The suitcase and shoulder bag are packed [*], and SteelyKid is off to daycare. I've got a few more things to do around the house, a couple quick errands, and then I get on a train to go to New York City for a week.
Or, in the words of a rejected song-lyrics title for this post: vacation, all I ever wanted. (Woo!)
[*] Trivia: this is the first trip I have not packed any paper books for. I actually have two I want to read that we don't have in e-book format, but I didn't have space.
