Maribou is fixin’ to go of galavanting somewhere for a couple of weeks. This means that I will be at home not galavanting somewhere for a couple of weeks.
And this usually plays out like this… Week One: Oh, it’s nice to do whatever I want and leave my cds on the passenger seat in the car. Week Two: Oh, I have stopped sleeping and the cats want to know where she is and I have to tell them I don’t know I don’t know I don’t know.
But the first week is pretty cool.
As such, this weekend will be devoted to doing the last little things that have to be done before something like this takes place. All of the chores and errands that she’s in charge of have to be set up so I can do them. Go out to the various grocery stores that have the travel-sized stuff that she prefers and get the little travel things that make the trip easy. Kleenex, gum, fruit roll-ups. Do the laundry of the stuff from the last week but also any clothing that we need to dig out of the winter stuff for just in case it’s cold there. (Or just cold in the first hour of morning or after the sun goes down.)
And, around all that, the usual stuff that has to get done. The trip to PetSmart and the trip for groceries and the game night climbing on Sunday and whathaveyou. The last normal weekend before the world gets turned topsy-turvy.
So… what’s on your docket?
