I just received word today that the pending trip to China is now scheduled — for 10 days from now! My friend Jane was informed this afternoon that her lovely new daughter (Madelyn) is now awaiting her arrival.
I’ll be leaving on September 20th to accompany this brand new Mom to pick up the new little Miss and we will all be returning on October 1st. This means that I’ll be in my office and working tomorrow and then next week (through Friday, September 17th). I’ll be out of the office (and completely out of touch) from 5:00 p.m. September 17th through 8 a.m. Monday October 4th.
I’ll be finishing up the projects I have currently open over the next week in preparation for the journey and will reply to any e-mails and phone calls when I return to the office.
I don’t plan to take my computer with me on the trip (can you believe it?!?!!) but I have my website set up now so I can blog about the trip from any computer, anywhere in the world. I plan to do that if the opportunity arises.
Now, I need to catch up on my sleep, repack all my stuff to see if I can take alot less, charge all my batteries and prepare for a “traveling lightly” journey with one of my oldest friends (we met when we were 12 or 13).
It will be so odd to NOT be working on the computer every day. So very odd. Perhaps I should buy a new pen and a fresh journal especially for this journey. I wonder if my longhand is still legible…
