Up, Up and Away…

Tomorrow I am off, up into the wild blue yonder. Anyone actually know what a yonder is? Tomorrow I head to Colorado to hang with my kid for a week. We’ve got lots of plans, mostly involving buying underwear (b/c she’s too shy to even tell her dad that she’s grown out of her bras) and having one too many frappuccinos at Starbucks, we will eat at our favorite pasta place and she will try to drag me downhill skiing (I love downhill skiing but am very rusty).

I have not even started packing clothes yet. But I did gather papers and files for my briefcase, I’ve got almost every password I’ve ever used, I have the phone numbers of almost every friend I have there, I have several web client files and an active file for a real estate deal I’m doing right now.

I have made some piles of things to shove in my luggage, but am completely at a loss for what clothes to bring. I know damn well what March in Colorado is like, it’s wet; it’s cold but not always, it might snow or it might be hot. But still, the concept of putting a coat, and a sweater, and a long sleeve shirt in my bag feels really weird. Second nature at this point would be to throw a bikini, a couple pairs of shorts and a couple t-shirts in a bag and call it a day. But if I do that all it will mean is that I will be clothes shopping by Tuesday. So I will do the weird thing and dig out some closed-toe shoes and find that old LL Bean fleece jacket I have and grab those never-worn bluejeans from the drawer.

I’m going to miss the kitties, the dog and the husbandito. I’m also going to miss the friends I talk with every day here. It will feel really odd not to check in every day with them. But it will be good to have a change of scenery.

In celebration of the fact that I’m heading to one of the whitest parts of the U.S. I leave you with a link to a blog which cracks me up. It’s called Stuff White People Like. And it kills me every time I read it. Enjoy.

    Have a wonderful visit with your daughter. I will be in the neighborhood (SM) toward the end of April so I will give you a call. Maybe we can get together and you can tell me all about your visit.
    Take care

    Hey Cat – So far so good. She’s doing well.

    Let’s definitely get together when you come to Cancun. Email me when it gets closer and we can set up a time to hang out.
