New York, HERE I COME!!!!!!!!

It's official!!! I got my call yesterday (1 day late, stupid mail) and I am going to the "New York, New York South Mission (which includes BERMUDA oddly enough!!!), SPANISH speaking!!!! I leave to the MTC August 1, 2007.

Can you believe it?!?!?!?!?

I have never been so exciting for something in my entire life!!!!! I thought that if I didn't go out of the states I woud be really dissapointed, but I"M NOT!!!!! Technically I AM going out of the states to Bermuda, about 500 miles SouthEast of New York. Bermuda!! as in the song "Aruba, Jamaca..Ooh I wanna take ya, Bermuda, bahama," you get the idea.... We were going to take a trip to NYC this summer. That's a coincidence if I've ever seen one. I won't be that far away from Tony either . Craziness.

So I need to get winter clothes for the craxy eastern winters with 5 ft of snow, and shorts and sandals for Bermuda summers. Insane!!! I have about 2 1/2 months to prepare. Too long if you ask me....I guess I can brush up on some Spanish basics before I go and learn all about New York. I'll be leaving my job probably two or three weeks before Aug 1st to give me a break before I go. I still can't believe that I'll be learning Spanish!!! I'm so scared!!!!

I looked up the mission website and they had this cool mission logo. I'll be getting first hand pictures of the big apple!!!

Now I can finally start planning every little detail and getting everything thing I need. You guys have no idea how freaking excited I am!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When I saw New York New York on the paper I totally lost my breath. When I saw Spanish, I almost passed out, then Bermuda almost killled me. I still haven't gotten my wits back about me and haven't quite started breathing again. I'm in a state of awe.

I will post all the pictures from last night when I get home. I think I can even get some video!!!! Crazy!!! I'm going to New York & Bermuda!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Soon to be Sister Hodgson
