After much thought and the support of the best man on the face of the earth, I have decided to stay until the end of February.
Originally, I was going to leave on February 23rd, so I can make it home in time for Kevin’s birthday, which is on the 24th. It will be the first time I’ve missed it since we started dating in mid-2000. We plan to celebrate when I return and do something really special to make up for it.
Those five extra days are important to me, though. I want to finish what I started. I was one of the few people that moved into Celebration Station on December 16th and I want to be one of the few people that move out on the last day. So, the little countdown at the top will change to reflect the new date I return home.
