The exact amount of time before my flight is scheduled to depart from JFK. Take out 16 hours of sleep, 3 hours of drive time, 3 hours of packing, 2 hours of bathing and personal hygiene, 4 hours of cleaning up the house, 2 hours of training and exercise, 3 hours of last minute shopping, 12 hours of being at work, 2 hours to disassemble and pack the bicycle, and what's left? 1 hour for Murat to curl up on the floor in the fetal position, shaking uncontrollably in fear.
I will never have been so far away from Ebru and Reis, than when I'm in San Diego. Counting the days until we're reunited..
