I’m going on vacation! Well, it is a working vacation. I’m going to the American Veterinary Medical Convention in Minneapolis. I leave at an ungodly hour tomorrow morning. My flight out is at 6:30 AM. That means I have to leave the house by 4:30 AM. I’m trying to get absolutely everything done tonight so I just have to roll out of bed, brush my teeth, and run a brush through my hair to be ready to go. I even have the horses’ morning food in their stalls so I just have to grab them from the pasture.

All this torture means I get to Minneapolis in the morning. So, I can spend the day at the mecca of mass commericalism – The Mall Of America! I’m excited about that. I’m not really a shopper but I like to walk around malls and look at stuff. Biggest mall in the U.S. = lots of stuff to look at. After that I’ll have to buckle down and pay attention to lectures for several days.

So I’ll be back home late Wednesday.
