So I finally figured out why this is so hard emotionally................... it was supposed to be the trip that my dad and I shared and that is not going to be the case.... at least not in the traditional sense.  Lots of blogging will help...........
oh oh...... just checked the forecast for Bangalore.... temps in the 70's and 80's...... umm that is not what I packed for...... better go through in a jacket......

Kolkata - 90's and rain.......................  geesh!
The day is finally here and my stomach feels like a billion butterflies all in one spot - nervous anticipation is what most people call it. I call it a yucky feeling that I wish would go away.I am struggling with the excitement and the feeling that I already miss everyone.Two weeks in the grand scheme of things is such a short time. In the short term - an eternity. But I am excited and I think that I will change my : big question" to something dealing with girls or special needs students. It is going to be a hot day in Charlotte ; they say somewhere close  to 106F. That is a scorcher! Ha! I will master days hotter than that , from what I am told. Nick and Delta will be going home today and getting ready to move and Nathan is having a good time in Boston. Steve will spend some time with my mother and that will be a good thing. Breakfast completed and now time for some espresso ..... last for a while?

Cosee's wee blog: Ok, I am ready to go. Not much to pack - changed into my Red Sox shirt so that I would be more dressed up . Soon it will be time to take up residence in the bookbag and sleep for a while. Catch you on the flip side.

It is Friday morning, way too early and I know it. Tomorrow will be a long day and it will be almost as if parts of the day don't exist. Today consists of finishing all the minor details that are not so minor and getting myself ready for the next two weeks. I am excited and nervous - what if I screw up, what if they don't like me, what if I am just too different? What if , as Steve says , I put ideas into these girls' heads and I start a movement? That is heavy , more likely a riot.  More after I finish registering with the US Embassy who apparently is very busy...... wonder if they are filling out their health insurance forms so they have no penalties?

a week to go and getting so nervous, too much to do, too many things to remember and not sure  what I want to take for a gift. My first choice sort of wimped out on me and hasn't even responded to emails. I am trying to find something dogwood related and apparently that is a problem as well...... off to try and figure this out.
