Montreal Itinerary

Looks like it's going to take 2 full weeks, 14 days, to make Montreal. Guess I'm not the road warrior I thought I was, but I just can't imagine pushing that hard for that long. Also, I guess I can't just drop in on my Mom, who I haven't seen in nearly 10 years, for … Continue reading »

The Verdict

is yes. Sue just gave 30-day notice on the house. She'd already called the phone company and pulled the plug. The two adult children living with us intend to be living elsewhere before the end of September. It's on.

The Eagles Have Landed

Ian and Caitlyn have arrived for a quick overnighter before Trip #2. Beans on the stove, brown rice and cornbread in the oven, homemade salsa in the fridge. It's gonna be a great dinner, followed almost instantly by waffles (or pancakes, no one's decided for sure) for breakfast. By bedtime tonight we will have tripled … Continue reading »

Anyone Want to Put the Canfield Family Up for a Night or Two in Portland Next Week?

The best of plans sometimes have to change. We just found out this morning that our lodging accommodations in Portland, Oregon next week fell through.

It's 7:22 PM and There's Nothing I Need To Do About It

Best Beloved had left a handful of baby things out by the fence with a 'Free' sign. I set the dead empty computer cases out there, too. Except, not the one which had both a hard drive to bring Computer A back to life and the video card to bring Server B back to life. … Continue reading »

Where We're Going, Metaphorically Speaking

I'm feeling fairly squished and tentative today, but I'm going to soldier on and share the goals Sue and I talked about Tuesday night when we couldn't sleep. We realized that what was important to us was not what we had or did, but what this gave Fiona, so our goals are based on that. … Continue reading »

The plan was to announce our decision next Monday, June 28th, at noon. Well, that was what I wrote, anyway. The plan was to decide before then, not wait until then. And, it's decided. No point waiting. When you know, you know. Vancouver,we are 'go'for launch. If we come, they had better build it

Go/No-Go: Noon PST June 28th

We decided this morning that, although we need a couple more days to make sure there's water in the pool, we need to set a go/no-go date. So we did. At noon, Pacific Standard Time, on Monday June 28th, I'll post whether it's 'go' or 'no' and then, the madness begins (either way.)
