However, I offer them space for visiting at any time, and I will be sending gift in lieu of my presence.
The biggest problem is that I realized I also have no time to get out there. Because classes start that Monday, I'd be flying in Saturday morning, and back out Sunday night. That's almost more time in flight than in Cali. So when I have more time to make it for a longer stay, I will be out there.
I hope they can forgive me. :(
