"Well, my bags are packed; I'm ready to go. . . ."
Well, not quite. There are suitcases in the guest room, and the bed is loaded with possibilities. The dilemma of taking too much vs. taking too little to wear. And exactly what those articles of clothing should be. This morning I said to Joe, "Don't wear anything today that you plan to take tomorrow. I'm going to wash when I get home after school." So I followed my own instructions and he said, "You look nice. That looks like an outfit you should take on the trip." Oy.
Whatever. That part will all work out somehow. The housesitter comes tonight for orientation, the wills are updated, and the emergency contact info has been provided to the kids. The cat is suspicious; he knows something is going on.
The really important things are in order: A good book, a new collection of sudoku puzzles, camera and batteries, sun cream, and most importantly: fingerwork! I have packed my three remaining blocks for Time Began in a Garden and also my three PIF projects to keep me sewing and happy while I'm away.
We leave for Greece tomorrow! It seems unbelievable.
I'll be back on the 27th -- until then: Khairete!
