    Home tomorrow. It's been a good week, augmenting the teaching staff for our critical care aeromedical evacuation specialist course. Mess hall food have been less than stellar, one day there was no protein option for dinner aside from one hard boiled leftover egg at the salad bar... I supplemented later with packed beef jerky and kerrygold cheddar. Ah well. Made the best of what was available. I was surprised at the amount of sugar in some food items, including beets and pulled pork. Not nice at all. I did manage to find some lovely locally made dry apple cider, which I'm not convinced is a really good thing, but it is rather nice. And a great local baco noir.

    Meetings tomorrow morning, then the drive back into Toronto to the airport. I have a guest pass from hubby for the lounge, so that's cool. Home by 9pm. Weekend to launder and regroup, restock food for the boys, work on Monday, then stupid early Tues morning off to Vegas. 8 days there. Our friends arrived there today, they had a voucher for a hotel for a few days, then they'll join us in the time share place when we get in. It should be a fantastic week.

    Ah - Vegas! Would love to see some good food pics. I'm living vicariously thru others travels as I'm still lugging around this big cam boot. Maybe we'll get away in November. Have fun, GS!

    Home, sweet home. For a few days, anyway. The drive into TO sucked due to traffic, but the lounge pass was great to get some relaxation and a couple glasses of wine was very appreciated.

    Of course, hubby seems to be all packed already for Vegas. Really, dude? And he has Monday off work too, which I don't. . I'll get to packing tomorrow. Should shop for a new pair of sandals, wasn't in the mood today.

    I bottled my kombucha! The scoby has grown, and is more of a gelatinous formed mass than when I checked him last. Still small, but the brew definitely has a kombucha like character. And even a tad fizzy when pouring. I added just a bit of fresh ginger to the bottles. I can leave them out till Mon night or Tues am before we depart, so won't get a chance to try until we get home. Sipped a bit of the main batch, which is rather tasty. I put on a new gallon to brew while we're away. The house is a little cooler now, which will slow the process, but that's fine as it won't be bottled for nearly 2 weeks, miminum. Depending on how the first batch tastes, I may try adding some fruit to the next ones. I'm excited!

    No new damage to my car this trip, hopefully that was a one of thing for son #2. Getting food stocked up for them, as we'll be gone a full week, they should manage just fine. And #1 is technically an "adult" now... #2 turns 17 on Monday. Hubby initially wanted to leave on Mon, but I felt we should be home for his birthday (which, coincidentally is also birthday 60 for one of friends we're vacationing with). We'll celebrate that one on Thursday with dinner at Gordon Ramsey Steak. Excellent.

    It was good to have my local tasty eggs today, after the pale, bland ones at the mess hall last week. Tonight's dinner is the usual weekend fare of grilled steak, mushrooms, peppers, baked potato and a bottle of malbec. That meal never gets old! And hubby made a home brew kit of dry cider, which is ready to taste, so we'll give that a try tonight as well. Hopefully it's good. If not, it wasn't expensive, and we don't need to get it again. Of course, if it is good, that could be dangerous.

    Tomorrow's plan is laundry, starting on packing, shoe shopping, and pedicure. Finally have time to start getting excited about the vacation!

    Pretty much so. I don't envy your regular schedule.

    Packing is mostly done. Casual dresses for the most part. No luck on the shoe shopping, it seems since I last browsed a couple weeks ago, the summer shoes are all gone and now it's all about fall shoes and boots. Guess I'll just have to shop in Vegas, heheheh.

    Feeling rather heavy and bloated, thanks to TOM popping up a couple days early. Par for the course for vacation. I suppose better to start today rather than on the flight. And hopefully done and over that much sooner.

    I expect a super busy work day tomorrow, hopefully I can slide out a bit early, but won't count on it. I have a lot of stuff to get rolling for the November Brazil work trip, which seems to be a go, as long as I can get my visa and such done.

    Taking son #2 and girlfriend out to dinner for his birthday tomorrow. I think it's going to be sushi at their fave place. Fine by me. And there's an ice cream cake (his request) for dessert. Meh.

    All packed, I think. Flight at 7 am, taxi at 530. But we arrive by 130, so lots of time to enjoy the day. Hubby wanted to go carry on bag only, but I decided I wanted check one in, wanted to take a few extra girly grooming things. And with the larger bag, there's plenty of room for any purchases I may have, heehee.

    Son #2 was happy with his birthday stuff. A new game, contribution to his car fund, sushi dinner and DQ ice cream cake. I passed on the cake, as it was oreo. Still full from sushi, anyway. Forgot to bring my gluten free tamari, and one of the rolls had a bit of tempura in it which I should have left alone. Hubby had a good sized bit of the cake. When it comes to ice cream, he forgets about the gluten thing, silly man.

    I'm getting excited!
