No blog updates for a week? Well, it's been busy, busy, busy!
OK, not that busy. There was a lot of prep to be done at work during the week but other than that it was sufficiently cold that Southern Man spent his evenings holed up in The Trailer drinking hot cocoa and watching movies, and much of Saturday doing the same and wondering if Friday's flu shot had made him ill. Of course there was daily geocaching (but often just one a day to keep the streak alive) and Sunday was filled with church and parents and friends and then church again (singles leadership team meeting).
And it's official: airline tickets are in hand so Friday noon Southern Man heads east on a 1500-mile journey to deliver Teen Daughter The Elder's car to Maryland. Southern Man figures he can get there in forty-eight hours (by noon on Sunday) if he drives half the time. He plans to catnap at rest stops rather than stay in hotels and there will be much geocaching; this trip will add five new states to his list. And it's his first really long road trip alone and he's rather looking forward to it.
Until then it's the first week of classes, the first of which meets in a few minutes. Let the semester begin!
