Packing, driving, and flying today. I'll be back in Saint-Aignan at about 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday (Feb. 14) — about 8:30 a.m. U.S. Eastern time. I just tried once more to check in for my flight on line, but my session hangs on the computer because I don't have a return ticket or even a return date. I'll have to straighten all that out at the airport by showing the Delta ground staff my French resident's card. I'm not at all sure when I will return to North Carolina, actually, but the airline isn't worried about that. As I've said before, today I'm leaving home to fly home. And I'm ready.
