Well, so much for keeping a diary of my thoughts as I prepared for my trip to Costa Rica...I really haven't been able to focus on preparations for the trip since my mom's death a month ago. So much to do following her death, including 2 trips to Wisconsin and lots of paperwork.
I leave for Costa Rica early tomorrow morning. My suitcases are packed and I'm trying to spend the rest of the day relaxing. I know that I won't be able to sleep tonight--I'll be excited, anxious and worried that I won't wake up in time to get to the airport by 5:30am.
I am excited because I've never been to Costa Rica before and I love
exploring and learning about new places. I've heard it is beautiful
there and I can't wait to see it. I also can't wait to be someplace
I am a bit anxious because I still really don't know what I've gotten myself into. I do know that teaching is something I can do, but will not knowing the language be a barrier? It is a good thing that sewing/quilting is very visual!
I will definitely have lots to share when I get back--my camera is ready and I have my journal and several pens and pencils in my bag. Stay tuned...
