Off we go!

So tonight we fly to The Netherlands. I just checked in (online)and I got an email from our Airbnb hostess about the check-in there, making it all very real. I still have some packing to do, but we've got almost a full day ahead.

It's been almost five months since I was last there (but I spent those seven days in the hospital with my mom) and over nine months since T. left.
It will be weird not to have a home there anymore. To stay in an Airbnb apartment. To be visitors only and to be there for only seventeen days. But all that doesn't matter, really.
I'm really looking forward to being with my family again.

Last week I was thinking about this blog and sort of planning content for the weeks to follow. And then I realized that this is not my job (though how wonderful would that be?). I don't need to post, and I can take some time off if that's what I need to do.
And I think I'd like to spend as much time as I can soaking up this time with the girls and my parents.
So my blog, answering comments and my reading and commenting on your blogs will probably be sparse these weeks. I've got some posts prepared and scheduled for the following week, but I have no clue at all if I'll post the weeks after. I think I'll pop in to wish you all a Merry Christmas, and maybe I'll share some pictures, but I just don't know how things will work out. We'll see.

I hope you're having a wonderful December too!
