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.
