Road trip! We’re off to Pennsylvania, in the morning, and here I am, taking my own sweet time with the packing. Ok, I’ve done some packing, but now I’m blogging while the Republican National Convention is on. I love Hannity.
But anyway, nowadays, getting ready for a trip seems to involve looking for every plug and battery charger I own, just as much as packing clothes and toothpaste. Two cameras requires two battery chargers, and both batteries. Maybe I won’t even use the cameras, but if I don’t have the chargers, I’ll need them. Then there’s the car charger for my phone, Bluetooth earpiece, mp3 player, and now, I have one for my Kindle Fire. Oh, and that’s before I get my plugs for my laptop, with the headphones.
Someone’s probably going to inform me that there’s a universal charger for all this, but I don’t have it yet. If it hasn’t yet been invented, I’m sure it’s on the way. No matter how many wires, I’m grateful for them, because they allow me to talk on the phone interminably, when the trip gets boring, and I can listen to any music I want, without digging for CDs. Good stuff.
My weekend will be spent with lots of good friends at a Bible conference, and lots of acquaintances that I haven’t seen in two years. People that I only see on Labor Day weekend, every year. We “young people” don’t eat with the conference, but go out for all our meals, and spend too much time thinking about food, or where to eat for the next meal.
Between the conference meetings, and eating out, I need to know that we’ll play a game of Ultimate Frisbee. Ok, actually, I threatened my soccer friends with dire punishment if they interfere with any games of Ultimate. Sure, there are two days to play in the afternoon, but we always end up with some rivalry for the field. When soccer takes over, a few fellow Frisbee lovers and I will hang out on the sidelines, trying to subvert the other players to the dark side.
So, I know I haven’t been sharing much lately, but I hope I’ll have some pictures and good times to tell you about, when I get back next week. Wherever you are, I hope you have a wonderful time with family or friends, and I’ll see you on the flip side.
