If the cardiologist says “ok,” the Ol’ Curmudgeon and I will drive to Columbia SC on Thursday for Emmy’s graduation ceremony on Friday. There are lots of activities planned, and it will be an exhausting time for us. I worry about the Ol’ Curmudgeon. After 31 years, I love him even more than I did when we married. Don’t want to lose him!
So we will leave on Thursday so we can rest for a day before all the events. Friday will be the Magical Night with PAALS events – graduation, silent auction, dinner, open auction. For people who tire as easily as the Ol’ Curmudgeon and I, this will be a just totally “wipe-out” evening.
On Saturday there are two fairs to choose from to attend: The Lexington Family Days or the Sparkleberry Country Fair. We’ll see how wrecked we are after Friday night. I’m not even sure we’ll be able to get through much past the Friday night dinner.
We may need to bow out of the Saturday events. We will have the drive back to Lawrenceville either on Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning. We may turn around and come home on Saturday, depending on how we are doing. We have the option – we can check out a day early.
So we are packing up. Yes, already. Emmy’s grooming materials are packed in a cosmetics travel container. Just like mine are. Her blankets are being washed and will go with us. Emmy will go to the groomer at 8:30AM tomorrow, and I will continue to brush her within an inch of her life every day we are gone! I won’t pack her travel-kennel until the morning of leaving. The pad that is in it, however, won’t go with us – it needs washing, and I won’t have time to do that ahead of time. I’ll wash and take with us one of her other pads we have around the house.
Leash & cape she will wear. OOPS! have to vacuum off the back seat! Don’t forget the pooper-scooper (SASI)
We’ll need our son to load the dog-proof litter boxes we are donating to PAALS, and I need to take a few other things we are donating to them, also.
Computers, our clothes, our undies, shoes, the Ol’ Curmudgeon’s ditty-bag, my cosmetic bag. Snacks for the trip – no eating at restaurants on the way! Take bread and butter with us, too. Books to read.
I think I have thought of all we will need. Hope so!
