The Dawn's Early Light

Apologies for last night's wee-hours-of-the-morning post.  Clearly, my soul was fraught with stress and sleeplessness and crazy emotions.  But now - lo!  How soft the light through yonder window breaks!  My soul is lifted by the bright of the day, and I am happy again.

I managed to get a bit of sleep and woke up pretty refreshed, actually, and raring to start this last day in DC.  I finished packing this morning (woohoo!).  I checked in to my flight online and chose my seat.  I had to buy extra baggage allowance - you're only allowed one checked bag on Virgin Atlantic if you're in Economy, which is ridiculous - but I have so much stuff to bring over that it was absolutely necessary.  Now I'm sitting in my favorite cafe/bar/restaurant watching the USA/Algeria game.  (Go USA!)  Then I have a haircut, some last errands, and then back home to make sure I have everything together.  We leave for the airport at 3:30pm - that's so soon!

So yes, I am in a much better mood, and so excited to start my adventure in London.  See you on the flip side!


  1. Safe flight!!!!

    I am so bummed about Virgin's new bag allowance. I flew them in Feb and checked 2 bags in economy. Uck. I'm flying them in August so I guess I"ll be purchasing extra baggage as well. That was one plus about Virgin (being able to check 2 for free).
