I'm out of practice...I'll get back into it.

Some kind of clever, witty introduction to us leaving soon again for Ecuador. 

Monday.  2:35am.  Taca (not as comfortable as American Airlines, and not as much in-flight entertainment...but pretty good food included in the ticket price).  We'll arrive in Guayaquil (pronounced "why-a-keel"...have I ever mentioned that?  Sorry.) at 3:00 in the afternoon.  And then we'll get to work on accomplishing our goals for this trip.  I mean, not RIGHT then...we'll probably take a nap first.  And clean up our apartment...put all the furniture back in its place, take the plastic off everything...get some groceries...you know.  And THEN get started.

What I will miss most while I am there: 

1.  You
2.  The smoothies my mom makes for me every morning
3.  My dog, Pooper
4.  Hour-long church services
5.  Air conditioning
6.  Easily-accessible Wireless
7.  My paycheck
8.  The concepts of time and punctuality
9.  Hot showers in which you don't have to worry about your water tank emptying...you can just let the water run
10.  Walmart
11.  Just kidding about the Walmart
12.  Haha

What I will not miss:

1.  Ismael (he's going with me)
2.  Hurry
3.  The Bakersfield summer heat (believe it or not, the evenings in Ecuador are cool and breezy this time of year)
4.  I can't really think of anything else that I won't miss...I mean, nothing I can say out loud, anyway.

What I look forward to about living in El Recreo:

1.  Whatever

I still have a lot of packing to do.  So, once my bags are all packed and all within the designated weight limits, I will feel like I look forward to something other than having my bags packed.  So...wish me luck.  Here I go.
