My Own 13.1 -- Cancelled

Or at least postponed.

See, we were planning on leaving later this week for a long vacation back to MN, but we got news today that Jerry's grandfather passed away early this morning, and his funeral is scheduled for Wednesday. We'd like to be there for the funeral, and since we're driving, we decided to pack up and leave early tomorrow morning in the hopes that we'll be there by Tuesday.

Once we made the decision to go, this afternoon was a whirlwind of preparation (thankfully, Norah took a nearly 2 hour nap, which is unprecedented for her, and it allowed us to get a lot done around the house), but with just a few details to finish getting ready this evening, we are basically all set to hit the road early tomorrow in the AM.

So, I'll be getting up at 5 am tomorrow. Just not to run. Perhaps I will get the chance to get it done while we're on vacay (we'll be gone for nearly 3 weeks, and with lots of family time, I should have plenty of childcare), which may work out better anyway: It will be cooler there and maybe, just maybe, my Garmin will be waiting for me when we get there (it's supposed to ship on Monday).

Don't know how much I'll be blogging in the next few weeks, so until I talk at'cha again, adios!
