Countdown - 11/10

No, my countdown is not until November 10! It is 11 nights until I leave for Tokyo, and 10 nights until I leave home for Nashville. Even though I just wrote that, and I know in my head it's true, I still don't believe this is really happening. This needs to start feeling real to me very soon so I can do everything I need to do! One of the huge things I need to be doing right now is packing all my work clothes that I'm no longer using. I also need to find some fun things that represent the good ol' U.S. of A. and/or Mississippi. Suggestions??

My sister and nephew are also in for a visit, which has been lovely! By the time I finish my JET contract, my nephew will be about to start kindergarten! Auggh! I really am glad to have a chance to spend some time with them before I head out.

I also can't believe Amy is getting married in 3.5 days!! I have some jewelry I need to finish making before the big day - bet you didn't know I could do that, did you? Well, honestly, neither did I. It's been fun, though!

Well, this is where things pretty much are at 11/10 nights out! I hope I will be able to get my act together soon!

Well, I think teaching them the rousing game of Dutch Blitz is a good idea! Also Uno. Then, of course, you can share your newfound jewelry-making skills with your students.
