Jeez -- just no time to do a proper entry today. Suffice to say that I had a wonderful time at Karen's, a great drive up and back with Susan, and that I got thoroughly lost trying to return the rental car yesterday (two hours worth), but since I didn't have anywhere to be last night, I chalked it up to more driving practice. Mostly cleaning and dealing with random stuff today -- a fair bit left to go, but I'm about to take a break and go have dinner with Lisette, who is unexpectedly in town. I expect not so much sleep tonight, since I have to leave for the airport tomorrow morning at 7:30 a.m. On the east coast for a week -- NY, CT, MA. ReaderCon!
