All set for Japan...

I just got a call from the Doc saying my echo cardiogram shows my heart looks good. She mentioned the technical term (can't really pronounce it and definitely can't spell it) of one spot that came back as "trivial" and said I would probably never have to worry about. Praise the Lord! Thank you for your prayers! I definitely over stressed myself throughout this whole ordeal. With one week of summer school down, three to go, and a large part of my classroom packed, I'm feeling much better about leaving in a month!
On another note, I watched the new reality series "I Survived a Japanese Game Show" this week. I was thinking about what it will be like to walk off the plane and realize I am in another country, and not just for a little vacation. The people on the show were cracking me up as they were talking about being on their couch watching tv one day and the next being in Japan! The comments that were made about the beds in Japan have me wondering. Will it really be like sleeping on a rock? haha this could be good. I hope I am able to use a remote controlled toilet too! Oh the good times that lie ahead.

Shipping woes...

Well, I am feeling much better about summer school now, which starts next Monday. I'm almost set for all four weeks, as far as prep work goes. Good thing something is going that well because deciding what to pack and what will be shipped over to Japan is getting to be a huge hassle. Apparently the US Postal Service finds pleasure in charging an arm and a leg to ship a box that would probably fit a pair of shoes! This will definitely limit what I "need" to have in Japan. :) On another note, please keep me in your prayers as I will be going to the doctor on Thursday to receive an echo cardiogram that will detect a possible heart murmur, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. The unknown can be a bit scary! And for some exciting news...I am going to see Wicked this week with the wonderful ladies of L2! YAY!

Last Day of School

Wow, another school year has come to a close. I am amazed when I think about how fast three years has gone by. So many emotions have hit today; sadness in saying goodbye, stress in thinking about all that needs to be done, excitement to be this much closer to the beginning of a new journey, nervousness about receiving a license to drive on the wrong side of the road (what are they thinking!), and peace in knowing I am in the hands of my heavenly father...And so I begin this new blog at the start of a new adventure!
