I've got "We're Off to See the Wizard" running through my head. I'm leaving on my trip today! I've scheduled in time with all the relatives, starting with my brother and his fiancee this evening.
I feel remarkably well prepared, which means that in actuality I'll probably be leaving behind or forgetting something totally crucial.
I'm a little anxious about leaving the dogs. The s.o. will take wonderful care of them, of course--he always does--but I haven't left Silver for so long in quite a while. She's my little girl! And I've never left Cairo. It's separation anxiety, I think.
