Maeve will be a seasoned international traveler before the year end. I was also busy purchasing our tickets to Winnipeg for Christmas. Yes, I know, it seems like cruel and unusual punishment to yank an infant from her warm and sunny Ethiopian summer and subject her to the cruel arctic-type cold of Winnipeg. It may be verging on child abuse. Sorry Maeve, but your Aunt, Uncle, cousins, and grandparents want to spoil you on your first Christmas... (I might mention that she will get plenty spoiled by her Gran upon arriving home... she should be plenty prepared)
I amended my leave of absence dates today. My last day of work will be next Friday and then I'll be off for 3 months... Yay. The timing to be off for all the holidays could not have worked out better. Well done Maeve.
