I LEAVE FOR ISRAEL TOMORROW. I can't believe it's finally here. I feel like I am somehow going to miss my plane, oversleep, or somehow forget that my flight is tomorrow.
(On a related note, thank chickens I didn't go to Hume this past weekend. I would be stuck there tonight! First time I can ever recall a group actually getting stuck up there. It would have been a dream come true as a kid! And a...dream come inconvenienced nowadays. And ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE this year.)
But today was a lovely day. I had breakfast in bed for the first time, and then drove off to get a mani/pedi.

And now we are sitting around, watching BBC America and, once again, relaxing. It is almost hard to remember that this is not normal, which I suppose is the ideal sort of vacation: when you completely forget about reality.
But this time tomorrow, I will be on my flight to Tel-Aviv from Newark, and then I'll be in a new country, on a new continent. I can't quite believe it is here. Maybe that is because I normally plan big trips like this for well over six months, whereas this time feels a little bit faster (only four months). But it is like those old Honda commercials imply: when opportunity comes knocking, then you come running. And I want to see Israel.
So off I go! Farewell, US. Next time I post will probably be on the other side of the country, and then: Israel!
