Last Supper

We're getting ready to head over to Italiano Pizza for Phil's and my last meal in country. I've run into all sorts of obstacles all day. Maybe I'll tell you all about them someday. In the Resource Room right now is Jenny S. 82, Kaelin, Supy, and Joey. Phil is in the Peace Corps office's shower. I figured I'd use my remaining Internet time to post.

There is a big debate over whether our flight will leave at 11:59 p.m. or 12:59 a.m. tomorrow. Either way, the shipping agent wants the cat at the airport at 8:00 p.m.; the likelihood of us making it there by that time is dubious. And anyway, I don't want the cat stuck in a box for so long.

The training group was in town today. Danny helped me unload the car this morning. I got to say goodbye to Nancy and Jenny and Rob.

There's still a lot that's not packed at my house. And honestly, I don't think the rest of it will get packed. This list includes:
  • Bed sheets and pillowcases;
  • Dish soap and dish drainer;
  • Mop;
  • Etc.
We are going to Y-Not for pre-pizza drinks now. Next post from America.

I hope you're well.

Thanks for 2 years worth of fun and well-written posts. So many of your stories reminded me of experiences I had when I was a volunteer in Samoa. And many of your insights about your experience were realizations I didn't make until long after I was home. I hope your readjustment to life in the USA goes smoothly. Are you planning a law school blog?
