Sunday Skyping with Rosie

I made a very rare spur-of-the-moment decision this past week.  And as Gus pointed out, not only is this rare but rarer still because it involves flying - not something I do without lots of preparation.  But on Wednesday I had a thought that I would like to spend Rosie's 1st birthday with her.  I woke up Thursday and checked for flights to Portland.  I made sure that Dan will be here to watch the dogs, and I sent a quick email to Gus to make sure that they had no other plans for that week.  By 10 o'clock that morning I had received confirmation for my flights there and back.  I am still amazed that I did this in a monumentally short time frame.  But now I am so excited that I will soon get to see Rosie in person.  Last time I was there she was only 3 weeks old, and now she's almost walking.  Skype is a wonderful thing, perhaps one of my very favorite technology-type things.  But there are no virtual hugs, and I can't wait to see that beautiful smile for real.

Fun! When you arrive you should setup a Skype with her from the next room and then pop out to surprise her.
