We're heading out tomorrow for two weeks of travel. Tomorrow we're going to Burlington and staying two nights. Since there's a big snowstorm forecast for Sunday, we decided to head out Saturday to avoid getting stranded. Our flight is early Monday morning taking us through Chicago to our final destination, Seattle. All of these places are snowy at the moment, so travel may become an adventure. (Last night I booked a room for tomorrow night. Courtyard Marriot - lowest web price $129 but I bid $50 on Priceline and got it on the first try.) Mom rented a house for her and her husband and me and Serge and my brother. We'll stay there and celebrate Christmas at the aunt and uncle's. We're also celebrating my brother getting his PHD. After that, Serge and I are headed up to Vancouver (another snowy place) for three days. Then, we're flying down to Southern California for several days for more holiday festivities with the family. It makes me tired to read all of this.
Today I've got a last class, then laundry and packing and dinner tonight at MIL's where we will have a little early Christmas. I may or may not pop in here over the next two weeks (I will if I'm stuck in an airport) but I'm really looking forward to unplugging for a spell. I wish all of you and yours a splendid holiday season filled with love and companionship (and delicious fatty sugary concoctions) and a happy new year. See you on the flip side. Mwah!
