” ‘Copper, you’re my very best friend.’
‘And you’re mine too, Tod.’
‘And we’ll always be friends forever, right?’
‘Yeah, forever…’ ”

– Fox & the Hound on Netflix. Why do I do this to myself?

A little out of it this morning…

… thanks to a less than stellar night’s sleep. In addition to a bad case of spaghetti brain, I think I am not getting enough exercise. I have done nothing since I had food poisoning three weeks ago!! Today is freezing cold and there is apparently a big snow/ice storm on the way, but I am still going to take a “lengthy” power walk around the neighborhood. I imagine it will be invigorating, if nothing else.

Otherwise, there is not much going on. The EuroTrip is 100% booked (wahoo!), and we are at the “hurry up and wait” point with Japan. This weekend, we head to Atlanta to celebrate a friend’s birthday, and in two weeks, we head to Savannah to celebrate Chuck’s 30th!

Speaking of Savannah, I feel like such a bad wife. I was so preoccupied with getting Europe figured out (we had delayed so much already), that I waited rather long to finally turn my attention to Savannah. Since it’s President’s Day Weekend and Valentine’s Day Weekend, sooo many ideal spots were all booked. But, I did find a good riverfront hotel and made reservations for our group at Chuck’s favorite restaurant there… so I guess I salvaged things overall… somewhat 🙂

Seriously though… we are running out of weekends down here in Georgia! I had hoped to squeeze in a weekend excursion to New Orleans, since I have never been, but I don’t think that will happen. Before I know it, we’ll be out of here and on our way home to DC for a few weeks!

Time sure is a-flyin’.

Morning discovery after one of our friends crashed for the night… Yes. Saturday night was THAT wild.

In other news, “Saving Mr. Banks” was incredible and you should all go see it. Immediately!
