Una Semana Mas....

Ok. So this is reality now. I am leaving a week from today for Arlington, VA and then on to Peru!!!  ADM (aye dios mio). It is actually happening. Maybe I'm just fully realizing it now because I have this daunting list of things to accomplish, or because I've already had the "Adios Emily Party" and have said goodbye already to a lot of people, have stopped working at both City Corps and even Snapper Jack's Taco Shack.  For whatever reason I have a heightened sense of appreciation for what is in front of me right now. I'm very excited for training, have been reading other blogs from current volunteers, and measured some suitcases. :) Creo que estoy lista... vamos a ver!
