Thursday, my mother and I leave for London to visit my sister-in-law and niece. I CANNOT wait. The kids are all going on separate vacations with various grandparents (we need a flow chart for that one) so the house right now is in perpetual packing motion. Except Cory, who is staying behind to PARTAY LIKE A BACHELOR work. I have my list of must see sites, mostly (OK entirely) consisting of literary minded pubs, Harry Potter things, and canoodling that niece of mine.

London!  Be prepared!
