Well, for those of you who don't know, Grady got a job at Club Med for a year...he left this morning,
Blah, this sucks so much, but it's also good, it will be a good test for our relationship but it's just so hard to think of the positives right now. All I can think of is how hard it's going to be to sleep tonight, and it will probably be the same for the next couple of weeks =\
I saw him off at the airport this morning, he had to go into the customs lineup at 6am - I barely even got to say goodbye because I thought we were allowed to wait in line with him and go as far as the customs agent, but apparently I was wrong. It was really hard to see him go - it definitely took everything in me not to run after him and cling to him and not let go.
I bought him two calling cards - he called me twice from Dallas since he had a six hour layover. We talked for half an hour the first time and close to an hour the second - talking on the phone isn't a problem while he's in the States because rates are cheap, but once he gets to the Turks and Caicos it's another story. I looked up long distance rates from Telus, Sprint and Fido:
Telus: 8am - 8pm $2.43/min, 8pm-8am $1.70/min
Sprint: Worldwide Plus Plan $2.95/month + $0.48/minute
Fido: 50% off Long Distance Plan $5/month + $0.81/minute
Needless to say, holy fucking shit I'm going to be broke if Grady doesn't have access to webcam at Club Med! yikes! And I thought Momo's phone bills were bad...yikes =\ It's a good thing I'm going to be making a fair bit more money at Gaults than I was at OTW! eeps!
Speaking of which, I start at Gaults tomorrow morning at 8. I'm a little bit nervous since I haven't really known anything but OTW for the last three years, but I'm also excited because it's a new little adventure for me. I'm also contemplatin getting a job serving 3 or 4 nights a week at somewhere like Cactus just to make a bit of extra money. I don't know though, I'm going to give it a couple of weeks at Gaults and see how everything goes, I don't know if I would even have the energy to keep up with a second job because I also have softball all spring.
Anyhow, time to try to call Grady...he's in Miami for the night.
