i had forgotten in this instance that i have a) a mother that worries obsessively and sits here and hounds me about the time, what i need to pack, why am i taking this, and what in the world is that, and b) other people that use the, oooooh, bathroom, when i am still in my pajamas and need to brush my teeth and finish getting ready so that we can leave in 15 min. (mom's boyfriend is currently in there for who knows how long, and has been in there for an extended period of time..)
oops, he's out! i must hurry and go!
i will try to update while i'm there!
