these are the days

This is my first post in a good while.

I feel a little overwhelmed, a little sad, a little anxious, a little eager and kind of tired. Aaron left the Cape yesterday after five awesome days of adventure and exploring. We went around the entire cape, from Provincetown to Falmouth, and saw so many great things.

We ate lots of ice cream, played in the Atlantic Ocean, saw Up and Star Trek at a REAL drive-in theater and learned some of the ins and outs of Cape Cod life. But now, he's gone. It's shocking to think that that 5-day period was probably one of the longest we'll spend together before getting married in December. I bawled my eyes out a good portion of yesterday (right up until I started my first day of work at 4:30 p.m.) 

Work was good for the first day. Everyone on the desk was very nice and very helpful. Not what I was expecting, I guess... I worked 4:30 p.m. to midnight last night, and my new shift, which starts today, is from 6 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. I'll be working true late nights and I'm a little nervous about driving home so late in this unfamiliar area. 

I have a lot more to say, but it can wait. Basically, I miss Aaron, I miss my friends and family and I miss Nebraska. It is such a wonderful place. Not that the Cape isn't, but I think Nebraska feels like home. I wouldn't doubt that in a few years you can find the Nixes living there :)
