i'm leaving on a jet plane


cohen and i are off to prince george in the morning, at 6:30 to be exact. i am only slightly concerned about cohen being yanked from his bed, stuffed into clothes and hurried only to wait at such an early hour. i am hoping that lots of grandma love and perhaps a baby mum mum and a fun toy will be enough to keep his disposition pleasant. the flight is less than an hour which really is like taking the bus out to ubc, so it should be a piece of cake.

we are going to celebrate my mom's sixtieth birthday. there are many festivities planned including a nice dinner and a trip to the spa on tuesday, her actual birthday. it is going to be nice to get out of the city even if it is quite cold and slushy. we are going to go to the pool again which is a little crazy since i swore i would take him regularly after going during our last visit and yet have not gone once. there just isn't any good pools for kids in the city.

the reason i am writing this seemingly pointless post though is to let you know that i have made the decision to not take my computer. this is a big deal for me. i haven't really gone anywhere without it for the last two years, which is exactly why i am going without this time. instead i am going to try and take lots of pictures and read and just relax, maybe watch some movies. i, like many of you i imagine, waste far too much time on this thing so i will consider this my week vacation from the internet (although who are we kidding, i will still check my email).

wish me luck with the withdrawal. see you in a week.
