Sitting in the original "Cheers".

I’ve been here for over a week now. It’s been pretty great so far, except I got sick tonight. It must be the weather in Boston, because several others in our group have already been sick with a sore throat and I thought I’d managed to dodge it, but… Anyway, I’m spending most of my time in my youth hostel bed right now, working on homework, trying to finish it all before the trip is done. That’s right, homework. May I remind you this is a trip designated by my university and therefore, does not really feel or act like a vacation.
Although, we did get to go whale watching yesterday and that was pretty cool. Unlike the experience George and I had on our honeymoon, this time it was humpback whales instead of killer whales. And they are large. Comparatively.
Just thought I’d give you all a minor update. George comes back from Ukraine on Monday, and even though I don’t get back from Boston until Friday, I am looking forward to getting to talk to him on the phone–really, TALKING–for the first time in a month!
Never thought I’d say this, but I am looking forward to getting back to Tennessee. Not that I don’t really like Boston, as it is a big city and you all know how much I dig big cities! But I miss being at home with my husband.
Cheesy, I know. So sue me.
