Off we go

I'm home in Charleston.  The weather is...well....perfect.  High in the upper 60's and sunny for the foreseeable future.

Thankfully, the drive back from Raleigh yesterday afternoon wasn't too crazy which was a relief.  Driving anywhere on Thanksgiving week can become a challenge, but thankfully the roads were good, the trucks were good, my truck behaved, and I pulled into Charleston early enough to have a late dinner here.

For some reason I'm a little anxious about the trip to Dallas.  I just printed out my boarding passes...boarding time is friggin' 4:50am.  That's insane.  On Thanksgiving Day?  I suppose I should be looking forward to it but as I've mentioned all the way along I'd rather be home enjoying the day than traveling again.  Ugh.

I'm about to unpack from the last trip and re-pack for the next one.  I'm just got back from the gym where I did a little pre-Thanksgiving penance.  I've got a few other minor things to do....all in all I really can't believe that Thanksgiving is happening tomorrow.

I flew to Dallas last year the day before Thanksgiving - as in, a year ago today, - and it was snowing.  Not flurries snowing....but several inches worth of blowing snow snowing. Not cool.  Thankfully, this year the weather appears to be much more hospitable.

I'll be shopping early on Friday - it's a bit of a tradition.  There nothing I really want or need but it has just become something to do.  I've got a couple of things on my list of "To Do", but last year I bought so much stuff I actually needed to buy a Door-Buster deal on a suitcase to get all my stuff home.  Thankfully, I don't expect a similar experience this year.

I'll keep this short, as I've got packing to do and some early sleeping to get to.  Tomorrow is going to be a long day - so I'll close by wishing everyone a very Happy and Safe Thanksgiving, wherever you are!
