Although I have been surrounded by lists over the last few weeks (things-to-do, things-to-buy,things-to-pack etc) I have been feeling somewhat listless today.
I think it may be down to the fact that I am neither here nor there. I may still be psychically in Dublin but my mind and thoughts are already in Germany, sprinting ahead leaving me, my body behind. This state of transientness is quite annoying as I still have several things to-do but sadly all I want to do is go, leave, fly-away.
Thankfully as my patience is running out so is time and I only have two more sleeps (well a sleep and a half since I have to get up at half three on Thursday) to go until I can finally vamoose. And it really is high time since my stash of liquorice is low, well nearly entirely gone.
So I will try to shake my listlessness and tackle my list, cross off an item or two before I hit the hay and reduce sleeps.
I’ve also started a to-do list as my husband and I are going …just for one week to Aruba July 22… celebrating our 50th…Looking just now at all the information involved in checking in at the airport and all the details there…We haven’t been on a plane for years and security is a big deal now… Do you find the same?

not really as I have always been a flyer … it did change after September 11th but has gotten a little more lax again. However YES they do want to know a lot of things.
I’m excited for you – I hope you have a great time in Germany! Say hi to meine verwanten!
will do .. randomly walk up to strangers and say … Diane says hi

Do you know how long its been since I heard someone say ‘vamoose’. My (older) cousins used to say, “Vamoose Papoose”. It just sounded cool at the time. Enjoy your travels!
I love the word but don’t think I have used it in ages … good to reuse old vocabulary

Nice to know I’m not the only one who makes extensive lists, Jensine! Hope your travels are loaded with fun and new things to see (drooling a bit with envy here, can you tell?)!!!
