I dropped The Pip off at the vet's office where she will be staying while we are gone. I'm paying a little extra for her to have one-on-one time with someone every other day. Admittedly, I got a little teary-eyed when I was thinking about dropping her off, but she was happy as a lark and didn't even look back. It's also been nice to have an evening without her so I can get some packing done and some things straightened up around the house.
As always, Jeff will be keeping an eye on things at the house and also my sweet friend Pat and her husband Dave will be checking in on things for me as well. I've got my fingers crossed that Dave will mow the grass for me before I get home but I'm doubtful that will happen. I am certain, however, that the grass will need mowing by the time I get home because it's already starting to grow and I can only imagine how dreadful it will be upon my return.
It's doubtful I will write tomorrow. We don't land in Honolulu until 9:00 p.m. local time which is, I think, midnight at home. We will spend 17 hours of our day traveling. Here's to hoping the travel time will be worth it.
In the meantime, I would ask that you remember us in your prayers for safe travel, good attitudes, and a fun time. Aloha!
