I Need to Slooooow Down?

I knew I had a hectic, over-scheduled, few months …

But I think it’s gotten a little ridiculous.

Today is my fourth consecutive day home and I’m spending it packing to leave.

The four days I’ve been in town have been filled with “must do’s.”

I saw my orthopedic surgeon yesterday morning and shamelessly begged him not to hurt me.

He went easy on me.

I followed that appointment up with a much needed treatment with Paul Newman.

He was pretty gentle with me too.

Did you know I can’t think, let alone talk, when Paul Newman massages my always hurting neck?

(My neck muscles do a lot of the work for my bum arm.)

I become this puppy ….


It’s kind of embarrassing, actually.

I probably should be more embarrassed, but I think Paul Newman is used to me.

I literally lose all thought mid-sentence and go into some type of instantaneous Neck Rubbing Coma.

Tomorrow will be a very long travel day as I head north to Canada.

Have I mentioned (a billion times?) how much I hate the traveling part of traveling?


I’m going to try my hardest not to travel at all from Thanksgiving through March.

I am very excited, however, for my first visit to Canada.

It will be a quick three day trip, but I’ll be making notes for my return in a few weeks.

(I hope to have a more leisurely visit when I pick up the puppy in a few weeks.)

My arm is “done” from my North Carolina/Georgia/Texas trip, so I’m doing everything I can to go easy on it during my Canada trip.

I’m taking one small rolling carry-on bag, my camera, and only two lenses.

While I’m up north, I’ll be having a few adventures with my new Canadian friends and their gigantic dogs.

They’ve scheduled a very busy weekend for my visit.

Some of our plans are weather dependent, but I’ll be sure to update via Twitter, Instagram and Facebook whenever I can.

I’m not bringing my laptop (in the interest of my arm), so I might not have a blog update regarding the Canada trip until Tuesday.

I’m sure Canada will be a great adventure.

At the same time, I’m really happy I’ll be in town for two full weeks after the trip.

      Ha ha!
      You sound exactly like Paul Newman.
      He’s very skeptical too.
      The 3 states in 9 nine days trip nearly killed me though …

      I can pretty much guarantee I’ll be taking a lot of those! : )
