happy, happy day before thanksgiving, dear ones!

it’s been one of those giddy “last day before the holiday” days, coupled with pre-road trip excitement. i’m off to toronto in the morning with kenny o., and it’s the best way to spend the weekend that i can think of. i seem to have that certain travel bug that makes me so, so restless if i’m in town for more than a month or two…

so i think i’m going to take a trip to the u.k. and europe next summer. anyone wanna join me? (if i say it out loud, then it’s much more likely that i’ll actually go!) i’ll definitely have to trek to sheffield to meet the lovely viv, author of the love blog that i’ve added to the sidebar. AND, she’s returned the favor, so this thing has gone international. thanks, viv!

giddy, giddy, giddy…i spent my afternoon at the mall today with one of my 17 year old clients. immersing myself in a suburban consumer mecca is not my idea of fun. but it was fun–so much so that i found myself thinking it might have been nice to have a little sister after all. i’m amazed by the kids i work with sometimes. this girl grew up watching her father hit her mother regularly, and her mother lose herself in drinking as a result. but she and her brothers have all turned out to be great kids. it’s hard to explain resiliency sometimes.

i must pack now. i’m not sure if i’ll be able to post over the weekend, but will be keeping a running log of posts for monday.

give thanks this weekend, no matter where in the world you are!
