Well, I'm not technically all packed, but I am getting there. Tomorrow G and I are off to Aruba. Believe it or not, it's a work trip for me. Every year my company hosts a conference someplace tropical. So I will have to work, but I'll have some free time too. G has already made dinner reservations a few nights and he is going to use his birthday money to get us a couple's massage at the hotel's spa. We're going to have it on Thursday after my work responsibilities end. What a treat!
How many knitting projects do I need? I was thinking of just bringing two socks but leaving my sweater. The sweater would take up more room and it might be too hot to work. On the other hand, the five hour flight would give me plenty of time to work on it.
Last night I also stocked up on magazines for the trip. It's time to catch up on fashion mag reading.
I can't wait to be kniting on the beach!
Then when I return, I'll be cheering for the Bears in the Super Bowl! Go Chicago! Last night my mom asked me if I remembered where we were the last time the Bears were in the Super Bowl. Somehow I remembered that we were at a pig farm in Iowa. We lived in Dyersville, Iowa when I was a kid and some of my dad's patients had a pig farm and had us over for the game. Somehow that stuck in my memory. I guess it WAS the only time I watched the super bowl on a pig farm.
"See" ya in a week!
