ON THE ROAD AGAIN
The reason I haven’t posted recently is that I had half dozen writing assignments to finish by today. And this morning, renovation work begins at my house. All of the floors are being refinished.
I've been crazed here getting ready for a crew. It's like moving! My entire life is stuffed into closets or packed in the garage, porch, and car.
Later today, my family is taking to the road like a band of gypsies. Instead of a goat, however, we have a large golden retriever in tow.
I‘ve packed a "day" bag for me to take to my "safe haven”, (with work stuff, magazines to read and knitting) and an overnite bag in case the dog and I can't sleep at the house. There's also the dog's mat, treats and a tote filled with plastic Baggies filled with pre-measured dog food in case we need to spend the night elsewhere.
I’ve hauled a week's worth of clothes and exercise gear downstairs to my mom's apartment. Even if I can't stay there I'll be able to go in her back door and fetch the stuff .
Then, there's a big box to put in the car (cell phone and other chargers, mud boots and winter gear – and more dog food --just in case the weather gets bad.
My mom is moving in with a friend and EV is heading for a hotel. His allergies are too bad for him to sleep in a house where work is in progress.
I'm used to being a gypsy, but at the moment I'm a tired gypsy.
I won’t have internet access until we move back in. I’ll try to get a table at Starbucks so I can post your comments and check on how everyone else is doing in Bloglandia.
As we say in Romani, the gyspy language, Achen Devlesa (see you again soon!)
