Taking Time Out for an Egyptian Trip

Sunday, January 24, 2010

Many of you know I'm going to Egypt. I leave for New York next Sunday and leave for Cairo the evening of 2/1. I'll be in Cairo for several days and then we're taking a 3 day Nile Cruise to Luxor. We'll be there for about 3 days. While there we'll be taking some Middle Eastern Dance classes from professional dancers. We'll finish our trip back in Cairo. I'll be seeing the Pyramids and a number of museums. I hope to even get a chance to ride a camel. I return on Valentine's Day.

In order to finsish getting ready for the trip, I will be cutting way back on computer time, including my time on SP. I need to get my AOL mail box down as much as possible. Since I'm unable to actually do much with my AOL account, I'm unable to file messages into my folders. While I'm gone, my DH will uninstall AOL on my computer and reinstall it. Hopefully when I return, I won't have all these computer problems.

I will not be participating in challenges or weigh ins after tomorrow. I will probably not be able to visit your pages and read your blogs. I will miss my SP friends and look forward to sharing my adventures and pictures with you after I return.

    Oh, Helen!! ::hugs & HUGS & tears of gr8 *happy* for you, Sweetheart:: I am sooo *H*A*P*P*Y* for you. THIS opportunity could NOT have happened to a SWEETER more deserving person, my friend!! Ooh, I'm gonna' MISS you- but I'm gonna' also be thinking of you everyday. I hope your journey is safe, calm, & above all else, a total BLAST, girl!! You're gonna' see parts of the world that many of us are still longing to see, & touching history that resonates the mystery & magnificence of lost ages!! I'd be a little jealous if it was anyone else but you!! Would you do me a tiny favor while you're there at the pyramids? Would you reach down in the sand, let it fall again through your fingers, & think of me? Maybe even, say my name? I will live on the edge of my seat, waiting for you to come back with all of your stories & pictures & other lovely things to share. Take care, Dearest, & don't forget your camera & film & extra underwear & toothbrush & any medications you'll need & your sunglasses & a journal & a few pens & a straw hat with a wide brim & some sun block &............
