Prep Prep Prep

Its hard to believe that a week from today we will be somewhere up there >destination Italia!  The mental prep is going on now.  I hate the mental prep.  Before this week, we were planning and imagining and dreaming about the adventure.  This pre-week mental prep involves getting our affairs in order here before we leave.  I paid bills tonight, talked to Verizon about a global plan and stewed about what I will really take with me….the decision about shoes seems to be the biggest hurdle.. they really take up the most room.  Also stewing about suitcases…how many suitcases will fit in the car we rented.  The Brother-in Law will be easy…he takes a back pack…. I (and He) will be taking a large suitcase and two smaller carry on suitcases…Gena will do the same, I think.  It certainly won’t be an alfa romeo as we had first glamorized.  Monday, when I actually start putting clothes in the suitcase, I will be conservative *rolling eyes.  I know that I will do laundry the way I did laundry last time…in the shower with the clothes on the floor with my feet being the agitator.  Gena is bringing laundry detergent.  Haven’t decided if I will just take old underwear and throw it away each day the way we did in Ecuador.  Mildly concerned about the fire shooting from the ground in Iceland…if we get there, can we get home?  Jenny will be checking on the cats every few days…days away from my babies with no Carmen.  Justin is doing my hair Friday – something I can style without a hairdryer or at least a motel hair dryer.  Not enough European electric adapters to waste on a hair dryer…. Ya…I hate the mental prep.

Until next time…..

  1. I can’t even tell you how much the throwing away of underwear amused me! So much easier. I can’t wait to hear about it and see the pictures.


  2. Wouldn’t that be an incredible trip Ghog


  3. Instead of underwear, just buy Depends when you get there. If you’re feeling brave, lose the underwear completely. Do you think that Julius Caesar wore underwear? Do you think Leonardo Da Vinci wore underwear? Why do you think Mona Lisa was smiling? It was the freedom.

    Have some Gelato for me and a nice time.

    Ever think about going for like six or eight weeks and driving from Sicily to the Swiss border?


  4. I forgot to check the notify box. So I am doing it now.


  5. Oh, I am so excited for you! I just know that this will be an extraordinary trip for you. Try not to sweat it. It will all come together. I love the idea of throwing away your underwear! 😀 Comfy shoes! It will be wonderful! And you deserve it!
