It is hard to believe that an entire month has passed, and that tomorrow I will return home to Ohio. However I will only be gone for a month. In June I will return here to the same apartment. During my time in Ohio I will be very busy, attempting to accomplish two months of gardening and yard work in just one.
Since I am allowed to keep my clothes here at the apartment, I do not have much packing to do. Well, actually that is not true. Knowing that I would have a nearly empty suitcase, I went wild buying gifts and souvenirs. Yesterday Alejandro took me to Office Depot to buy some bubble wrap, and I just finished wrapping the more fragile items. Fortunately nothing weighs that much, and I will not have to worry about going over the luggage weight limit. Perhaps it is because of the yard work that is facing me, or perhaps I am truly becoming an ex-pat in my attitude, but, other than seeing my friends, I am not looking forward to returning home.
