Count down. one week to go. There is a lot of preparation to be done when going away for so long. How did I ever do this when we were snow birds. Forward mail. check. Visit dermatologist one more time. Check. After all , when living in Florida,
that is what one does.. often. Put phone on vacation mode. check. I tried to cancel land line altogether, but it costs more to do that than to keep it. So I am keeping it. I just won't answer it. Call my cell phone if you love me. That rhymes with knock three
times if you love me. Take the Noodle to the Vet one more time to check his ears and get a sedative for the drive. For him, not me. Cancel local paper delivery. Gotta do that tomorrow. Keep the epaper. If I have an article in it, I need to cut it out and save
it, for I don't know why. Continue eating out of the fridge. I am on the last dish that my Grandson cooked for me. And everyone of the prepared dishes was wonderful. Now I will have an almost empty freezer. There is nothing special left in the fridge, either.
Now to unpack and repack. I am beginning to enjoy doing this. I almost have the packing down to a science. Someone actually told me that if I really need something... I could buy it. That is a new concept.
