Today will be a busy day for us. As we have only two days left here, we have much to do to prepare to leave. I think I am resigned to leaving and therefore, looking ahead to being home.
We do so love our little home in Upstate NY. And our dear and precious friends. We will be so happy to see everyone. My buddy, Linda, is making a hair appointment for me so that I will look spiffy soon after my arrival at home. She and her hubby, Jason, will pick us up at the airport on Wednesday afternoon. I am so anxious to see them again. Although we have talked on the phone and emailed, it's not the same as seeing them face to face.
Church was hard for me yesterday. I really didn't expect it would be that hard to leave. Pastor Bob had a really good sermon about doubt. It was one of those sermons that are full of hope and the joy of being a Christian. It was great, but as we drove away, I felt so very sad. I will miss the fellowship of Women of Spirit and the ladies I have met there.
But forging ahead, I am renewed and anxious to meet the adventures that await me in the coming months. I will be writing more about some of them later.
After we finish today's tasks, we plan to meet Gretchen for dinner. We are going to "the strip" one last time to visit the conservatory at the Bellagio and have dinner at the Venetian. Gretchen is off work today and we are delighted to be able to spend this evening with her.
Tomorrow we will finish our cleaning of the condo and go to Brian and Gretchen's to sleep. And then it is up, up and AWAY to Marion.
See you in New York.
