Alabama trip coming right up!
This week is almost over and not near all of the things on the plan that needed doing have been done!
Oh, well- SOME have been accomplished, of course, but not all! I at least got the hair-cut out of the way- and got my poodle groomed. Charles got the meadow cut today too... so-I guess you can say it has been a week for getting stuff cut- if nothing else!
The reason I'm in a bit of a tizzy is that we will be going on our trip early next Tuesday! The concert in Atlanta to see Mark Knopfler is Tuesday night, so we must get an early start! Then we will be going on to north Alabama for Charles' family reunion and to visit my brother and SIL also. We will be gone through the weekend...returning on Sunday-if all goes well.
These trips, though seemingly simple enough in the planning, always turn into a hassle for us, with all the little details of planning and things to do before hand. The big thing is in leaving our place here- with all that goes into taking care of the cows...and now the horse; and my little old poodle girl and the cats will have to be cared for, too! Our son is here so he'll have to take over for a few days-not that easy since he works 12 hour shifts at the hospital!
Oh, how I long for a stress-free vacation!
We also have the renovation project going on the house but there is no rush on that...darn good thing, too, because 'rush' is not a speed easily reached these days for us!
As usual, when overwhelmed, I have just about been shut down in my motivation and enthusiasm...my get up and go! I have felt just awful today with a headache that won't quit and achy legs and hips and back! I haven't slept well in several nights so I'm very tired.
I needed to do a little shopping today for a few items of clothes and shoes, but just didn't feel like getting out. Oh well, THAT I won't worry about because I can get by with what I have!
(LOL- After all- I doubt that Mark Knopfler will see me in my old worn shoes!)
OK- I'm trying to think ahead and realize how enjoyable these trips back home always turn out to be! I know we will have fun ...it's just the getting ready to do it that gets me down!
And this is all part of my being so settled into my daily life and having trouble dealing with changes! LOL- I know if we were going to the most exciting place on earth I would still have this same stress level!
:) NOT to imply that Alabama isn't exciting!
