I had a longer post written here, but it entailed the long process and emotional roller coaster I rode in order to arrive at this "big plan". I'll save you from all details and keep them for my future grandchildren when they need a lesson about making big life-changing decisions.
LONG STORY SHORT: I AM GOING ON A MISSION!
I started my paperwork at the beginning of March, and will hopefully in a few weeks receive a big white envelope that includes not only a mission call but also the most suspenseful occasion you could imagine - except for maybe a Lakers' playoff game in overtime.
College grad? Check.
On to the next adventure!
