One of my study participants baked me a cake today. She told me she was going to do it last week, but in my insane busy-ness, I completely forgot. She brought me a white chocolate cake in the shape of Hello Kitty, covered with pink icing and white star sprinkles. She wrapped it carefully as she knew I'd have to transport it all the way to my apartment, and she made me promise to share it with my kids. When she handed it to me, I immediately started crying. She thought it was sweet.
T-minus 9 days and at least a million sad & happy tears until we leave Germany. I have a few days in review to do before we leave though, so stay tuned.
