All my bags are packed  
Yes, I am leaving on a jet plane today, heading home to BH and Scout. Tomorrow we will gather for Thanksgiving with family and friends (and mimosas). I have been on the road for 2 weeks in a row. I have one suitcase filled with dirty clothes, another one with books and audio collected from NCTE and ALAN, and the "spare" bag that contains the mementos I am taking home. It is very light. Here are the contents:

1. The program from the National Book Award ceremony
2. The wrist corsage I received as a judge for the NBA ceremony
3. The ALAN Workshop program
4. Emergency books in case flights are delayed
5. Power cord for the computer

But the real unpacking I will do is not physical. I will be sorting through my notes, physical and mental, from these past two weeks. There is so much there to ponder. One of the reasons I love being active in this profession is that I get the chance to learn more and more about what I love: books and reading and kids.

And so I head home today, suitcases filled with things. But mind stuffed with ideas, plans, and so much more.

Happy Thanksgiving. I usually follow you on FB, but I have been so enraged on there that I am taking a vacation to LiveJournal where people are sane. Love all your posts.
