Today it hit me that I need to start thinking about packing. Yes, I won't leave until next weekend but I am going to a foreign country and I need to take everything I can possibly think of that I'm going to need! I know everything is made in China anyway, but it's not the same. I have started making lists and I realized I am going to have to do a lot of shopping. Poor me! :)
I am getting more and more nervous as the days pass because it brings me that much closer to leaving. I am so excited about the trip but I have a pit in my stomach when I think about leaving my precious Sofia. Yes, I know she is nuts and sometimes I want to give her away to gypsies...but nonetheless, she is my baby and I love her dearly. I've never been away from home for so long either so I will have a lot of "firsts" on this trip. I told my roomie Michelle Arnold that if she hears me crying in my bed just to ignore me.
BUT I will get over it and absence makes the heart grow fonder right?
