I put new contacts in today, as I do at the beginning of every month. And as I did, I thought, "These are the last contacts I will wear in Qatar." And then I giggled a little.
In the past few weeks, we've gone from "We're leaving next month!" to "We're leaving in a month!" to "We're leaving this month!" I was worried productivity would slow down, but it's been almost the opposite. Everyone is cheerful, energetic, and getting along great, which is surprising considering how hard we've worked in such close quarters for so long. I'm thrilled with my team, and they continue to exceed expectations.
These last three weeks are gonna be a breeze.
