Six Days Until The Marathon!
It is a good thing that I do not have an ounce of O.C.D. in me. A very, very good thing. If I had O.C.D. tendencies, I would be able, in the blink of an eye, to tell you that there is only 6 days,13 hours, 3 min and 00 seconds until the race. But seeing as I am not O.C.D. we will not have that discussion.
Seriously, though, we only have two more days until we begin our travels.
Our son, who is a Sr. at MSU (Mississippi State University) has graciously agreed to live at our house for us while we are gone. He is going to babysit the chickens and the cats. The dog is going to the doggie hotel for the 10 days we will be gone.
For those who follow what we will be doing, here is a brief look at the next week or so:
We fly to Connecticut on Wednesday. We stay there through Thursday.
Friday: We drive to Boston. We are going to pick up our daughter who is flying in from Denver to be with us for the remainder of the trip. We then drive to Bethel, Maine to the resort where we will be staying for the rest of the trip.
Saturday: We drive to Bar Harbor, Maine for the race. We have packet pick up to do and we would like to drive the course.
Sunday: We run for 6 hours or so and then drive back to Bethel, Maine.
Monday-Thursday we recuperate in Bethel and play tourist all around Maine.
Friday: We drop our daughter off in Boston and she flies back to Denver. We drive back to Connecticut.
Saturday: We fly home and relieve our son of taking care of the chickens and the cats. Then we collapse! :)
This is the longest vacation my husband and I have ever had in the 28+ years we have been married. We are really looking forward to this. It is going to be busy but a great time!!!
So, really, two more days and the festivities begin!!!
***Thanks Tom for making all of this possible!!! If you were not helping out with the animals we would not be able to do it!***
