Well, folks, it’s just after 5 AM on Sunday morning (Singapore time), and I’m on a plane, heading for the land of turkeys and cranberry sauce and all other Thanksgiving-type shenanigans. I am both ridiculously excited (Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, and my family knows how to celebrate), and a bit anxious (my To Do list is a mile long…this will be a working holiday). I properly prepared for my travels and return to the USA by fueling up with pancakes on Saturday morning:
I did some spin training and errands on Saturday afternoon, then came home to attend to my much-procrastinated packing. As excited as I am to visit New Jersey, I was completely uninspired to pack. This is ridiculous, as I am no stranger to travel, and packing is usually a non-issue. Finally, I set my trusty lab timer, and gave myself 4 x 15 minutes to pack:
Dear Future Self: Please remember how painless that was, and stop your whining next time you have to pack. And with that, I’m off. Please excuse the delayed Commenting/responding over the past (and next) day while I’m traveling. See you all from Eastern Standard Time!
And if this brief post didn’t fulfill your need for bloggy goodness today, head on over to Spohie’s blog, Life’s Philosophie, where she and I are co-posting in her Marine Corp Marathon: Reflections post! [How do I co-post on a race I didn’t run? Bwahahaha…you’ll just have to head over and see for yourself! 🙂 ]
In lieu of commenting today, head over Sophie’s way and say hi!!
