Because Grandma Kroll's funeral will be on Saturday, Ian and I can go together, so we'll wake up bright and early tomorrow (Friday) and take a 6:15 a.m. flight to Los Angeles. We're coordinating with Liz and Keith so we can travel together once we're on the ground. On Sunday morning, we'll fly back to New York, no layovers, and get back at 9:30 p.m.
Thanks for all your good words and thoughts, everybody. It really helps to know we have a support system!
