I will (hopefully) have been on the road for a little over four hours.
Randall and I are going to the Annual Conference in Surrey.
Well, I should say Randall is going to the conference. I'm just going along for the ride. That's not to say I won't be at any of the meetings, but my primary motivation is our daughter and son-in-law who live just across the river in New Westminster.
It will be an interesting weekend; besides the 12-13 hour drive each way, The Husband and I have vastly different ideas about things like "breakfast while travelling" and "work vs relaxation while attending work related functions". But, as long as I keep in mind that he's working, and as long as I don't expect him to do too much relaxing with me, and as long as I don't make him spend $20 a day on breakfast... we'll get along just fine.
The other thing is, that my birthday is on Friday... and as we'll be in the Surrey area... and since some of you live around there or will be in town for the same conference... well- I'm thinking of holding court at the Hotel coffee shop or something (unless someone can suggest a nice pub or cafe), and if you're around and available, why don't you shoot me an email and I'll tell you where we're meeting. I'd love to meet you there. And if your birthday is coming up or has just passed, why, we can buy each other a... coffee or coke... and maybe splurge on a piece of cheesecake.
Meanwhile, I think the first load of laundry is done, and I have a serious list to make and then work through. I have less than 44 hours to be all ready...
And sometimes time flies faster when you're trying to get ready to have fun...
(bet you can't say that five times really fast! ...sometimes time flies faster... sometimes time flies faster... sometimes time flies faster... sometimes time flies faster......)
