excused absences...

do you think my italian instructor will buy it if i call off due to travel in italia?? i hope so...because i'm thinking a week in italia trumps 2 classes in the US for sure! Little Man & i are off to the eternal city (& then some) after Thankgiving in PA with our extended family.

alas, Baby Girl is still in the rainforest for this holiday - hanging out, not with turkeys but with toucans (her research project)! she is home in less than a month & you know i cannot wait to see her!!

blogging might be a bit light until after friday (& pending my ability to find the internet POS in roma). may all of you who celebrate Thanksgiving this week have a wonderful holiday counting your blessings...

What? You're leaving??? I didn't get the memo! ;o)

I can't wait to hear what you report back though....

Yes, I think it would trump two classes, particularly if you take your 'fluent' pen with you.

Have a lovely trip. Happy Thanksgiving, Sally

(Oh, your word verification reads viasi. That would be "Via, si" - what a coincidence.)

Have a happy thanksgiving ;)

Jennifer said...

oh, brother. not italy AGAIN. ;)

I do have some Illy in the pantry for Thursday - it's not Italy, but it will have to do. Maybe I'll read Under the Tuscan Sun again while I sip...

You must be finding good travel deals - you really must post an entry on how and where you find them so we can all go, too!!!

Deb--I finally got caught up. It had been such a long time. I'm sitting here crying. I've never even met you. Honey I'm so sorry. I can just imagine--from how much inspiration and care you've provided me, with only your words and attention. . . .what inspiration you must have brought to them. How proud they must be to have you as their daughter. Peace be with you.

Andrea said...

Me again. Can I get your physical address? Thanks dear.
