How sweet, Michelle! And as far as a massage or day at the spa, I don't care about the mani-pedi stuff or eyebrow shaping (I barely have any now as it is), but the massage I was given as a gift (1 hour from a neighbor whose computer I repaired) was wonderful and the most memorable part was the hot rocks. They are incredible. Ask if they have hot rocks. :)

Claire, I spent several months as a park ranger living in a travel trailer, and though the space was cramped, it was a wonderful experience. I wish I hadn't let my ex talk me into selling it - for casual trips or for using as a guest room, it was nice. A small space does make you decide what is necessary and though you may have some stuff stored in bins in odd corners, even that has to be useful stuff.

Susan, that sharp plastic and razors report is troubling. I hope she was just clearing out stuff she'd kept out of reach of the kiddos during her stay. If one has free rent it SEEMS to me an unspoken rule that one should leave the space either as one found it or in a little better shape, as a way of saying thank-you.

I spent nearly an hour on the phone with my most remote kiddo as he put together a CV (Curriculum Vitae) to use as a resume. I pointed out that he didn't probably have yet the kind of scholarly things a CV asks for, but it's not a bad start (keep it in a file with a list of classes, any papers published, conference attended, etc) and extract from it for a resume. That's what he really needs right now, but starting with the CV format isn't a bad idea. Businesses coming to campus to interview students - and the one tomorrow evening is the biggest of the big. It Gobogles the mind, so to speak. :)
