Most (sane) people go south when it gets cold and snowy.
We're going north. Now that my paper is done -- for the moment -- I'm packing my syllabus stuff and we're going "up north".
I love the northern part of this state in the winter. It's snowy, quiet (except for the snowmobiles, and they'll go home tomorrow) and beautiful.
We'll spend a couple of nights with mom. Tomorrow is her birthday!!!!
Then we'll go to a funky little town up toward Canada for three nights in a really nice hotel/suite place. It's right on the water, has a fireplace, wifi and great decor. We'll spend the day hanging out and doing class prep.... mostly because we don't do winter (or summer) sports :). At night we'll have dinner in funky little places and drink hot chocolate by the fire.
By the end of it, I'll have syllabi for Logic, Ethics and Medical Ethics --- and the cats will be irritated.
sounds like fun, eh?
