Katherine, Jack and Sam got on a plane this afternoon with Luther and Marilyn bound for Jo'burg. They'll stay overnight, spend the day, then catch an overnight flight to London, then a connection to Minneapolis. Seems a shame, as a perfectly good BA flight from Lusaka to London was supposed to take off tomorrow morning but was canceled due to the strike.

The long and short of it is that I'm kicking around an empty house, looking forward to a night of uninterrupted sleep, and cursing my wife (who I love, and who is wrangling two kids, with help from the grandparents, on a series of what I'm sure will be more and more hellish flights) for feeding the kitten that set up shop in our yard a few days ago because now the wretched thing won't stop mewling loudly outside my window, thereby throwing into question my ability to get a night of uninterrupted sleep.
