I am just 3 hours away from starting my travels and I thought I would blog to keep my mind off of the fact that my entire body is shaking. I spent the morning with Marissa and Paul at their school. Marissa was very sad. Her tears came down far before i left. She had her friends around her consoling her and saying things like, "you can borrow my mom for two months" But her and I just held each other. I breathed in deeply getting the last whiff of her amazing smell. I kissed her on her head and her cheeks and just let her rest in my lap. It felt good and sad all at the same time.
I walked Paul to his class and I could tell that he was sad but he seemed more confused as to how he was supposed to handle my absence. I gave him lots of kisses all over and he waved good bye as I exited his classroom. Told both of them that I loved them and then went home to begin my loneliness.
This is supposed to be an amazing trip for me and somehow i am feeling really sad. I really have no idea what is in store for me. But we shall see. I should go now I need to get ready for the biggest adventure of my life!!
Happy Birthday to KATIE and JANE!! Two amazing friends!!!!
