The Day Before a Trip

The day before a trip can never be simple for me. Something always happens. We are getting ready for a trip to Miami with my family. We go every year for my mom's birthday. Beyond worrying about a major tropical storm that is apparently headed our way (and that I am praying, not just for my trip because I'm not completely self-centered, that it will veer off into the sea and not hit Louisiana), this morning the refrigerator broke. It seemed to not be cooling a few days ago and this morning the milk was bad. Of course I went food shopping yesterday to pick up a few things that we needed before we went away for the long weekend. They couldn't fix it until later in the week (huh?!) and we're not back for a bit so we now have a refrigerator from a vacant apartment in the hallway of our apartment that they will take away once they fix ours. This is because they couldn't get our huge fridge out of my apartment (they even took the doors off) so I have no clue what will happen if they can't fix it and they have to take it out somehow.

Tonight I'm having dinner at Artisanal with a dear friend and then going home to finish packing. I cannot even begin to explain how happy I am to be taking this trip. Everyone will be there including Palomita!

I'll be posting as often as I can while I'm gone. I hope everyone has a wonderful long weekend (I cannot believe that this is the official end of summer!)

I leave you with this for today...
