Announcement: The cat has left the bag.

Just like that we decided we were going to tell our bosses. For some reason I thought I would know months ahead of time on the day I was going to break the news. But nope, reality was we decided the day before I broke the news.

I had that odd nervous feeling running through my body monday morning. Just anticipating what was going to happen. It took me a good 5 mins before I could press send on my email to the boss to arrange a meeting. I couldn’t understand why I was so nervous… all I was going to be doing is telling them I have plans to go see the world.

Now that I think about it… that odd feeling was the exact same feeling I had when I got into that beautiful hot red classic car on the day of my wedding. It was the car that was taking me to marry the love of my life which I was really excited for.  It was an amazing ceremony on a gorgeous sunny day followed by one heck of a reception! I don’t believe I was nervous that day… so it must of been excitement I was feeling.

Words that come out of my mouth are never practiced or pre-thought out. They just happen. Only once have I ever written down what I was going to say before I said it. My wedding vows. Which were created very last minute. It was 3 am the day before my wedding (or I guess that would morning of!) and I wrote them in bed. I always left my homework to the last minute as well. So of course that means I entered into that meeting with my boss not prepared at all.

As I was about to tell him I could feel butterflies in my tummy. The exact same ones you get when you line up for a roller coaster you have never been on. Which must mean I was feeling nervous and excited! Somehow the words came out but how they did I have no idea.

None the less, the meeting went good. My co-workers are all happy for me and it sure feels good to finally let the cat out of the bag. A weight is off my shoulders that I didn’t even know I had!

Now to find out how Scott’s meeting went….
