This weekend I'll be in Seattle; next weekend I'll be in San Diego. Is it possible to get weather jet lag (weather whiplash?)?
I'm headed to Seattle to research another "Knitter's Guide" like the "Knitter's Guide to Santa Fe and Taos" that Knotions published in late September. (Unfortunately, the link to that last story is broken; I assume it's part of the magazine's current web-hosting woes.) So yeah, you should pity me: I have to spend the weekend investigating Seattle's yarn stores. Actually, there's a lot of ground to cover, and I'm going to have to plan my time wisely and hustle.
Next weekend I'll be support staff again as Jane does her second (and final) Breast Cancer 3-Day. This time she's walking with both of her sisters, and I think they'll have a fabulous time. Jane did a great job of fundraising and surpassed her goal, because she's organized and diligent. It also helps that Shirley, her mother, had tons of friends who love and miss her.
We'll do something like a substitute Thanksgiving with Jane's family before we return (including her Alaska-based sister), and then we get to spend Thanksgiving at home together! You have no idea how wonderful that is unless you too are compelled to travel to relatives for every single bloody holiday. It's important to spend time with family, and I value it, but I hate the schlep. And leaving our aging, infirm beasties at home presents its own logistical challenges. My mother has agreed to let us bring the dogs with us to Reno for Christmas, but I suspect she has no idea how high-maintenance (that is, messy) Josie is these days.
