I leave for Saudi Arabia in 5 days.

Its been an incredibly long process, baby's have been made in less time.... but after 9 long months I got my flight information. I leave in 5 days! This does not give me much time to take care of business at home. I have been running around like a chicken with its head cut off packing my luggage, laundry, packing storage items, goodwill boxes, trying to sell things on craigslist last minute, trying to find a place to store items I am keeping, finding coverage for my shifts at work and writing my resignation letter, buying modest clothes for KSA, Saying goodbye to my friends, family, and my girlfriend (now ex-girlfriend obviously), I am not sure when I will see them again, when I am coming back to Portland, or if I even am.
     The reality of the entire situation is starting to sink in hard. This is going to be a huge change of lifestyle in every possible way imaginable. This blog, along with my life, should begin to get very entraining from this point forward. Wish me luck!
