Looking back on previous Big Trips, I tend to hit this point quite regularly. It's time to slow it down. No seriously, I actually want the calendar to stop moving so quickly.
I think it occurred to me yesterday like hitting a brick wall, that It's Coming. This trip, theoretical for so many years, and actual for over 6 months now, is about to happen in 7 weeks. Yesterday at the hair salon, I made my next appointment, strategically planned so that I get a cut again right before I go. That means two more cuts till I leave. Yikes.
And between than and now I have Christmas off, New Year's off, and then two long weekends on the road for Morrissey shows. Before I know it, those will be over and I'll be two weeks from going to Africa.
Gulp. Going to Africa!
In the progress department, the clothes I exchanged all fit, so I am completely outfitted for the trip now, tops and bottoms. The new polarized sunglasses rock (I may never drive without them again!). I just really need to spend more time taking photos. A lot more time. Soon!
Merry Christmas all!
