home

later

while my daddy fixes the sneaker that is spankin’ new, but was brought home a bit beat up already, i sit here just because i always write right before i go anywhere.  two pieces of luggage sit in the hall filled to the brim with fleece sleeping bags that roll up real tiny (but aren’t great for camping in september), shoes, granola bars, shirts, pants, and peanut butter.  i’ve got my passport and money and i think i’m ready to go.  well, as ready as i ever will be.

i was thinking about my trip today.  thinking about how excited i am to be going (and how sick you are of hearing about it), thinking how long three weeks sounds right now, thinking of how three weeks flew by last year, and thinking about how much has changed in the past year.  i feel so different and i know i’m in a different place.

i leave in about nine hours.  don’t worry, you can’t get rid of me that easily.  i’m sure, like last year, i’ll manage to find a computer and some free time to let you know what’s going on over in Spain.  how cool.

good night and see you around in a few weeks.

  1. I’m already homesick for you all.

    Actually, I’m homesick for pretty much everyone, seeing as how I can’t even visit the people who live right down the road. 🙁

  2. oh good, you remembered your own peanut butter this time. after all, liz and i won’t be there to share with you. 🙂

    sorry we never ended up getting together. when you get back, i guess. i’ll want to hear everything about it anyway. and if you have the chance, how about you update LOTS. exactly what you are doing, and where you’re staying, and what spyker is driving the van and if peter still works in the cafe and how pretty stephie gonzalis (sp?) is getting (if you see her) and if you actually see a bull-fight this time, and whether or not you guys beat the gibralter crowd in the slap-clapping and all about the new places you go.

    i know. it will be so different. for one thing, you won’t have wesley there to watch spiderman and it’s sequel in spanish, or “smeagol” to creep up behind you in the dark, or that giggly girl to keep quiet after “lights out”, or your mom and liz to make superb meals and kara and i to stay up late and take crazy pictures with, and im sure you won’t be watching Princess Diaries 2, either.

    oh my goodness. tonight josh said that he was depressed after watching you all take off this morning. to be honest, i hadn’t really thought about it. until now.

    and now, i agree with him.

    and of course, i’m jealous because you’ll see Him do so many more amazing things. i’ll be praying for you guys.

    okay. sorry to write a book on here. i wasn’t intending to; i just started remembering. see you in three weeks.

    p.s. oh, if you happen to find another shell smaller than mine, make sure you save it to show me. 🙂
