We're off!

Well, I guess we're going to disappear for a couple of days. Steve likes to throw a big Memorial Day bash every year, and we've been invited. We were thinking about staying home this year, due in large part to the fact that we are a four-hour drive away, and if we took the train, it would be holiday fares, and we'd have to be away from home for a total of three days at least and being away from home on Sunday means more packing because we have to take church clothes and church shoes and and and...

Then it turned out our bishop wanted the choir to sing on Sunday, and our organist is out of town, so we kind of need to be in church tomorrow, and not away in Fresno. So we came up with a compromise. Mom is driving down here right now to visit us, and we will all go to our ward tomorrow, then we will drive up to Fresno and only have to spend two days away from home. I'm not sure I like this plan a whole lot better, mostly because we just took time off for Disneyland and we finally got the books we've been waiting for, so we're a little eager to get to work. But on the bright side, we'll get to see our sisters and nephews, so I guess it balances out.

And now we still have a lot of stuff we want to do before Mom gets here, so off we go!

Today I'm thankful for finally getting the books we've been waiting for, having time to watch all the ongoing anime we've gotten ourselves into (except for Space Brothers, but that one...), not having to pack church clothes, getting to visit family, and 0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-the lovely chain of zeroes Page types for me just now.
