So -- it's exciting to be able to go somewhere, but I don't think I've ever gone somewhere and not been in a flap the day before. And I know people who travel every week -- well, they used to. I would have died long ago!
I had to make sure that all my travel docs were in order. And it seems you have to resubmit your vaccine papers for each trip. So far, there's no one beside me on the plane. Then I still have to change some previous arrangements - hotels, cars, etc. And seriously - trying to contact anyone is a nightmare. I still have one more hotel to reconfirm, a car rental, and one more flight to change. I'll do it along the way. Sigh...............
Then there's the matter of getting everything done at home. I've been madly sending e-mails all day, and I have a couple more to send tonight. Oh yes-- I'm writing this the night before you get to read it because there will NOT be time tomorrow, and if I'm lucky, I'll get a few hours of sleep. Not to worry -- I can sleep on the plane for five hours if I need to.
I'm not packed -- I know -- in less than 12 hours, I'll be on a plane, and I haven't packed. That's normal for me. I have all my non-clothing items on the kitchen table, so I consider that packed. It's just a matter of opening the suitcase and the backpack and shoving it in! And let's hope there's room for a pair of shoes, a couple pairs of pants, and the few other things I need. I travel as LIGHT as I possibly can. No way am I checking luggage if I can help it.
And thank goodness I shipped those boxes earlier because one of my modes of transportation does NOT accommodate much baggage. It's going to be an exciting assortment of planes, trains, and automobiles! Just wait -- I definitely plan to keep you up to date on my travels.
The other day I had to buy a new trimming tool in preparation for part of my new yard. I spotted this box, but it wasn't what I was looking for. Did you know that Husqvarna and Husqvarna Viking were all part of the same family once upon a time? They split company a while back, and the sewing machine company took on the extra name of Viking!
