I like countdowns; they help me remain organized in the process of leaving on a trip and generally are the source of good memories – preparing for the numerous road trips taken with my girls. I’ve posted others, counting down to leaving on holiday, going to spend time with a daughter for Christmas, memories from childhood of my mom before vacation and the quirky habits I have now, for which I swear my mother is responsible, though she remembers differently 🙂
This countdown? One week from today I have to be ready to leave for the rolling hills of Kentucky and a week with my youngest brother and his family – an amazing wife and two very special boys. We’re spending Easter together, having been apart since August, when they moved away. So having just started a new trimester of school, I have much work to complete before I go as you never know the reliability of the Internet once you’re gone. The goal is to complete the first two week’s assignments and be partially through the third week before I leave.
Add that on top of the cleaning, laundry, packing, arrangements for pet care, banking, mail, etc. I know what I need to do, and it’ll all happen, it’s just a lot to remember 🙂 So KENTUCKY COUNTDOWN is on!! I’m excited and looking forward to a very effusive group hug upon arrival and many more throughout the week I’m there. Forgot to mention that we’ll celebrate my brother’s birthday together, too. It just gets better!!!
I’m off – the to-do list is calling and it’s now almost 8:00 a.m. No music in this post, but not for lack of looking. There are lists of songs about Kentucky and songs about travel, but remaining focused is the focus so no time to search YouTube today. Blessings to all and send prayers this way for clear thought processes 🙂 Those who know me will be smiling…. Adieu!
