How I feel right now

Well, right now I’m in Macedonia, sitting on my sofa, with a sugar headache. But in a couple days I’ll be in the States (FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 22 MONTHS), maybe reading but more probably devoting myself to the lost art of drinking beers out of paper bags in parks while wearing (scandal) a tanktop and a skirt that does not touch my knees. Which is to say, posts here may be irregular. Undoubtedly I’ll come up with something after my first trip to a bookstore (oh my god oh my god oh my god) that will probably only be of interest to fellow Peace Corps Volunteers who haven’t been in a bookstore in nearly two years, and I’ll probably read something that seems worth writing about, and I’m going to try and have a short story post up every Sunday still because I continue to love short stories whatever the rest of the world thinks…but these next three and a half weeks, I’m calling my summer vacation.

So weird to think that 72 hours from now I’m not going to be in my little town in Macedonia, but in New York. OPA!

Enjoy your time back in the states, Ellen! I’m so excited for you.

Yay! I know how much you’ve been looking forward to this. I hope you have an absolutely fantastic trip. Drink lots of beer. Eat your favorite foods.

And p.s. I’m right there with you with short stories.

Safe travels! That first bookstore isn’t going to know what hit it. Nor will that first beer! ;)

Safe travels! If you’re in New York City and looking for either children’s books or teaching materials that might be useful in your next job, try Bank Street Books on Broadway (and something like 107th or 108th). I go every time I’m visiting my sister in Manhattan – and our kids are tweens and teenagers already!
