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.
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.
