Ok. Rehearsal over, this time is the real thing (fingers crossed). I’m once again waiting to embark, and I think I’m actually even more prepared this time. I now have my computer power adapter, which was still sitting in the kitchen when I got back from the airport, and I got a few more of my clothes clean. Most importantly, Saturday was filled with laughter and conversation.
Nextdoor neighbors: (loud laughter)
Aunt Laurel: Are they having more fun than we are?
(We all laugh.)
Aunt Laurel: Louder, laugh louder!
And my sense of adventure has grown. There nothing like a little resistance to increase my resolve; I guess stubbornness has it’s uses.
