The rambler heads west.

I am leaving the house at about 5am tomorrow with a suitcase, a husband, a purse, a briefcase, and no doubt, some super sleepy eyes, to catch the bus for the airport. We are flying to San Francisco for about a week-long stay in California. This is our first trip to California, and we are so excited. We’ll definitely be checking out the city, but we’re also going to drive up to the Redwoods National Park and check out Sonoma on the way. It’s a little bit business for me, as I’m presenting at the American Sociological Association’s annual meeting. So the last few days have been a whirlwind of trying to get everything ready. We have a few more things to throw in bags, a few hours of sleep to get, and then we’re off! I’ll play catch-up on here when we return next week.

Still here, but getting ready to be there

A lot has been going on since I last wrote, and I promise to catch up soon. There have been adventures in Indy, a baby’s first birthday party, fun things in the news, and ups and downs with teaching. But tomorrow we are headed to DC for the nation’s birthday and a reunion with two of our favorite people. Plus, I can’t bring myself to write here until I respond to a very, very, very overdue reply to an email from my oldest friend. That writing has to happen first.
