Road trip to Las Vegas appears to be happening

It’s been touch and go this week.

Kathryn and I have a tradition of road tripping to Las Vegas the weekend before Christmas. We’ve been doing it since 2007.

However, since last weekend, the trip has been growing increasingly uncertain. A certain family health issue — I don’t want to elaborate right now — has been threatening to interfere with the trip.

As of this morning, the trip seems much more likely. Kathryn has packed her bags and appears ready to go. There’s still one last hurdle to jump. I’ll know for sure in a few hours if Kathryn can go.

Kathryn has assured me I can go with or without her. It may be a trap, so I’ve been choosing my words carefully. Although a couple days to myself without the distractions of home might be enjoyable, this is a tradition we’ve made together. It wouldn’t be the same by myself.
