I’ve lived in Las Vegas for 20 years and loved it. I always wondered what other city could get me to leave the “Entertainment Capital of the World”? Now I know, an experience of a lifetime, that’s what.
After mapping out the places we were going, it was now time to get immunization shots. Thanks to my job’s awesome insurance plan, ALL immunizations were covered 100%. Because of that I got above and beyond what was recommended. Some of the immunizations come in a series, so it’s important to start this process early.
Td (Tetanus, Diphtheria)
Hepatitis A (Hep A)
Hepatitis A/Hepatitis B combination
Hepatitis B (Hep B)
MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella)
Next was telling my job I was NEVER coming back. That was the most fun. I think deep down inside, most Americans dream of telling their boss “I quit!”. Even though I loved my part time job and had fun, it was a pleasure telling them I was leaving and never coming back again. The management was excited for me and said they didn’t blame me one bit. Who would? Good bye Corporate America!!!
Now it’s time to part from my most prized possession. My car. I worked so hard for this car and paid it off years ago. That car was my rocket ship. I used it for any situation I wanted to get to or get out of. I loved that thing. I always wanted a black sports car and here it was. I dreaded selling it to someone only because of what it meant to me. I know it sounds crazy but that was my baby. But I would trade that thing in a hundred times over for this trip. I sold it to a nice guy who loved it as much as I did. I was happy to know it was going to someone who would cherish it like I did. Good bye BMW.
So now what? Everything I love and know is pretty much gone except the small amount of personal things that I wanted to keep (formal outfit for a funeral or event, a few journals, a couple of large Apple monitors, a small bag of summer and winter clothes (I may or may not want later) and a statue from Bali we bought 10 years ago. We rented a small storage unit down the street and stowed it away. After packing all those things up I realized that I wouldn’t miss any of that stuff if I never saw it again.
