"To be awake is to be alive" H.D. Thoreau

We're dealing with the transition of our Peace Corps assignment being something vague and theoretical to concrete, with a real location and departure date. We found out last week for sure that we are going to Panama in May. The news came just in time for a few days of lovely upper mid-western weather here in Houghton, 0 degrees with a -20 windchill. Well, at least it is snowing.
So we have: 7 weeks of school, 3 weeks of moving/storing/driving east, then Panama. 10 weeks is not a long time. I can handle 10 weeks.
