All in

We’re down to our last day at home!

Yesterday was ka-razy, but ended on a fun note with having the Js for a final overnighter before we (and they, on Friday) leave for vacation. The Thriller, in his inimitable, efficient fashion, has the car almost completely packed up and ready to jet:

We had a nice evening with the boys, chatting over dinner, playing Wii, walking down to Uncle Lars and Aunt Helen’s house, and making our own frozen yogurt sundaes:

Back home, then baths and bedtime. By 9 p.m., Grammie had about had it. :-)

Today is busy with a last-minute trip to the store, some laundry, and hopefully some rehearsal time for the Dallas gig this Saturday. Tomorrow at 5:30 a.m., we hit the road for the first leg of the Odyssey, en route to Mississippi to visit Daddy and Kathy.

I remember thinking at Christmastime, June will absolutely never get here. And now here it is: the penultimate day. Am I too worn out to be psyched?

Nah.

    As Departure Day approaches wishin you and The Thriller a day filled with delightful anticipation….that calm feeling you get when the time is near and you know beyond doubt you are ready! Great packing job, I see The Thriller has that special male gene that makes us all spacial geniuses.
    May your road be construction free, your skies blue and the time sharing one another’s presence, precious! Ser bendecido mi querido amigo y conocer su son amados.

      Gracias, mi amigo. ¬°Bendiciones! :-)

      So it must be a man thing. It’s like he put the stuff through a cruncher while retaining the original size of the containers. *scratching head* It’s an optical illusion, I tell ya.

      Arrivederci! I’ll be checking in from the road each day.

    YAAY! I’m sooo excited for your trip & to see y’all!! And I totally get that “spatial exercise” of packing the car. My father was a master of it, and tried to impart that skill to me. As dad would say, “well, we’ll just have to MAKE it fit!” :-)

    Practice for Sat? You don’t need no stinkin’ practice! BTW, I have all the recording session files all set up & ready for you to walk in the door & do your thang! This is gonna be a weekend of a lifetime for me! Can’t wait!!

    XOXOX Safe travels, luv!
