And We’re Off

It’s been almost a year in the making, but today we’re finally headed off for our big safari. We’re meeting up with my family in Miami in just a couple of hours, and from there, it’s on to London for a couple of days, and then (finally!) on to Kenya. For better or for worse, everything is packed, the luggage has been weighed (and I’m secretly giddy that I have enough room left over to bring my laptop, even though we’ll have no internet at all in Africa), and we’re *really* ready to hit the road.
I haven’t spent this much time with my family……well, ever, and I’m looking forward to it. I don’t think it’s a big secret that I think my little sister is one of the coolest people I know, not to mention one of the most fun. Somehow, the kinds of memories we’ll be making are better shared with a lot of people. Kevin and I haven’t been on a vacation in nearly a year, and we both *really* need some time away. It will be a relief to get on the plane later today and leave everything behind for a couple of weeks.

Having said that, I’m a little bit afraid that I’ll suffer severe detox symptoms from lack of teh intrawebz. Unlike some, I am perfectly aware of how many times a day I twitter or log on to Facebook. I KNOW I have an addiction, and I’m totally okay with that. After all, the internet is how I stay connected with the people i love most, and who are the farthest away from me. Rest assured, however, that even though I (gulp) won’t be around these parts for the next couple of weeks (after Tuesday, anyway. I fully intend to be connected in London), I will absolutely be thinking about all of my friends and family. In case I haven’t said it enough, I love y’all (and “y’all” know who you are).

In the meantime, have a great couple of weeks, and I can’t wait to annoy the crap out of everybody with pictures and stories. Oh, and one more thing? If anything really good happens, shoot me an email, m’kay? Just in case. 😉

    You may not miss much on the news front. I am sure there will be plenty of Michael Jackson coverage:-) Did you remember to set the Tivo?!?!?
