Half an hour to taxi-time

We leave in a half hour for the airport. Bob's had two hours sleep, and I've had not much more. It's amazing how much stuff there is to do at the last minute, even though you've bored all day. Doggie is at the Pet resort. Little beast ran to the door and didn't want to know us. I got outside and burst into tears. The house was so empty when we got home. No little black nose or waggy tail to greet us at the front gate.

I think I would be excited if I wasn't so darn sleep-deprived. This will be such an adventure, one we may repeat for cycling in Feb 09, but definitely when we pick-up our babies. I wish we were cycling this time. I wish we were coming home with the excitement of the two-week-wait. Oh well. We'll still accomplish a lot and leave the oh so important genetics in the safe hands ... ewww ... I mean plastic straws or whatever the stuff is kept in ... of the docs.

Catch you from India my dear friends. xxx

Sleep? You wanted sleep? Think of it this way, no sleep makes for a very cranky couple of Aussies...that oughta scare any would-be terrorists away.

Be safe. We'll all be waiting for you and Bob's safe return.
