Nearing the End, the End is Near

I've been a little blog lazy lately and I sincerely apologize. I've been doing things all week to wrap up my last days in Phnom Penh thinking, "Oh, no need to rush. I have a few days." Now it's Thursday. Eek!

So here's a little wrap up of how the wrap up is going:

• Finished my last U.C. Bulletin, bigger and better than ever. Look for it online here by the end of the week.

• My replacement was hired and I have 2 days to train her. Yay!

• Still haven't printed photos due to technical difficulties, but it's slated on the agenda for today.

• Bought some awesome multi-printed fabric on a whim a few weeks ago, and still plan on having a dress made out of it before I leave. I've taken a look at some JCrew styles to copy. Give me your vote: brown or white?

• Still sifting through my "take homes" and "leave behinds." One suitcase is already packed and one is half full. For all of you in Cambodia, I have a good-size grab bag going so let me know if you want to take a peek.

• Thinking a lot about what Mom and I are going to do. I just found out there's zorbing in Cambodia! What a silly and fun activity! This is a definite must. (See these photos from my first zorbing experience in New Zealand.)


My mind is boggled and it will take a miracle to do everything I need to in the next couple days. Until then, I leave you with this beautiful quote posted by naturally nina. It's the perfect reminder for this period of transition I'm about to enter.

1. i like the cut of the white dress the best.
2. I already stole Nina's quote and posted it on my FB profile before I even read your blog.
