Packing

What, no pictures tonight? Nope. Just me, running around like a chicken trying to finish up packing for my "big trip" tomorrow. I am FINALLY beginning to get a little bit excited, even though when I left Mom tonight she was trying hard not to cry. I saw her standing in the window watching me until I was out of sight. I am truly not too worried about her. I have a trusted friend who will check on her every day and I have tried to get her a full schedule during my absence. Church on Sundays, bunco this Tuesday, Bible study on Tuesdays and Thursdays, choir practice Thursday night, Wal-Mart with Gail on Thursday, doggy Dr. next Monday, you get the picture.

Finally got an ink cartridge that fits this cheap printer (now I know why it was cheap, the ink is NOT). Checked in online and printed out what seemed like reams of paperwork just to get on a plane. I had forgotten about a FOUR hour layover in New York. Heck, I should go see a play while I wait, lol.

I thought I did not possess enough clothes to pack for 10 days. Oops, guess I do. Can't even tell I packed any. Of course I'm packing mostly slacks and I rarely wear them. I wear skirt suits and dresses almost every day of my life, but guess I've been buying pants whether I can wear them or not. Well, hey, you never know when you might need them.

Brother Wayne emailed me the rental car agreement, I guess so I would know how much my part is to pay him. Not too bad for a Mercedes. I was impressed until he told me that a Mercedes is just a "standard" car in Germany. Okay, I can still be impressed if I want to.

Don't know if I will get an opportunity to post while I am away, but am taking my Dell "mini 9" toy with me to at least keep a journal of my expedition. I hope we get to see lots of places as I am sure I will never get to return there again. Heck, I never thought I'd get to go the first time.
Will have lots of pictures upon my return, so you all keep me in you prayers that I will return home safely.

Until then,
Polly
