Oh goodness. Well these past few days have been pretty bad.

My host family's son has been studying abroad in Canada this year, and a few days ago my host parents received an email from Rotary Canada saying that he would be returning home within a few days. So they explained to me that his return home meant that I would have to switch families. They said that they could let me stay in their house until he came home, and then I would have to move to a temporary host family until Rotary could find me a new permanent one. But yesterday morning they woke me up, gave me my bags, and told me that their son would actually be arriving the following day and that I needed to pack my bags and leave before 8 o'clock that night. Without exceptions.

So I packed up my entire life there within two hours and I'm currently staying in another host family a half hour away from Cobena. I absolutely ADORE my temporary host mom. She's seriously the best. I was a little upset yesterday, as you can imagine, so she made me my favorite foods and took me out shopping. I wish I could have been a part of her family from the beginning.

Needless to say I'm a little stressed out. Everything changed so quickly. I just hope that everything turns out all right in the end.
