This post will come to you from the twilight zone. When I get on the plane for Middle Earth, it will be the second day of January but when I get off the plane 14 hours later I will have lost a complete day and will arrive on the fourth day of January. Time is so weird. So while I am in this twilight zone, I thought I’d provide you an updated map and show you the Mini-Aunty that will stay behind at the office and keep my map company.
While in the twilight zone, I will let my thoughts wander, because I can. But really my thoughts wander whether I’m in a twilight zone or not.
I wonder what Big Sister Z will learn in pre school. She’ll be two months smarter than before I left. I know she already misses me and I hadn’t even left when she said it to me. Oh so heartbreaking.
I wonder if Little Brother Z will be calling his sister by her proper name by the time I return, rather than calling her by the name of a fuzzy fruit with green flesh that is very common in New Zealand. It’s really cute to hear, but really, that’s not her name.
I will be leaving behind winter in Vancouver. Hurray! This means no rain storms, no wind storms and…I would like to say snow storms, but who am I kidding. It’s Vancouver. Our last snow dump lasted for two days and then it was washed away completely by rain on the third day. I wonder if there will a larger dump of snow while I’m gone. I wonder if it will last longer than two days.
I will be leaving behind my friends and family, hopefully with the motivation to continue with their spinning and kickboxing classes. Will they kick my butt when I return? I certainly hope so. Maybe they’ll take up a new class while I’m gone.
I will miss my friends and family. But there is no going back. When this is posted, I will be travelling through the twilight zone, having already lost a day even though I’ve only been in the air for just a couple of hours. My next post to you will be in Auckland, New Zealand.
Until then, I will sign off and wish you a very good night.
