so i'm off to fisl in brazil this afternoon. it's currently snowing, which portends badly for my first flight. the snow isn't very heavy, so hopefully it doesn't delay the flight which would result in me most likely missing my flight to sao paulo. so, knock on wood that i don't get stuck in toronto for the night.
i've got a bit of cleaning left to do around the house before i leave.. maybe an hour's work or so. it's not all drudgery though; i smiled as i swept together and put away all the parts to the desktop computer that p. has been taking apart component by component for the last 2 days in the living room. i'll get to the rest of the house as soon as i'm done this blog entry,. that and pack my suitcase.
i'll be missing p.'s birthday on the 14th, which sucks. we did an early birthday for him on saturday, though, so that was good ... but still. would be nice to have been here on the actual day. we had a lot of fun though: build-a-bear, gifts from friends, dinner out and a calgary flames hockey game to finish the evening. it was his first hockey game, so i suppose he's now officially canadian or something ;)
i'll be offline for much of the next 24 hours or so, so if you can't find me online that's why. next blog entry will hopefully be from porto alegre.
