Am feeling rather overwhelmed at the moment - getting ready for this trip is difficult - probably made more so by fact that I'm flying and so have to pack more "carefully". Have passport and marriage license set out in pile of stuff to go. Am still looking for envelope with Canadian checks in it - from our wedding that I need to cash. I can't remember where I set it down last time I looked at it. (I'm not the most organized person in the world - those who know me well would laugh rather hysterically at that statement I'm sure) I have yet to download the pictures off my camera so that I can go with a "clear" memory card. And the plan is to pack in such a way that I only have a carry-on bag and my purse! Again...for those who know how I travel that's a rather laughable statement - I'm known more for taking everything but the kitchen sink. I've been that way ever since I was a kid - somehow I have the feeling that if I'm traveling I need to take anything that is special to me in any way in case something happens and I can't get back to where-ever "home" is.

Tonight is Squirrel's black belt testing - from 6:00 - 7:00 pm. We are coming home for a few minutes after bus route - simply to give me a few minutes at home tonight. Squirrel has pointed out that that is a waste of gas. However today I feel it's necessary - not to mention that I'm washing his uniform and we will need to get it out of dryer so he can wear it.

This afternoon I'm heading into work early - both so that I can enjoy a walk with some of the other drivers - and so that I can go to the bus shop to discuss my afternoon load with my boss. I keep having extra kids in the afternoon and struggle with finding them places to sit. I have several students that don't do well in a "3 to a seat" situation yet that's exactly where I'm at.

Better go...haven't written about the beautiful reddish sunrise this morning and the deer I've seen recently. That will all have to wait.

You and Mary both off to see your family - I hope your trip is smooth, Edith. You will be fine once you are on your way, and the boys will survive very happily!

Did you take a photo of the sunset or the deer?? It sounds beautiful!

I hope Squirrel does well tonight.

This is the 1st year in ages that I haven't been 3 to a seat. I know how frustrating it can be to find a seating chart that works. I hope the boss can shift some for you.

I've put off getting my passport renewed so long now that I'll be pushing it to have it for April - thanks for the reminder. I'm sure your trip will work out well. I have a hard time just packing a carry-on too.

The girls and I are going to try and do the almost impossible - we are going to take - not - three - but- one suitcase between us. Like you, I usually take enough supplies to survive being stranded on a desert Island.

I hope your trip is a safe one and you have lots and lots of good times.
