Just a little over a week away.....

Sunday, December 11, 2011

Wow I can't believe that in just over a week we will be on our way to Haiti! Are we ready for it, no definitely not! I am sure we will be though by the time it comes. We have nearly all of our shots and medications taken. I wanted to lose more weight than I did, but stress and Christmas goodies have interfered with that- well actually my will power. So I go feeling self-conscious about my weight. The language there is creole and not many people speak english so that will be a new experience. I know that I will feel self-conscious about that but I hope that by knowing it I can fight the feelings off.

This is just going to be such a life changing experience. It is sort of weird to think that the person I am now will in a sense not be the person I am when I come back. Everyone says to be prepared to be changed, that these experiences really give you a new perspective on life. I know that essentially I will remain the same, but I just wonder what it will do. I know, way too deep, and really not important in the grand scheme of things.

I have never traveled like this before so I have been trying to ask people I know that have traveled- what to pack, how to pack etc. I am so glad I will have my husband with me. My parents are worried sick about us going, they have even refused to talk about it. That is unfortunate. I am starting to feel sad about missing Christmas and I didn't think that I would. I am sure that we will be too busy when we are there but right now I feel sad thinking about it.

Anyway, those are the thoughts right now running around in my head. Apparently they have high speed at the school now so I am thinking about trying to do a blog while we are there. If I do, and anyone is interested, just ask and I will let you know about it.

Well that is it for now. emoticon

    You should absolutely blog while you are there if you have the time and opportunity!! You should feel really proud of the effort and sacrifices you are making to do this. Forget about what your weight is or what you feel like you look like or don't look like; you are doing something that very few people have the courage or energy to do.

    I think you are absolutely right about thinking about how it will change you. This is a very exciting time for you :)

    Can't wait to hear about it!!

    Yes, I'd like you to blog! That would be very interesting.

    Don't worry about your weight...no one will care!
