and away we go!

so today . . . i've spent the day getting ready to go north for christmas! i am so excited!!

our pups are not so excited. somehow they seem to know, even before we get out the suitcases, that we are going. (i'm sure they understand us when we are talking to each other.) this was milo's response when i began gathering clothes to pack . . .
now before you think, "well of course he knows you are leaving--you are getting stuff ready to go," the sad truth is that it is not an uncommon circumstance for him to find a stack of tops or pants laying on the bed. somehow, when i do laundry, i seem to lose interest between the folding stage and the putting away stage . . .

anyway, it is now 10:07 p.m. and of course i am not ready to go. once again, rollie is. he is tucked snugly in bed racking up zzzzzzzz's so that he will be ready for the long drive tomorrow. he will wake up about 3:00 a.m. and be ready to go.

diandra decided that she would just stay awake until we leave. her thinking is that if she goes to bed tonight, she will get just enough sleep that she won't be able to sleep in the car. and how frustrating would that be, to be wide awake in a dark car at 4:00 a.m.?!?!

i am heading for the shower. and then i will finish packing (i am almost done,) pick up the last few things lying cluttered about, and maybe vacuum. and then sleep . . . of course, i will sleep in the recliner, in my clothes, so that when rollie is ready to go he can wake me up and i can walk zombie-like to the car and resume my slumber.

i have no problem sleeping in the car . . .
