A place I've never been
After what feels like months of preparation, many, many to-do lists, and a whole lot of work, I'm leaving Critter Farm for a bit.
We - my man and I - are heading to Ireland, a place we've dreamed of travelling to for more than a decade.
Interestingly, getting to Ireland right now is a bit of a dicey proposition. Ever since the volcano in Iceland, known as Eyjafjallajökull ("AY-uh-fyat-luh-YOE-kuutl-uh"), started spewing giant, travelling clouds of ash, Irish airspace has been forced to close almost every other day it seems. The most recent ash cloud measures approximately 2,100 miles long and 1,400 miles wide and seems to be hovering just off the west coast of Ireland. Travel is always an adventure, isn't it? We are keeping our fingers crossed that it will be physically possible for us to land in Dublin when we get there on the morning of 5/10.
Though I will miss my animal babies, rest assured, the farm will be in good hands. I'll try to post at least a few farm and Ireland updates while I'm gone. This is assuming that they actually have Internet over in Ireland. (joke)
