Yeah! I've almost made it! In reflecting back on the past 12 days I have definitely confirmed / re-confirmed some very important things about myself:
1.) I do not want to live by myself. I value human companionship too much.
2.) I prefer outdoor animals. I may not be the biggest animal person (orca whales are another story!), but outdoor is preferable.
3.) I value my family very much and have missed not spending time with them.
4.) I am a bigger fan of 4th of July fireworks than I thought; especially when I can't see them.
But, hey, it was an experience. Thanks for taking the journey with me. It's been fun having you along. :) Tomorrow night I sleep in MY OWN BED!!!!
