Packing this evening, going through my traditional list-making before a trip (toothbrush? deodorant?). We’re leaving Saturday morning for St. Louis, to visit Lissa’s uncle, Bill.
It’ll be the second time we’ve made the drive out there, and I’m really looking forward to the trip. Last time was 10 years ago, during the early stages of the great flood of ’93. It’ll be great to see Bill. He’s Lissa’s best connection to her family past. He reminds her so much of her mother.
It’ll also be good to have a week together with Nora and Lissa, without the usual distractions. No IM. No GNOME. No work. No blogs.
And now we have a digital camera. Travelogue on our return!
