Over the next few days, I have a good friend and former roommate (in Israel) visiting me: Cindy. She and I have had a lot of great experiences over the years, and I've been really looking forward to her visit. I haven't seen her since Christmas of 2005, when she flew to France to help me move into my apartment in Bordeaux. I spent the day cleaning, in anticipation of her visit, and I feel totally wiped out right now!
