Packing Day

Originally this would have been my last day of work before vacation. It’s so hard to believe that I’ve been out now for two weeks. The pain is pretty much gone – I think much of my discomfort was coming from the staples. Basically, what I notice the most is that I just get tired more often and more easily (and after doing not much). I had an appointment with my primary doctor yesterday, and I now have a projected return to work day – October 18th. So I have three weeks left to rest up and get my stamina back.

Today’s main project is getting ready to leave for vacation. The food has been purchased, lists are made – we just need to actually get our clothes packed and then pack the car. There is one main thing before we leave that I’m not looking forward to, and that is dropping the cats off at the boarding place. I feel so bad that I have to leave them there for the week. Some people may think this is crazy, but for me, one of the things I love the most about our future RV lifestyle is that we will be able to travel all over the country, and have the cats with us as we are traveling. Unfortunately, though, right now we are still at the point where we have to rent a place for vacation, and so we have to leave the cats at home.

So anyway, back to today – Harry is on vacation now as well, and so we will be getting stuff organized. Tomorrow I will probably wait and do my first entry from the vacation place!! (Yes, we do have internet there and all the comforts of home.) Be right back Won’t be long now!


  1. enjoy the drive to your vacation spot..your 'fur children' are in good hands!

  2. We are looking forward to following you all on your vacation. Yay!!
    I agree with you on your pets. That is why we travel via RV because we just can't stand leaving our dogs behind. Besides....it cost a bunch to send them to their doggie resort, LOL.

    You all travel safely and enjoy your vacation.

  3. Have a good time! I know what you mean about the kitties..my old cat gets watched by a friend of ours when we go away. He's always fine, but lonely I'm sure!
    You're packing to go...tonight we start packing to leave :-(

  4. I totally get that feeling of guilt for not taking your "fur kids" with you. I hate dropping sammy off at the kennel as well. Seems all he does there is sleep and eat. Poor thing, he misses us so.
    Take care and hope you have a great trip!

  5. I really do understand how you feel about leaving the kitties. We just started bringing ours and we really have enjoyed having them along. It was fun watching them get their first look at the Gulf of Mexico. They actually settled in very well and enjoyed the new sights and smells.

    Hope you get to feeling better soon.
