Somewhat Excited

(Doesn't take much right now, admittedly.....)

....and fucktons apprehensive.

DECIDED.  I'm driving to Florida (solo) in two weeks to see my daughter as she graduates with her Masters degree.  The ceremony is online... but I made her rent robes so she could take pics for her proud maternal element to hang in her nursing home cell in a few years   ....we could take pics together in front of important college building like life IRL, job hunting is all remote anyway.....  I will be (literally) getting my second vax shot en route, two days before Zoom thingy.  Doesn't really matter if I don't get there on time (because zoom) but I'd rather not risk being stuck somewhere with no wifi and unable to watch....

We're gonna grab a tent and explore a little together after -she's barely had time to look around), and then I'll meander back via uncrowded interesting places.... and hope someone is sitting on my doorstep with a job offer.  Or something.

Thunderboy may burn the house down when I'm gone.  This would not be good.  He may also forget to feed the fish, the cats, himself.... Also not so good.   Totally unlikely to do laundry. Or dishes.  It certainly wasn't great when I went last February for about half the planned timeframe, but he seems to be better about getting to work than he was to college, there is no car for him to total this time ....tell me it will be ok.....?  Bajaboi will be put on supervision duty.... but probably also not wise... just the wisest....

(I've driven to Florida before a couple times, but I've always had a copilot (mostly unused in the driving capacity -I don't passenger well- but available for inane conversation, passing snacks and drinks, finding good radio, interpreting GPS, dealing with making late night motel inquiries.....)

and No, I do not like audio books.

It'll be good to get out on the open road.

Re: Somewhat Excited

I drove across the US (and back) twice solo in my younger days. 
Too old now for a third, but I envy you.
Yes, the home front will be just fine, better than OK.

Re: Somewhat Excited

I'm hoping I don't encounter covid madness or get 2nd vax symptoms that render the drive a nightmare.... wibble.  Flying is pretty cheap, but airports are a hassle and I'd need to rent a car and this was I can take all of the things she wants from the house....

Re: Somewhat Excited

Hopefully the 2nd VAX symptoms will be minor for you.  A sore arm should respond well to Advil, and a headache too.
