Departing for Hawai'i
It's around 6 am and I haven't slept much. I can never really sleep the night before I leave for vacation. I can't seem to stop my brain from runnning through lists of things that I have or have not done. We have a long day of sitting in planes ahead of us - 14 hours from start, connection, to finish - so if I'm a little sleep deprived, I'm sure I'll make up for it en route.
I still need to wrap up a few things before I go, including sending some emails, writing this blog entry, finishing some work, and making sure the cats will have food and water. Thankfully our dog Chelsea is over at my grandparents' house while we are away. They feed her lots of treats so she is happy there.
So what can you expect from this travel blog in the near future? Hopefully, it will be updated at least every other day, if not every day. I will write entries everyday, but may not get to posting them each day. I also hope to include a "picture of the day" in each entry. I always take a lot of photos with my digital camera, so this shouldn't be a problem. The problem may be in picking one photo to post.
Before I move on to that list of things nagging me at the back of my mind, I wanted to mention that I had a really great send off from my friends yesterday. There were lots of well wishes from many of them, but I also met a few of them - you know who ya are - for happy hour after work. It was so much fun! I think we all decided that all birthdays and vacations warrant a happy hour be called by someone.
Now for those emails...
