Off to Dallas

by Suw on November 18, 2006

This week is Thanksgiving, so Kevin and I are off to Dallas tomorrow to spend the holidays with his family. His brother lives in McKinney, and his parents are driving over from Yuma where they normally overwinter.
Last year, Thanksgiving was a completely different kettle of fish, with Kev rolling around in a muddy field in Berkshire, on his hostile environments refresher course. Of course, no matter how honed your skills are at spotting land mines or recognising different types of gunfire, nothing really prepares you for the viper pit of TVC, but still, he tried.
When I get back, I'm going straight down to Dorset to go and spend a few days with my parents and their new kittens whilst Kevin stays in the US an extra week to go hiking somewhere in the wilderness. Hiking's not really my thing, to be honest. A nice walk in the countryside with a pub at the end is more my style. Better yet, a nice walk in the countryside with a pub at the beginning and in the middle too.
Anyway, things here are starting to calm down, and it'll be nice to get away and decompress. Maybe then I can resume blogging as usual.
Right, on with the packing.
