little review

Poem for Tuesday

The day before vacation always makes me need a vacation. Did many many laundries, had lunch with perkypaduan who parked her watermelon and beer in my fridge and reassured the cats that yes, she will return as soon as we are gone, folded laundries while watching half of Brokeback Mountain since kids were busy playing with friends, bought shampoo, caught up on correspondence that absolutely had to be attended to before leaving, tried to post final articles to TrekToday, discovered that the database was down again, mailed articles off to editor. Packed, did one more emergency laundry of boys' underwear, met with a videographer about son's Bar Mitzvah, got a new portable 40GB hard drive and copied stuff onto it, had dinner with parents, organized more stuff, told son that he could not take 11 stuffed penguins on trip, consoled 10 penguins not coming on trip, discovered that shorts from 1991 really truly no longer fit and should be given away, shaved thighs for first time this season in anticipation of wearing bathing suit for first time this season, cleaned out bathtub, cleaned out fridge, made plans to stalk mamadracula in Cincinnati and to see an old friend from Voyager fandom in Memphis, panicked over possible shortage of socks. La!

Our cats know that we are going away. Hence, they are sitting on the suitcases and travel guides. But tomorrow I am betting they will be sitting on perkypaduan and not even thinking about us! We will be in Pittsburgh PA, Columbus OH, Cincinnati OH, Lexington KY, Louisville KY, Memphis TN, Nashville TN, Knoxville TN, Asheville NC, Jacksonville NC and Beaufort NC. Whee!
