In twenty-four hours...

I'll be flying over the Atlantic, hopefully asleep (maybe with the aid of medication).  But right now, my apartment is a mess, with dinner still sitting on the counter.  The girls' clothes are strewn over the floor, I have a load of laundry yet unfolded, and I can't find my iPod to charge it.

And what have I done about it for the last few hours?  Nothing.  What have I been doing instead?  Reading a really good book.  Because by tomorrow evening, my things will be packed, we will be on the plane, and dinner won't matter any more.  Whether or not I kill myself to do it tonight.

And so, I'm taking the last few precious hours of alone time to relax and read a book.  Tomorrow will take care of itself, right?

Ashley, we hope everything goes well as you travel back home tomorrow! Thank you so much for the food - Mark and I couldn't BELIEVE how much there was in those boxes when we got home... especially with regard to all the varieties of cheese. Mark thinks he's in heaven. I guess we'll be trying some new recipes!

Tomorrow is going to be a busy day. Even more reason to sit and enjoy a good book tonight. Good luck with everything Ashley. You'll be in my prayers. I'm so happy your days as a single parent are coming to an end...for this go-around anyway. Love you guys. Be safe.

Ah, that's my style. Hope you finish your book in time to get things together! ...I'm sure you will.

Aaaaghh! You've got to get stuff done, you've got to..... wait, it's tomorrow and you're probably in the air by now.
Godspeed and I hope they get the seats together/seats apart thing figured out, or that some business guy enjoys keeping 2- and 4-year-old kids entertained for a lloooonnnngg time.

As President Hinckley was fond of saying, it will all work out. :-)

Definitely take that time. Is it a library book? *grin*
