I leave for two weeks in South America with my dad on Saturday. I hope no one's expecting a travelogue with photos and interesting stories and stuff. I'm no photographer and expect I'll need all my energy just get through these two weeks. It will be my very first time out of the country. So just know that between 28 August and 10 September I'll be having this new experience during which you might or might not hear from me.
BTW: I realize that's exactly the kind of information one should never post online because then people know exactly when your house will be sitting empty and vulnerable. But since my husband will be home the whole time, I'm not concerned. His doctor has cleared him of all dietary restrictions and approved almost all physical activity. Bob is walking without any aid at all and feels pretty good, but he's not going back to work until mid-September.
So there, all you burglars: I'll be on vacation, but my husband is home 24 hours a day and is ready to defend.
