Well, I'm getting set to head off on my trip. This is a pretty significant thing for me, I haven't traveled abroad in more than a decade, and I've never left my kids for longer than a couple of nights. To get started on the right foot, the kids got a whole lot of hugs this morning while dropping them off at school.
I am now within an hour of going to the airport. Bags are packed and triple-checked.
I'll be on planes or in airports for nearly a full day. Will post updates only when interesting things happen. :)
