When I was in China (oh yeah, I booked a last minute trip and went to China right before Thanksgiving) I got some sad news from the home front. My Grandma/Travel Buddy had been diagnosed with terminal cancer.
So needless to say, I've had a change in plans. My short term plan was to turn in my NYC apartment keys, and stay in Central-Pennsylvania through December.
Since I just happened to have cleared my schedule for the next four months, I'll be sending some quality time with Grandma. In January I'm hoping to still do some traveling but it wont be at length. Then...? Good question, as soon as I figure it out, I'll let you know.
On a happier note, the thought of not having to put in real pants for the next 6 weeks is quite appealing and perhaps the silver lining in this situation.
