But before we descend into the depths of me blogging about the contents of the boxes that I've packed in an utterly willy-nilly fashion (the way I'm packing things, you'd think we're fleeing an advancing horde of hungry teens or something) - I want to tell you about Saturday evening.
MathMan, Garbo and I got to meet Traveling Man Rick who was visiting Atlanta this weekend. Oh my word, I was so excited to meet him and I was fretting that I wouldn't be able to pull it off because The Dancer had prom, we're packing to move, Garbo is difficult (I know, this is not news), The Actor had a birthday party to attend, blah, blah, blah busy.
But Rick - an amazingly warm, witty and wonderful guy - drove all the way up to our little slice of Georgia heaven (read: way outside of Atlanta) to meet us at the local Starbucks. We hung out and talked about all sorts of things and I marveled once again at how you really can feel like you know someone after reading their blog for a while.
Rick is fabulous on his blog. He's even better in person.
Rick - thank you for coming so far out of your way to spend time with us. It was such a delightful time, the highlight of a busy weekend.
And when bloggers meet, there must be pix, right? So here we are....
