Not with a Fizzle, But with a BANG!

This week has been pretty strange to say the least. Yesterday, marked weeks until the day that I get on the plane to leave for The Netherlands. I know, I can't believe it is that soon either! Today, I learned that my company is not going to keep me on board after I move to Europe. It's fine, but I was expecting for Loek and I to have that as extra income, and it would have been nice to know before a week and a half before my last day. So, it is a little shocking to suddenly not have a job, like I planned. I didn't mention the possibility before because, I didn't want to jinx it.

I could dwell on this, but I can't help but, be so excited for the time to really get to know my new country, before I can get a work permit for a Dutch company. In 20 days, I move to Europe, and in 21 days I get to be with the love of my life. It has been 6 months since we have seen each other, so needless to say, we are excited! Loek gets the keys to our new apartment a week from Friday. So, my time before I leave will be spent wondering what it will look like when he is done. I will have to help him move the bulk of his stuff the first weekend I am there. That will be interesting, we don't own a car. 

Anyways, I plan to spend my new found freedom, learning nederlands, making use of my museumkaart, cooking the verlo- dinner, and learning to ride my bike. I could not be more ready for the next phase of my life to begin. I plan on spending the next few weeks going out with a BANG!

I'm sorry to hear about the job. Any bit of income is always useful.

There's a fantastic modern masters special exhibit at the Mauritshuis in Den Haag that I'm dying to go to before it ends in December. I was thinking about seeing if others want to go, too, and make a bit of a day of it, perhaps around the end of October. You should definitely come along if you're interested! It will put the museumkaart to good use!

Thanks, I am really okay with it. I just was assured that it was all taken care of and then it wasn't. But yes! I would love to go with you to that!
