Misc updates

Found out that the dates for the Poland/Russia trip - September 9th to September 18th. Departure & Return city will be NYC. Hmmm, maybe I'll get my trip to Cooperstown? While Karen is doing her official meeting/conference/demo/whatever during the day, I will get to partake in "fascinating excusions for the non-participants". Fine with me =). Guess I'd better pull out some of my Russian language books so that I can at least ask the basic questions and refamiliarize myself with the cyrillic alphabet. Need to learn some basic Polish too =)

Got a phone call from my 2nd secret santa victim. "Hi Deb! It's got to be you who's dropping off all the presents!?" Lisa said she'd been trying to figure out just who was sending her stuff and she kept peeling off the labels off the interoffice envelopes, trying to figure out the last office it had been in. See, I'm not paranoid! That's why I had been getting envelopes from different departments. *weg* But the last two were from IT - I was in a hurry. Oh well. She enjoyed being victimized *lol*

I need to go to the store... Need a few gift cards and something for Auntie Mary and something for cousin's Mom. Maybe I'll find a short story book or something. It's better to go today than tomorrow, but I just can't find the energy to go.

I'm taking the kids out for the day tomorrow. Tentative plan is to go to the chapel and leave Christmas flowers. The chapel is always beautifully decorated, so I think the kids and I will wander through for a bit. Then we're going to drop off the Christmas cookies at Auntie Oscar (Asako) and Uncle Taro's place. Maybe we'll bring lunch too.
