On the Road
I searched for Kelly for years until I finally found her about a year ago on Facebook. Now, we talk on the phone regularly and keep up with each other's lives.
Kelly was by far the coolest chick in middle school AND high school. And now, once again, I have the benefit of her wonderful outlook, enthusiasm and sense of adventure.
I am so excited to see her tomorrow!
I tried to plan for every contingency as I get ready to leave town, but I am the parent of a teen, the ultimate variable. I hope it will be possible to have peace of mind while I am away.
The plane leaves very, very early on Monday morning, and I will travel around the clock and around the planet, by many modes of transportation -- plane, train and automobile -- until finally reaching my destination Tuesday afternoon.
