It was a weird moment. The process had been so grueling (and the remaining approval process is tricky enough) that it was hard to feel excited or relieved or like it was even really over. We looked around the room at each other, wondering what we were supposed to do. Sleep? Go home? We guessed so. Huh.
So, off we went into the night. The principals of the two parties will meet for dinner next week, by which time we should have word back on the approvals. If we have to make any changes to finalize the approvals, then I will likely be back up here at the end of next week. But if not, then we’ll really be done. I’m crossing all my fingers.
My job for the rest of the day is to figure out how to get back to DC while picking up the pieces of my other work projects. I’ve got a couple of calls scheduled and several other tasks that need doing, but it looks like I’ll be able to catch an early afternoon train and be home in time for yoga class. Yay!
