The Final Countdown

It's 1:30am, and I'm about to go to bed. I think I should probably wake up around 8am to finish packing! Why does packing always take longer than you expect it to!? Oh yea, that's because I procrastinate.

Anyway, my room is a mess, I'm still updating my iTunes, my bags are open, half empty and unweighed (don't worry, everything's laid out and ready to be thrown in...I just don't want to be space-saving and lugging heavy bags to the scale at this hour!). But have no fear...I will get it all done!

I said goodbye to my sister tonight because she will be up at 4am for clinicals and won't see me before I leave--but I guess at least the hardest one is out of the way! I was doing just fine until she started crying. And after I composed myself and kept packing, she came back for one last hug. I'm the most sad about leaving because of her...she's my best friend, and when I come home in December, she will be days away from being a married woman.

I'll post once more before I leave for the airport! My flight to Brussels is at 5:15pm, and as of about an hour ago, there were still about 30 seats available! Thank you all for your prayers!

Ok, I think I'm going to bed! My last night's sleep in America.

P.S. I got wonderful news today--we officially have internet at the house in Liberia! Praise the Lord!
