"Leaving on a Jet Plane"

I'm traveling to Brazil tonight and will be back on Sunday morning. The trip had already been planned before the latest events with my parents took place, but I guess it was good timing. It's right in between my parents' birthdays too, so I can give them hugs and gifts in person. Of course all I wanted right now was to stay home close to my husband and sons, but I have to go, and on Sunday night K leave for London (he's still traveling after all) so we'll be away from each other for two weeks :( right after these life-shaking events...

That's why I was and am in a hurry right now. I have to leave for D.C. (I fly from Dulles) in a few minutes, I'm just waiting for Kelvin to get back from school so I can hug him and say good-bye. Good thing he'll be entertained by Super Why (but that's another story -- I'll blog about PBS Kids programming soon ;).

I guess several people still may not have read the latest news from Casa in Translation, so please check it out -- it's unbelievable. And wish me a good trip. I'll blog tomorrow and Saturday as planned :) They just may be very short posts.
