In merely a few hours, I will be dragging my bags out into the snow and hailing a taxi to begin my grand winter adventure! 35 hours later, I will arrive in Mississippi! Woohoo! I can't wait to see my beautiful family!! Hi, beautiful family! :-) I will have a little more than 17 days to spend with you! Oh, yay! It is going to be so nice to talk in person, but also at the same time of day!

When I leave, it will be around 21 degrees with a windchill of 8. Now, there seems to be some discrepancy between weather.com's forecast and MSN's forecast...but either way, the temperature will more than double by the time I arrive! Maybe even close to triple!! Then, it looks like the temperature will drop...but it will still be like a tropical vacation for me! Bring out the leis!

My junior high students at the school I visit for kids who have disabilities do the cutest thing that I absolutely love. When we get ready to sing a song, they all yell together, "Music...STARTO!" Japanese syllables always end with a vowel (except for n alone, but, I digress)
