We have had to cancel our Grand Canyon trip because not enough people can come along to make it viable. Despite the obvious: the length of the trip (25 days) and the time of year (November, when people have kids in school, Thanksgiving commitments, etc...), Chuck takes it personally and feels as though people don't want to go on the trip because he is the trip leader. He is very disappointed. As am I.
After getting up at 5 AM for the fourth morning in a row, I dropped Sara off at Cross Country practice, came home and snuggled back into bed for an extra hour of blissful sleep.
