Have you ever been so focused on what you have to do (CLEAN HOUSE, CLEAN LAUNDRY, PACK...) in the next (2) days so that you can do something else (VACATION!) after those days are over --that it seemed those days (which, of course had yet to even happen) had already evaporated?
Well, that is me. And, yes, I the way I am typing is an accurate reflection of my current scattered state!
I want to read all those posts from the last few days (and the futurisitic days) that I'm just not going to get to.
I want to participate in Show and Tell on Wednesday night. Perhaps...who knows.
I want to update the Angel Wall before I leave.
I want to picnic with Comedian at Emma's grave.
I want to find that net.fl.ix movie that I know is around here somewhere and return it before I leave, even though I also know there are no late fees.
I want to pack just enough, but not too much, and remember absolutely everything I should.
*sigh* - we'll just see how much of that comes to be. But, since I clearly won't have time to return comments via email let's have a pro-active VACATION Q and A:
Q: Cara, where are you going?
A: Cape Cod
Q: How long will you be gone?
A: 1 week, I think -- or maybe not (weather report isn't looking so hot...literally)
Q: Why now?
A: The house is free and available now - We go now.
Q: Will you have internet access when you are gone?
A: Nope. (Good thing - like tough love? Bad thing - like forced celibacy? I don't know...yet)
Q: When are you leaving?
A: Thursday. Back on the 25th. Will miss you all terribly and shudder to think at the exponentially bigger number of blog posts awating when we return.
And, yes - I am typing like it is already Wed night and I only have a one more sleep until we depart. It is, isn't it?
CATCH UP FROM THE START!
