This will be my last post for awhile.
Tomorrow morning I'll be getting up around 3:30 am so that I can stumble downstairs and have some coffee while prying my eyes open with some heavy machinery.
A friend is picking me up around 5:30 to go to the airport, and a big silver bird is going to carry me out to the East coast for ten days of intense discernment.
Yes, I'm nervous. That hit me tonight when most of my prep was done.
My dog is safely nestled in at another friend's house, and to my eyes she looked pretty happy with her new hobby of herding children around the kitchen and living room. I just hope she behaves herself! And I also hope the baby doesn't find it necessary to share all of his crackers with her. As it is she's apparently a huge fan of said baby, evidenced by her maternal and constant washing of his face. Which he didn't seem to mind too much!
So, all is well. I'll triple-check the suitcase tomorrow in hopes I have what I need but not more than I need (because lugging junk around is just no fun!).
Have a wonderful couple of weeks everyone! Thanks for your prayers, please keep praying for me, and I will remember your own intentions as well!
