Road Trip

Monday, May 02, 2016

We are in the final planning for our trip to Galveston, TX. We leave on Sunday, May 9th. It's going to be a short trip, but Tom and I do enjoy a good road trip. He loves to drive, I love to ride along, knit and watch the map. Daisy will be going with us - she loves the rest stops!

I am trying to take things in stride and not get anxious about this. Tom, for as much as he wants to travel, always stresses before a trip. I think it's a little like checking the house to make sure all the lights are off and everything is locked - but he starts thinking about everything that he needs to do a couple weeks in advance.

Tonight Daisy is getting her bath - it's a big job and honestly, I'm stalling. She is always good in the bathtub but once she gets out she turns into Crazy Daisy! At least it's nice enough outside that we can go out before she's 100% dry. Tomorrow will be the shopping trip for all the little things we need. The rest of the week I just plan to do my exercises, take my walks, and live my life. Saturday is time enough to pack - I know what I need to bring.

So, I'd better take care of that bath now! Good night, everyone.

    Enjoy your road trip! We got back recently from a three-weeker, and are heading for Houston in June for a wedding. Hoping to get to the beach in Galveston too. It's fun to go, and then it feels so good to be home again!

    When we used to bathe our dogs, one would shake all over and then run outside and roll in the mud in the grass. ALWAYS. We gave up, and basically hosed them down. They liked that a whole lot better.

    I have a significant other that stresses about going anywhere. I always think, what's the worst that could happen? As long as the heat and electricity is taken care of, you can probably pick up something you forgot.

    I love road trips too, but love driving, and like to go alone!

    I hope you have a magnificent time. Sounds like a fun adventure, and I hope it will be!

    Kathy, What is so wonderful about this blog is that it sounds like you are in such a good place in life. I use to take Sundae to the pet shop that had do-it-yourself equipment to bathe dogs. He loved the attention. My other golden, before Sundae, use to go "wild' after a bath too. Your trip will be wonderful, new sights, new things to do, new everything. And the best part of it, Daisy gets to go to the beach! Ya Hoo! You must take plenty of pics. hugs dear friend, fredie
