Wish I was there . .
My passport is ready and I can be packed in minutes.

07 December 2008

The countdown begins . . .

Five days until I head out to snow and cold! The list of things to do before boarding the plane is long and my chemistry final is Wednesday, but very early on Friday we take off to Colorado for a legal seminar. After the seminar, we fly to Boston for a weekend of Christmas in the city with the kids, and then it is just a three hour drive up to Maine and my family for Christmas. I can't wait for some real winter weather!

Hubby has attended this seminar for the past five years. I have always had to work and for a number of years the kids were too little to enjoy the benefits of a seminar in the mountains. Last year, Hubby took his Mom and the kids while I worked my last week as a teacher. They skied, skated, and drank cocoa, while I graded mid-terms. But this year, I will be with them! This is my first visit to Colorado and the thought of mountains and snow permeates my brain when I am suppose to be memorizing chemical equation. I fear that on Wednesday, I will doodle pictures of mountains and skies instead of converting moles to grams!

Look for some very non-Florida like photos in the near future!

So fun! I love Boston. And you may also get a white Christmas. Not too many Floridians can say that!

Oh, I'm reading a book set in New England right now. I'd love to go there for a visit one day.

Actually, I reckon that would be one place in the US that I could live.

E.T. - I know you understand the excitement :) Just a few a more days of studying . . .

Claire - I too love Boston. I lived there for five years so it will be fun to show the kids around and see all the Holiday decorations. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for snow!

Ms. Mac - I would gladly volunteer to be your tour guide through New England as it is one of my favorite places :) Enjoy your book!
