The boys and I are on the road for a few days. We dropped Avie at the kennel yesterday afternoon and drove as far as Normal, Illinois, where we spent the night at my brother-in-law's. Joey and Michael were up until somewhere between 3 and 4 am playing Halo 3 with their cousins. After dropping into an anniversary celebration for the hubby's aunt and uncle, the boys and I hit the interstate for another hour and are now checked safely into a hotel down the street and around the corner from my parents' house, where the boys are napping until my mother gets off work at 7. Yay for hotels with wireless internet. We should be back in the homeland Tuesday-ish, although I won't really be out of touch.
