At my appointment today with the ENT, who is now my new BFF, my middle ear was pronounced all clear for take off! Whew. That is a relief with a capital R. Thanks for all the ear love you sent my way! I've sort of been doing my pre-travel piddle. Which is where I walk from room to room mumbling to myself. It's 1900 hours and I STILL haven't packed a single pair of underpants, much less anything else.
My Merida travel journal is ready though and my little plastic art box is packed! I made this journal with a combination of paper and fabric. The fabric was kindly sent to me by Teesha so I could see the quality of Spoonflower printing/fabric. She has her journal pages turned into fabric there. How cool is that? I doubt she thought I'd make something out of it. How rude of me! I tried to use something else but I couldn't resist.
After I left Vladimir's office (we're on a first name basis now), my good fortune continued. When I went to check in online I saw a little sign that instructed me to upgrade to First Class for a mere $69 buckeroos more. So I did! Holy crappoli! I've never been in a First Class seat in my life. I hope it comes with an instruction booklet so I'll know What Not To Do.
To all of the enthusiastic and delightful boys and girls in REMAINS OF THE DAY I'll still be with you. I'll just be a couple thousand miles southeast in Yucatan where the current humidity is 100% Have laptop will travel. Will blog, and travel journal, and consume tropical beverages, and turn 47 while I'm away!
