Prewriting

The final and longest leg of my journey back to chaos should be happening today, if this publishes itself correctly.

I figure to get home by midnight tonight, and be at homeschool co-op by 8 tomorrow morning as usual.

I don't plan to teach tomorrow, my co-teacher will be doing the lesson, lasagna.

I will be there physically, but not much more.

By tomorrow, I can also begin blogging about how the trip really went.

No matter what happened, I'm sure it was an adventure.
