Just arrived in Portland, ME. Looking forward to what the next five months have to bring…

Ordered a pizza from a local place… http://www.portlandpie.com… Really good!

Getting settled into the Howard Johnson in South Portland tonight. Need to recoup from a somewhat stressful air trip. This was the first time taking Brisbee on the plane, needless to say, a little nerve rattling. She did really well though, only cried when we had to wait FOREVER to get up in the air, and when I left to pee. =)

I’m excited and nervous about this trip. Looking forward to the opportunities that await me, and interested to see what I will learn about myself. Ready to get into actually working, and take my mind off not knowing anyone yet. I think that is probably the hardest part of this trip, but I also feel like it is something I need to do, to see what I can learn about myself.

Missing everyone at home of course, and ready to get settled in and settle down. I hate living out of suitcases! I am so excited to see what the apartment in Bar Harbor looks like. I’ll be posting photos so that everyone gets to experience the new place. Wish me luck at WalMart tomorrow, it has been awhile since I went shopping for new home supplies.

Looking forward to breakfast tomorrow with Billy (my dad’s brother), it will be nice to see a friendly face, and he even offered to brave WalMart with me!

Work starts on Monday with meetings with CBP, Harbor Master, Pilots, and anyone else around that I can get in touch with. The first ship in is Holland America’s Maasdam on Thursday May 14th.

Feel free to leave me comments, I would love to hear what is going on in your life while I am in the not so warm Maine. And, of course, I would love to see a familiar face. Let me know if you want to visit, I would love the company!
