This is the last day of my week sans family. I'm ready for them to come home, and find I'm thinking about them almost constantly, which is a good sign that I'm missing them. :) They won't be home until really late, however, and I suspect the kids will be asleep, and plus, I'm going to a movie tonight with friends, so really I won't see them until tomorrow (except Anders, HE'LL get a welcome home tonight :).

Slept in but not too late. Now I have to do some cleaning, get showered and dressed. Then I'm working on my family web page. I have 2 people coming over between 2-3 to look through kid clothing discards, and I'm leaving at 6:15 for Malmö. We're going to see Under the Tuscan Sun, which I was looking forward to until I heard all the rave reviews for Love Actually, which I'm now considering trying to change my ticket to. It's probably too late though, ah well.

I feel very good about my week "off" and got a lot of stuff done, that would have taken me twice as long. I still have things on my to-do list, but that thing will never end, so it's okay. I also feel really good about the stuff I've done for MM this issue. In addition to an article and a poem of my own, I've gotten submissions in from several very talented people. This is going to be an outstanding issue.
