              About 24 hours before I board the plane to head to Argentina and I find myself amazingly calm and relaxed. My bag is packed ( a carry on only ) with USA items to trade and/share that will not be coming home with me. I actually have space left .... I mean the lid of the case closed  and there was no stress. I am watching the USA World Cup game knowing that I am headed into a wild and crazy world of soccer in South America and wondering what types of adventures all my various country soccer gear will bring. I am starting to think that the international side of travel is becoming almost second nature and easier because I know what to take and what to leave home. All the important documents are copied ( several times ) and placed in various locations in my luggage so I feel pretty comfortable with that as well.
            I have found the time to jot down a few things for Steve to remember since I have taken care of a bunch of others. It is our anniversary ( 38 years ) : where does the time fly and how is it possible because I am still feeling rather spry and chipper..... At least I am home today , first time in about 5 years and of course it is a workday for Steve and he has will be all good though.............. headed for my walk after the game and a few other things before getting some anniversary food together........ later gators!

The time for the iEARN International Conference and Youth Summit is getting closer and closer..... Nervous excitement is probably an understatement , but with it being World Cup time as well...... it will be a grand adventure and experience. Please , if you are following me, post and make comments or ask questions..... that is what makes a blog so interpersonal and fun!!! I will soon say Adios... but for now: not quite yet
