I guess we are still de-stressing. Or maybe it’s just me. After yesterday, I’m exhausted. I just can’t seem to get rested up. Then again other than worrying about the Doctor’s visit I have nothing to stress about. And today it’s just that adrenalin let-down that comes after you worried about something for no good reason. I don’t know. It seems government officials and doctors scare the bejeezus out of me. Has always been that way; I’d like to think it will change but I’m not so sure. I thought that working for the Forest Service might help; and in fact I wasn’t stressed at all going to get licenses yesterday (Bored… yeah. But not stressed!)
We laid out plans for the next month. they had been floating around in our brain for a few weeks, so it was just a matter of saying, “this is the plan.” That is the nice thing about my morning ritual. I usually rise before Peg; and then I spend an hour, or two, sometimes three reading, writing, thinking about THINGS and IDEAS, not so much people. And when I’m done we get started on our day. By then Peg is awake and hungry and it’s off to the metaphorical races!
We’ll spend a couple weeks at Thomson IL when we leave here — reservations in hand. Then to Central Southern IL for a couple weeks (a week each at two locations). That’s far enough in advance to think now. When the time comes and we actually LEAVE Illinois we have three locations we are considering stopping at before reaching New Orleans. Over the next month we’ll suss out a plan of attack that will get us to New Orleans before December 3.
Our daughter is considering visiting from Dec. 3 through the 13th — or something like that — and that period is sort of roughed out without reservations. We wanted to spend some time at Bayou Segrette SP, across the river from NOLA — figuring out how long to spend on the journey TO the area and how long to spend IN the area are in the air — we want to see how we enjoy the trip. Neither of us has camped in Mississippi — if we enjoy we’ll stay longer. We can always come back to NOLA if we aren’t ready to leave when Kathryn arrives.
At this point I think it safe to say… we are Texas bound. The plan is to spend time together with her in LA and then bop over to Galveston/Houston for time with the rest of her Texas family. It all sounds wonderful.
That’s about as much as I feel like saying today. Thanks for stopping by and I’ll talk with you tomorrow. 🙂
