This next week I am going to be in Michigan with my best friend’s family. Merideth and I are more like sisters than we are friends, so I am sure we will get into at least one fight. With that aside, I am excited because we get to go to Mackinac Island and I have never been there before, so this will be a whole new experience, and I am interested to see how things work without cars. I have heard stories, but I finally get to see it with my own eyes. I will get to run around the lake, so that should be fun, too. I mean, not to mention the swimming, softball, trivial pursuit, cards, and s’mores! Whoo-hoo!
I am supposed to be packing right now, but I think I am going to write here, then couch surf for a minute, then run. I also have to sew some things today. I don’t like packing because it means I have to go away, but it has to be done. Eight days is a long time to be gone. I have never been gone for more than six or (rarely) seven days at stretch, which is enough time to leave Bec struggling with all the pets by herself. I think she likes her alone-time, though, so it is a good trade-off. Pets and alone-time. I suppose when I get back she will have done some home improvement like she usually does.
