2 DAYS!!!!!! I can't believe it!!!

OK this Blog is all about a journey of friendship.... most of you know that I am a member of a scrapbooking community and that I have been looking forward to meeting a friend from this community for a while now. Her name is Veronica, Vern for short... we have been talking on the phone and online for a couple years now and every year she tells me about this really great 3 day scrapbooking event held in a town near her, and every year I joke about coming out to it, well this year I have decided to go!! I'm so excited I can't wait to meet her in person I just can't stand it. I think I am oozing excitement if that is possible.

I will be posting my daily activities and photos of our adventure here so that everyone can see what a great time I'm going to have!

I feel I have already started my journey last week as I began preparations... I bought the plane tickets back on Aug. 23 and got a good deal too. So I guess preparations began back then, however this last week has been the busy time getting ready to go. So far I have been making mental notes of what I need to take and on what I need to buy to take stuff that I need to get for the kitty and household before I go. I got a geocaching Travel Bug back in June and had misplaced it and have been looking for it on and off most of the summer, my goal was to find it and take it with me. Well last night I accomplished this task and have it ready to go along with Don's GPS. Whaa whoo... Another important detail I needed to get taken care of is care for my MIL's colostomy appliance care while I was gone. I change it every 3 or 4 days and I needed to find someone who would be able to take my place and both she and I were comfortable with. I asked my friend Barb who is a RN in the wound clinic if she would do this for me and she agreed and her come to find out she used to teach people right after surgery how to care for them, so we are all really feeling good about this. That is a weight off my shoulders... I took care of my bills for this month so I don't have anything coming due while I'm gone, no worries there. Got my hair cut yesterday and colored this morning. I think I like it! I have located all the pants I wanted to take except for one good pair of black jeans...I know they have to be here somewhere I don't ever remember coming home semi naked! LOL I hope I find them soon! I like those jeans!

The rest of the list that still needs done is....
decide and pack scrapbooking stuff
finish laundry and see what I need to buy to take with me
gather up the stuff I got for Vern.
Pay for my luggage & print boarding passes
the actual putting of stuff in suitcases
see my little nephews before I go
empty all my camera memory cards onto the back up hard drive as I am taking my laptop

That is all I can come up with for now,,, but I'm sure I have other stuff that needs done too!!!
Well off to work away at this list...

More to come later!
