My Theoretical Vacation

I'm trying to go on vacation - I'm supposed to be flying out on Sunday night.

I use the phrases "trying to go" and "supposed to be" because things are going wrong. Well, one thing but it is a pretty important thing. You see, a few months ago I arranged to stay at my friend's new apartment. This was very, very nice of my friend as hotels are expensive and free is so much better than expensive. She took possession of the apartment August 1st and then went home to New York to spend time with her family. She put the key in the mail on Saturday the 7th. As of yesterday, the key has yet to arrive.

I still have today and tomorrow for it to get here. But it's been four business days now and I'm getting worried. Hopefully it just arrives today and I can laugh and realize that once again I freaked out too early. Hopefully.

Update: The key did arrive today. It took so long because with the metal key in the envelope it had to be hand processed instead of just going through the machine. So - if you ever mail a key here is my advice: a) Don't mail the key, use FedEx and b) if you do mail the key expect it to take longer than normal.

Boston here I come! If anyone has any suggestions for fun things to see and do in Boston (and Vermont) let me know...

Yay for keys! Get hungry, and go to Legal Sea Foods in Boston (er, unless you live in Baltimore or Florida or somewhere else with one, in which case it won't be so special -- but since you drove "down" to Colorado the other day, I'm guessing not).
