The last few days have been extremely busy with preparations to leave. Hopefully, for Drea's sake--we'll get a chance to do some housecleaning before we depart and leave her to the business of house & cat-sitting. Yup, you read it correctly--we are still flying out early Monday morning for our first ever real trip together.
Stu says things and business is 'back to normal' in his section of the city and there has been no terrorist declaration or responsibility claimed for the blasts. I also realized (as I was driving myself to the Travel Clinic at Hall Health later in the morning) that I probably have a greater risk of getting injured while driving around here at home than venturing on the streets of Bangkok. Although we were initially bummed about the news in the morning we eventually came to a rational (and happy) conclusion.
We dropped Sophie off at Yelm yesterday. Even though it was nice to not hop out of bed and go walk the dog first thing in the morning today, I miss her sweet fuzzy face and doggie antics very much! Layla seems to be enjoying Sophie's absence and is definitely reclaiming her princess kitty status.
I have yet *another* list of items/errands today--this is it, we'll celebrate my Dad's 60th (!) birthday this evening and hopefully take it easy on Sunday before our flight.
