Tying up loose ends.

Today was my last full day in Korea. I spent it the way I've spent most of this past week: packing, cleaning, and running pre-departure errands. Tuesday involved multiple trips to the vet for health checks and travel papers. Wednesday was post office day - lugging four boxes of crap that wouldn't fit into my suitcases down to the nearest PO. Wednesday was mostly cleaning and packing, although I also lugged ₩60,000 worth of ₩100 coins to the bank to cash them in. Today I took my extra pet carrier (stuffed with all the excess pet things I won't be bringing with me) across town to donate to Animal Rescue Korea. Then I went and stocked up on birth control as the US seems to be nonsensically spiraling down the pill-is-evil rabbit hole. Bags are packed, and the apartment is clean. And now I'm just kicking my heels. 15 hours til I leave my moldy shithole of an apartment for good.

Tomorrow, two of my former coworkers will be helping me to cart two ginormous suitcases, a dog, a cat, and a carry-on bag off to the airport. Assuming all goes according to plan, I should be home about 25 hours later. It's going to be a long day. The critters are resting up:
