Anyway, it's a comfy waiting room, with free wifi and free drinks. What more could a girl ask for?
Now to sifting through the stuff I brought, and messing with reports and such. Working on getting to my number for i².
I stayed home last night and the night before, to take advantage of having no work, and spend some quality family time together. Last night, we surfed through summer camps in France that made Flar and I drool, but didn't interest Tigger. And he's come up with such a sweet reason to stay home: he wants to spend this last summer taking the opportunity to bug his big brother before he goes away to college.
We did some calendar planning.
Upcoming events, in detail or in brief:
May 1: Flar begins PD with the Cycler; Calling Party at Quest that evening
May 3-4: i² Commitment weekend at Quest
May 10-11: First i² offering
May 16: Flar and my 27th wedding anniversary
May 23-26: First annual AWP: Anybody Wanna Potluck, the party formerly known as PWP: Poly Wanna Potluck
May 27: Mom's 70th Birthday
May 30: Mom and Dad arrive SDF 12:40pm EDT; Tigger is honored at WKU at 2pm CDT for his ACT scores
May 31: Mom & Dad's 50th wedding anniversary; formal dinner being planned
June 6: Critter's High School Graduation
June 7: party being planned
June 8: Mom & Dad flying back to Texas
July 11: Flar flying to Brazil to visit Gaucha
June 21: Tigger's first Summer Sleepover begin planned
July 19-21: Mom & Dad flying to Louisville for an International Gideons Convention, staying with us before convention
July 22: Earliest date for Flar to return from Brazil with Gaucha in tow
July 28: Mom & Dad flying back to Texas
August 13: Flar, Gaucha, Critter, Tigger & I all drive to Atlanta in van packed with Critter's school belongings, to drop Gaucha off at airport and stay overnight in Atlanta
August 14: The four of us take the Crescent to New Orleans and stay overnight
August 15: The four of us take the Sunset Limited to Houston; Mom picks us up at the station in a borrowed Suburban, and we stay over two nights. (Limited refers the weekdays it runs, I imagine; the Limited hits NOL and HOU on MWF)
August 17: The five of us drive to Rice, help Critter carrying in bunches of belongings; Flar and I attend a parent meeting; then Mom, Flar, Tigger and I drive back to San Antonio to see Daddy before we fly home the next day.
(Plan B involves a longer drive - to Chicago - an overnight on the Texas Eagle - to San Antonio - and a roundtrip drive on Sunday to Houston and back. Various factors, including the possible need for manual PD therefore private toilet facilities on the train, along with higher room fares on the Texas Eagle, makes the comparison almost a wash, and dependent on the air arrangements that Flar can make.)
Right now, the only reservations made are Mom and Dad's air travel; the rest of the planning was just dates and info gathering.
Today, I've got miscellaneous number crunching to do, and the Mat tonight. We're supposed to get a delivery of bunches of boxes today, and I'll get to move them into place if the driver doesn't do it for us. Flar's not allowed to lift stuff. Nothing on tap for tomorrow, so I'm hoping to tackle the front hall. And maybe do some filing or sort books-to-keep from books-to-sell.
