Almost Time To Go

The pet-babies are all at Mom and Dad's house. Doggie was already there, but the two kitties had to pack a little suitcase for their toys and pillow beds, and then be put in the carrier. One of them walked in willingly and was actually ready and waiting to go, but the other had to be sneaked up on when he was hiding in the den. That same one is now hiding under my parents' guest bed, and the other was mixing it up with my Mom's cat when I left.

I'm taking one piece of luggage, other than a tote bag/purse that I'll carry on with me. I'm quite impressed with myself on that, especially considering I'll be gone about two weeks

I can't wait to be out in the middle of Puget Sound on that boat....just drifting along, quiet and peaceful, just me and the Captain...and hopefully a few seals and dolphins. I'd like to see some of those.

And then there's the road trip. We've got a small moving truck rented. We're stopping to see Yellowstone, Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, and the St. Louis Arch along the way.

I'm leaving for the airport early in the morning. I'm so excited! I can't believe it's finally here.

Have a good and safe trip, Ms. Chatelaine. ;-)

Girl, girl, girl...Have a great time! I'll be thinking about y'all floating on that water!

The Captain said...

Have a good flight.
(I've got a tenous connection to a free wireless at the marina.)

travel safely, darlin'

Make that old No Star take you to Cracker Barrel for breakfast on the road.

TWC said...

Guess you must already be there. Didn't see it yesterday. [shrugs]

We'll expect some updates and travelogues during the next two weeks.

Janie at Sounding Forth said...

And....Texas, right?

Please come to Texas!

I'm thinking they're going to be considerable north of you, Janie.
