One Week From Today....

I'm just a little excited. In exactly one week from today, I'll be boarding an aircraft headed for California! Yay! I'll be home for Christmas! Four of my friends are flying to Istanbul and I was feeling a bit sad about missing that adventure. Then, I thought of home and family and friends. I wouldn't trade Santa Maria for Istanbul. What am I looking forward to the most? Simple pleasures: walking on paved sidewalk without fearing speeding cars, Internet that works at home (I'm currently in my classroom), a heater that does not require a propane tank (that hasn't been filled in 4 days), and of course.... American laundry systems! Does this sound like I'm whining? Don't get me wrong, I love life here but I cannot wait for the comforts of home!
