Today I woke up around 7:30 but I had nowhere to go. I just opened my eyes, saw the sun shining through the panels on the window and stayed away. I knew today was the last full day I'd have in California because I was becoming a resident of Arizona.
We didn't do much, organized and packed up the cars for the road trip tomorrow. That wasn't as painful as I thought it would be, thank to Chris and his ability to pack up the house while I was finishing out my last days of work at UC San Diego. We had tons of room to spare in the car too! That is, until I realized we still had a few bags of clothes upstairs that had not been considered. Whoops. SMH.
Dad got off around 3pm and during that time I had taken a peaceful midday nap... that was unusual, I don't think I've had one of those in a couple of years lol. Anyhow, I woke up and it was time to go and get some grub, the last supper, with the family.
I chose Roadhouse, a steakhouse since I was craving steak. Unfortunately, the steak wasn't as satisfying as I had hoped, ugh, but I'm still thankful I ate.
It was a bittersweet moment, me sitting there next to my dad, having our last meal together... it was actually kind of sad, in retrospect, but I managed to get through. :)
I slept on a full and satisfied stomach, but I still had some sadness. Sadness that tomorrow I was leaving. Everyone was going to work and I was... well... going to be moving... permanently.
