That's the cry here at our house.
Last load of laundry. Last sweep of the house for useful travel items. Last look at snow for a week and a half. Last cuddle from the kitties. Last call for bus tweaks.
We've done a lot to the bus in the last few weeks that I haven't chronicled. We'll have lots of pictures of us on the bus as we wend our way south, so I'll mention them as we go.
On a side note, Griffin got a nasty sliver two weeks ago. I thought he was being a little over dramatic as he writhed in pain while I was tending to his foot. (But there was still that small voice that told me there might be something more to it...Momsenses?) 2 days later we we're pleased when a puss bubble caused a small sliver to come out. Thinking that was the end of it, because I could see absolutely nothing more, we moved on with our lives. He stopped complaining and I stopped checking his foot each day for signs of infection.
Today, as he finished his last shower, he called me in to see what was under his band aid. This is what was still in there. It must have been straight in. YUCK
He's now tied for 1st place in the ongoing "Best Sliver" contest.
We saved it in a baggie for Matt to see when he gets home. Wouldn't you?
