Trying to tie up work projects

I thought I would be sooooo happy to be done with work...I am literally counting the days.

At the same time, I find that I'm really very attached to my various projects and responsibilities. The more I think about letting someone else take them over, the less I like the idea. Although I've done it before, its harder this time around. I think because I let myself get complacent, get attached.

I read a book this week that quoted some historical sources regarding military wives. It is amazing how much their letters match up with my contemporary emails. Finding a place to live, worrying about our husbands, in some ways it is still just like the 1800's. At the same time, I'm thankful for all of the advantages we have...

Isnt it interesting how somethings,despite the times changing, the technology of war, the improvements in the "infrastructure", so much of the emotion stays the same?

I have a book I cant for the life of me remember the title, its a collection of letters from ALL the wars. Some are just painful to read, many last letters written just in case, some letters from POW's and then smuggled out, and then just the average everyday letter from husband to wife. And I read those and hear my own voice in them.
