Well, I'm not driving to Philly today.

Back at Christmastime, my aunt and her husband invited me to Philadelphia to join them for Passover. Rob is Jewish, and he always does a big Seder. I was excited about it and requested the time off so I could go. I called my aunt on Easter and let her know I was coming for sure. She was surprised but happy.

So for the last few days, I've been trying to contact my aunt to find out what time I should get there today, what the dinner dress code was, etc. And I haven't heard back from her.

Some of this is my fault: I meant to call last weekend but didn't get to it. I e-mailed her on Wednesday and left a phone message at 7:45 last night. I called again this morning and left another message.

I'm not sure what I think at this point. I could just drive up there and arrive on their doorstep, but I don't feel comfortable with that. Leslie is more formal than the rest of the family, and I've been out of touch with her for so long -- not to mention that it's been five years since I've been at her house -- that just showing up sounds like a bad idea.

So I'm waiting. If I hear from them tonight, I can drive there tomorrow, have dinner, and drive back on Sunday. It's a lot of driving in a short time, but I'd do it.

And if I don't hear from them at all, I have no problem just kicking back and enjoying my time off, which I desperately need. I've got lots of things I can do. In fact, I'm tempted to book a 25 percent off massage for today since I'm here, but I don't want to use money I might need if I go up there.

I'm sad about all of this, but not upset. I had a lot of expectations for this weekend that I haven't communicated to anyone, least of all the people I'm supposed to visit. So if this isn't meeting my expectations, it's because I didn't ask for what I wanted. I understand that. But I'm still a little bummed.

I'll keep you posted as events warrant.
