4 months and counting!
So our household is down one rebecca, as becky sadly has left us until the end of august!! I don't spite her the time at home, as this is her first trip back in the 11 months she's been here! But those of us who are left behind are sad! Well mostly me, because i'll be leaving quito soon after she comes back and our reign of rebeccas will be ended! cesar is selling our apartment, so becky and rebecca are moving just a bit up the street to an identical (but with a balcony and snazzy view of the city!) apartment in the same complex. Both of those crazy gals have signed on to jobs that will keep them in quito until next spring/summer! Rebecca has a big project to keep her busy at Faro, and Becky got a sweet job as a classroom teacher at Einstein (the jewish high school)! Congratulations by the way! Actually 4 months from today I will be getting on the same flight as becky back to chicago for good!!! which is exciting in some ways, but i hate the idea of leaving these girls and our new kitty, and wish that it was at all pratical in some way to come back and visit. Of course everyone says "just stay", which i'm increasingly tempted to do. Don't worry, i won't actually pull a katie, but i am tempted. And as it turns out, Natalia, who I had given up for dead (but was actually studying for the bar on a beach in mexico) is coming to viist after all!!! which is exciting but sadly means i'll be leaving my job and everything sooner than i thought. well i won't speak too soon, god knows what i'm even doing with my life! hmm, well at this exact moment i'm going to teach a class because my student walked in. maybe he will have some answers for me.
