Okay, I'm overwhelmed. That's why I'm sitting here instead of packing. It's called avoidance and I'm knee-deep in it. I've been following the 10-day weather for our port cities and it seems this time of year is transitional -- most of the day time highs will be in the mid-sixties w/ lows in the 40s. So maybe that means I should just pack everything?
One thing is for sure: I NEED TO CLEAN OUT MY CLOSET!! There's a lot of stuff I never wear in there. Since I retired I tend to wear the same things; I dress for comfort. Who am I kidding? I dressed for comfort when I taught, too. Focus, Kathy, FOCUS!
Last night the baby joined us for dinner while her mother went to the gym. She was a whirling dervish alternately eating bow tie macaroni and climbing all over her chair. At one point she picked up a dinner roll, put it to her ear, and said, "I hear waves, Poppy. Listen." Richard and I can't remember what we ate. Or if we ate. We told her she needed to sit on her chair -- several times -- and said if she didn't she'd have to do a 'time out.' She said happily, "Okay!" and ran to the time out spot, from where she smiled and waved to me and called, "Look, Kath, I'm in time out!" Richard looked at me; I at him, and he went and got her.
I want to say hello and get well really soon to Maggie at Postcards . Stop by her blog and give a wave if you can.
Okay, ENOUGH! Back to the closet/suitcase. Or maybe I'll make myself a cup of tea and some brownies...Those windows could use cleaning...
