Bon Voyage!

It is 5:23 a.m. I have been awake since Evan got up this morning at 4:00 a.m. I just layed there, listening to him finish up any last minute packing, getting dressed, and finally moving his suitcase to the door. I was just dreading that moment when he would come "wake me up" to say goodbye, but it finally came. I know it must sound like I'm overreacting or that I'm bordering somewhat on pathetic, but I cried again as we said our goodbyes this morning. I guess I just never really thought about how much time I spend with Evan and how much I build my home life around him until this trip came up. It's just going to be a very....weird two weeks.

Today will be mostly a travelling day for him. Right now, he is driving to northern Illinois where he will be leaving his car at the home of the other Milwaukee Valve guy that is going to China with him. Their flight (United 0835) out of Chicago is at 10:35 a.m. and they should land in Shanghai 14 hours later! So, it will already be Saturday by the time Evan steps off that plane. Poor guy! He has promised to try to blog about what's going on for him over there during the next two weeks, so stay tuned for his reports from China. As for me, I'll be posting about what I'm up to as well, just to keep my sanity!
