and we're off ...

to the OBX that is. Tomorrow morning actually, but the fact that I'm packed and it's 1am and I'm reading blogs is a miracle in itself. The attempt to sublet our place seems to be a bust, which I'm partially glad for as it means less cleanup before we go. However it leaves lots of things in question as to finances, but not much I can do at this point other than have some more faith. Looking forward to the time away, word has it the beach is sweatshirt weather this time of year! Hoping that's really true ... douglas will be wet and cold the entire time, and in heaven. I have a few reservations about a full week with my inlaws, tho I love them to death. A week with just about anyone can be too much! 18 of us in one house ... we shall see.

We're taking Amtrak and it's an easy day trip, which the boys love. I'll be back in a week, and hope y'all have a smashing new years!
