A Quick Goodbye

I'm leaving for the airport at 4:30 in the morning.  I have a ton of stuff to do to get ready.  I am dreading this trip like none other so I've procrastinated on getting packed.  Even though this is a bucket list item for me, as 65MD had repeatedly pointed out, the timing could not be worse, IMO.  Losing our dog has hit us both very hard, harder than I think either one of us realized.  I don't want to leave 65MD alone, even though he has assured me that this it totally OK with him.

If you could spare a prayer for us during the next 8 days, I would really appreciate it.

BTW, I'm not going to make under 200 lbs before I leave.  I have a friend that is confident that I'll come back lighter.  I'm hoping to reward her confidence.  I'll check back in sometime after the 12th.


  1. this trip is probably just what you need and 65MD will be fine. processing your grief separately might even help, he wont feel the need to "be strong" and you wont have to worry about worrying him! have a wonderful trip darlin!

    1. Timothy,
      As always you've cut right through the words and seen a truth I didn't. You are right on with that assessment.

  2. Well, you're gone already! But I also was gonna say this will probably be a great distraction for you and some good alone time for MD to deal with the loss in his own way. We'll miss you while you're gone!

  3. Here's hoping you have a wonderful, eye-opening, world changing trip!
