Before you have time to be a hater, this dog is the most amazing animal on the planet and he can rock a hoodie like nobody's business. Secondly, I forced my Mom to buy him a hoodie because she was making him wear a sweater. Let the dog have some dignity, I say. Beyond all of that, I head off to Sydney again tomorrow. I am nervous, excited, and anxious. To be honest, I have more anxiety this time than I did last year on this very day when I was going the first time. I think that it is because I am going back to a stable environment, as lame as that may sound. The first time, I knew nothing. I didn't have anyone or anything to help me along and now I do. I am grateful to be going back to a great job, work with awesome people, and be a part of a great organization but for some reason, I am nervous. Completely natural to be this way, I guess. I will be fine once I get this show on the road. I just do not like saying goodbyes. I have had a long visit home but these last few days have flown by. I have felt good being here and enjoyed the comforts. I needed it. Being away teaches you a lot about yourself and I don't feel that I have ever taken anyone for granted but going away and coming back solidifies that sentiment. Never take people for granted. To my family, Mom especially, you know how much I love you and I appreciate all that you do for me. And to all of those who follow this journey with me, thank you so much. I hope you know that I appreciate it.
