expectation of happiness

We are almost ready to go… tomorrow I just have to throw Carm’s new suit into the suitcase, grab all the chargers (5!), kiss the dogs and Grace good-bye, then we’ll be out the door and off into the wild blue yonder.

I’m pretty excited. This is like no vacation we’ve ever had, an adventure in eating and seeing new places, and spending time with friends. Seven nights of pampering will be a treat.

Pat, the pet sitter, came over yesterday afternoon to spend two nights while we are at home. This is giving everyone time to get to know each other. Spike is settling down but has periods of weirdness (he just spent 5min on my lap shaking). He seems to know that something is up. He’s too smart/sensitive for his own good. Strangely, Kabira is the one acting most normally.

We’ve had a few good meals together, including last night’s evening with Trudie & Leo.
