On Tuesday I'll be leaving for South Africa with Matilda, to go stay with my dad and stepmum for a month (I'll be back on Thursday the 11th of June).

The boys are staying here, one has work, and the other has school and of course all the therapies he receives there. I didn't want him to miss any of that. A month is a long time in therapy terms really, especially as he's already had really patchy Physical Therapy this school year, between the late start of the first PT Alexis, and then the 2+ months where she wouldn't treat Dashiell until we got the medical all-clear from a neurologist to prove he didn't have epilepsy or seizures, and then Alexis left to work somewhere else and it took a while for the school to attract a new PT.

My youngest brother will be staying with my dad and stepmum too, he just graduated with his degree (Earth and Planetary Observation Science), and it will be really cool to get to spend some time with him, and for him to get to know Matilda, as he hasn't seen her yet. He was always really awesome with Dashiell, so I think he's going to really dig spending time with his niece too this time around.

Part of me considered taking my St. Petersburg cross-stitch piece with me, but I think that might be a little involved, so I figure I might get some reading done. Of course, most of the books I want to read seem to be hardback or trade paperback size, which sucks, as I don't really want to stuff too many of those into my suitcase, and risk the ire of airline staff and their luggage weight limits *sigh*. Time to go find other books to take with me instead I guess...

Oh, and while away, I'll only have very sporadic internet access, once or twice a week is usually the frequency with which the 'rents go to the internet cafe (they have no internet at the house at the moment), so odds are I won't be in touch much. My gmail would probably be the easier email address to contact me at (malediction @ ...) rather than my one, as it receives less mailing list and spam stuff, so easier to separate the wheat from the chaff and all that.
