Tomorrow I start a three-day training for the new part-time/contract job. For once I won't complain about training, because no matter how boring it may be, I'm paid by the hour and can use the bucks. After that, I have one day of appointments and busy-ness, then Friday we leave for a brief road trip.
First we head to Vermont for our friend Ray's wedding, a Hawaiian luau in a northern Vermont backyard. In Vermont we visit Allan's grandmother and some other relatives he has reconnected with. (Although the man has very little family, we have managed to see them - and stay with them - in three different states, including Alaska, plus one province.)
From Vermont we'll drive slightly south into western Massachusetts, to spend some time with nephew D before he moves back to New Mexico.
A five-day Allan-and-Laura road trip is always fun, especially since I feel like I haven't left my house except for job interviews and the gym in months!
So that's the week ahead, and I know you'll understand if I don't blog much while it's in progress.*
* Although every time I say that I end up blogging daily, so we'll see.
