|So busy! So sad! So frantic! Yet smiling & happy at the same time.|
Lena and I said our goodbyes to Nagisa yesterday. She was such a great kid and I loved having her live with me. She left us with tears and great memories ................. as well as a small box of Japanese goodies and an extremely messy & dirty room! It took 2.5 hr to clean and we hauled out 2 large green garbage bags of junk. OMG! Can you say "Oink"?
Lena was a huge help; her room does not look like that! Tonight is our last night together, and it's going to be killer saying goodbye to her. She's like my own! Tonight, she's taking me out to supper. Then it will be a whirlwind of cleaning her small room (piece of cake) plus the rest of the house. Gotta make sure the new students come to a clean new home.
Tomorrow we set off to the airport in what could be a nightmare ride. There's the possibility of freezing rain in the morning which will not just mean awful driving but most probably a mix-up of flight delays. Thankfully, if the weather is bad, I can drive with someone else (and have to run on their much later schedule.) Still, I'll bring my book, drink Starbucks and find a comfy place to hide. It'll be okay.
