We’re in countdown mode. Scurrying here and there, getting those To-Do list items crossed off. Paid the bills, balanced the checkbook (so I know how much I can spend), full gas tank, dog-sitter all set, mini-pedicure, and now the dirty work. What to pack. It could be cold, it could be hot. Guess I’ll have to bring one of everything – then we’ll see how easy it is to close my suitcase.
My husband is insisting that we leave NO LATER than 5am. In the car, backing out, and on the road. It won’t even be light out yet. I think 6am is more realistic but he is being very stubborn. I asked him how he slept last night. “I woke up at 4am. Practicing for tomorrow.” Oh geesh…. this is a vacation, honey!
So, I plan to have all but an overnight bag in the car, packed, ready to fly, tonight. Because I am NOT an early morning person. Oh, sure, I get up early enough most days, but I like to lounge on the computer, check out the morning news, have my cup of joe.
In other words, it’s hard to get me out of the house in less than an hour. More so when I’m leaving for over a week. But, one way or another, we are leaving early morning and I will be in the car!
You will forgive me if I’m a bit remiss in checking in with the blogging world. After all, eating lobster and sightseeing takes a lot of time and energy. If you get FPd, please give me a holler!
Until we speak again, take care of the homestead, and enjoy these last fleeting days of summer. I know we will!!! Unless we kill each other with all the togetherness … 24/7 … for 9 days!
