We're just hours away now, friends. The paperwork's been signed, the house has been locked up, the laundry detergent's been taken away by our good friends at airport security, and I've tried to do a lot of things today that I won't be able to do tomorrow.
In short, I've:
eaten at Shipley's donuts
taken a nap
had sweet (non-decaf) tea
had a bar of chocolate
ridden an exercise bike for 15 miles
taken a bath
flushed the toilet after doing my business
Wow. I'm going to miss these things. Life will never quite be the same.
