Well, I leave for Bruté two Thursdays from now. OUCH! Where did the time go? I look around my room and it makes me upset, because even though I have been packing and packing, I am getting no where. I work this weekend on day shifts, so hopefully, when I am done each day, I will come home and finish packing…hmmm. I keep telling myself that. When you get home tonight from work, you are going to finish packing your little items, clear your desk totally off, and start packing your clothes. Just leaving the necessary things out for you to wear until then. And then each night when I get home, I see my bed piled high with things I tried to pack that morning, and I sit them in the floor, fold down the covers, say my prayers and fall fast asleep. Well, I wish it was that easy. What actually happens is each night after I get home I do the afore mentioned things, except the falling asleep part, that isn’t quite down pat yet. You see, above the side of my bed, I have a markerboard with a calendar that I used during High school, so I could see what I needed to do that day. Now, it is my packing board, and I have 40+ things written on it, to not forget. And then each night as I lay there, I think about those things and add more. AHHHHHH!
My cat Annie has become my little packing assistant, as she goes around with me and lays on top of my papers and such on my desk, just watching me as I pack things up. Then when she feels I need to rest she will jump down and rub against my legs until I pick her up and either rub her belly, or carry her around the room rocking her to the music. She and I both love classical music, and whenever I play it on my stereos, my trumpet, piano, organ… She finds me and sits right next to it enjoying it. She real seems to like the bass sounds on a couple of Mozart’s pieces as well as she purrs with them.
Well, the dryer calls me as my work clothes are done, so I better go and finish getting ready for work. If you’re in the neighborhood of the DQ Grill & Chill. COme stop by and say hi, we’d love to hear from you!
