't a blogger, we have no sense of self preservation, right?), turn away. But if you live in or around the cities listed above and would like to meet for coffee, I WOULD LOVE TO MEET YOU!

The only reason I bring this up is because I am setting travel plans and if I can meet you, I don't want to be in another city on accident!

So, how bout it intenet besties...wanna meet? It would def. be something blog about.

If you don't stop by my folks house, they will hunt you down! They're already expecting you. Can't get away- dad works on campus and is going to be looking for you at the career fair!

Oh Miss Roaming...

Whoo-hoo! Rooooaaddd trip!

Right.

The Spousal Unit did this for years, including the first few years we were together and it was *so* hard to be apart. Granted, we weren't married then (I know, how very UnPrincesslike to have been living 'without benefit of paper') so we probably hadn't hit the point of absence making the heart grow fonder.

On the other hand........we have done the same thing ourselves and have experienced the fun of an extra day or two in cities big enough to have cool shopping, restaurants, museums and such, so yee-hah! (Yeah, I know, this can be tedious also.)

Good for you Miss Alex.. we hope you have a splendid trip with plenty of down time to take care of you and do special things for *you.*

Grins & giggles,
TP

Wrong side of the country, Sweetie. :-) Sounds like an EXHAUSTING trip!

Erin said...

The dog has pretty much taken away any chance of going to Ann Arbor this fall, boo!

GranolaGirl said...

I might could meet you in Dallas... we wanted to take a road trip (one of my cousin's just moved there). Let me know when you'll be there.

Carol said...

How exciting can't wait to hear about all your meeting up adventures.

Allison R said...

That's a crazy schedule! Look me up when you're in Dallas, TX

Curtis said...

I'm obviously close to ATL. You gotta see the baby!

Patrice said...

I'm so jealous! I wish I could just roam the US and meet all my bloggy friends! I'm from Dallas, but i'll be in MO by the time you come down here!
