Except, we are driving. To Connecticut. It’s just two hours and a bit from here, so it isn’t exactly crossing the ocean with the pigs and the chickens and lord knows what else in the belly of the boat.

It’s still our version of hauling. 

Me, I’m just stuck with “but what do I need to wear?” The weather sucks and it’s supposed to snow and rain and wind the cold and nasty through the middle of next week, which definitely limits my “shoe” options to Uggs outside, socks inside.

Garry wanted to know if he will need to “dress up” which these days, means not wearing his stretchy pants and for me, means wearing clothing that matches.

We have come a long way from our sparkling days of “dressing for the office” when Garry was quite the man of fashion and I didn’t look half-bad either. I did get my eyebrows waxed and Garry assured me that they are the most wonderful eyebrows he has ever seen.

We’ll be away for a few days. It’s been slow here anyway, so I’m sure you’ll all survive without me until next Tuesday. I’ve got stuff scheduled too — and most of it is new and hopefully, funny  —  but I don’t know how much time we will have to comment and chat. I’m expecting a busy weekend.

Meanwhile, no ants in the kitchen this morning. Yay poison!

From our chilly, windy, and soon to be snowing April in New England, here’s to all of you. Hoping before the month is out, we are having weather more like “spring” and less like “winter.”

Happy trails and may you haul and all power to you!

      1. lol. Nope I don’t think so. Daily life with all it’s ups and downs whether it’s weather, financial or just the same ole same ole can have the same effect. When Kelsy takes the kids for a few days and they go down island, I feel like I can finally relax. I’m never “off guard” as it were. When my kids were growing up, I got 4 hours a night, one ear always listening. Nothing much has changed even though they are 10 feet away in a different house, lol. I feel burned out on occasion. Perhaps it’s all the pain, the concern for little ones ever present, hard to say.


    1. We got here — late — and it was nearly a white out until we got to the Connecticut border. At which point it turned to rain. By the time we got HERE, the sun was out. I took pictures, but I didn’t bring the big computer with photoshop, so I’ll have to wait until Tuesday to process them.

  1. Safe travels and have a good time. Mother Nature gifted us with an afternoon of snow showers so the entire landscape is white again. 😦 I haven’t missed dressing up one time since I retired. These days if I dress up it means I have Docker type pants on instead of jeans, and, yes, I have to wear something that matches on the top also. 🙂
