Exploring life and the world with wide eyes and curiosity.

Let the travel experience begin…

Late Sunday night. Minutes before midnight. I’ll be at the airport by 5:00 a.m. on Wednesday, so I have just two days left in Seattle. “Goodbyes” and “See-You-Laters” are stacked one on top of the other, leaving snippets of time to tend to the details of the move itself. But the fare-the-wells are essential. (I’ll get it all done, really!)

I sold my car today! (That’s a commitment to going!) Then my brother and his wife drove me south to the airport to pick up a rental car for two days. What a lesson in bad signage at the airport! Perhaps next time I’ll rent a car from a company that WANTS me to find them, rather than renting from Budget! We wasted an hour searching for their rental counter.

Let the travel experience begin!

Minutiae – IMPORTANT minutiae – are what’s left for the most part. Those details, and actually packing my bags (which I haven’t really started yet). Time to really focus and concentrate (as if I haven’t been for months?!) Then, come Wednesday morning, I leave it all behind. What I haven’t gotten done by then must not have been “mission critical”.

    Have a glass of wine. Relax. Try not to get too stressed. What you forget, we can mail to you — or you can buy over there. Wouldn’t you rather wear Milano fashions anyway?? You don’t want to be so exhausted trying to get out the door that it takes you a month to recover.

    Love you!

    By the way, what will your new mailing address be? It isn’t on your “Getting in Touch” page. Or have you already sent it out to the fambily?
