leavin' on a jet plane

Since my flight leaves Central Illinois Regional Airport at 6am, my intrepid mother and I have opted to pull an all-nighter rather than have to set alarms for 3:30am to make sure we get up and to the airport on time. We are enjoying late night cable television, including Daisy of Love, which is even more stupid (and awesome) than its predecessor, Rock of Love. Mom keeps trying to get me to put it on Home & Garden TV and I keep insisting that I am leaving the country today, mother, and I want to watch Disney Channel. I mean, really.

Anyway, my trip home has pretty much been awesome. I ate so many things and my suitcase includes like five kinds of trail mix. And five kinds of chocolate. And a space bag full of new clothes from Sam's Club!

Here's some stuff I did in America:

Went Pirate Adventure mini-golfing in Wisconsin!

Went to the Harry Potter exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry!

Plus the museum has sassy baby chicks! (Look at the big version! The chick in the middle is SO SASSY.)

Went to Pontiac Heritage Days and met fake Abraham Lincoln!

Had a Fourth of July party and played with sparklers!

And also a mini-high school reunion!

And also a mini-college reunion!


Anyway, I've had a good time being home but I suppose I am ready to go back to the DR. I am hopeful that in my new site I will maybe be able to do some of the stuff I joined Peace Corps to do. Plus, I miss my ridiculous Peace Corps friends.

But seriously, America is pretty sweet, you guys.
