Countup - last post from Mississippi and possibly the U.S.

Here we are - the last post from Mississippi and probably from the United States! The bags have been packed, goodbyes have been said, the tears have been shed (I'm ready to be finished with tears), and everyone who needs to be hugged (and can be hugged) has been hugged. One funny thing about hugging lots of people is that after a while, you don't smell like yourself anymore.

Well, I will be leaving for the airport tomorrow morning at 4:30 with the family. More tears will probably be shed, although we may be too tired to cry! I need to get to sleep ASAP so I can be somewhat well rested for the trip tomorrow. At least I can try to take a nap on the plane. Then, Saturday morning, it's off to Tokyo (this is still a bit surreal). I'm not sure when I will next have an internet connection, but when I do, I will try to post something. Until then, sayonara!
