A week from today we are going to be flying out to Arizona. I am excited to see that land of the sun again. We have all kinds of things planned to do and see. We are staying in Tempe at a hotel where we have been before. We love this place because it is within walking distance of ASU. We walk the campus every day and hit the local stores. But we have other destinations in the area planned to visit also. So, in that way...I am ready.
The problem is: I am not ready physically. Oh, I am ready for the walks. I am ready to climb those mountains. I am ready to hike to the nearby stores. BUT, I am not ready as in packed, cleaned, or gotten Dave, our golden retriever, ready. I have so much to do, all with a week of teaching/coaching to do. Every night this week I have an appointment or assignment to do.
Dave does have his doggy-sitter ready to go. She is amazing and more than ready to spend the week with him. I do have new luggage to pack. I still have to figure out what I am going to wear, what to take to read, what exactly am I going to take with me?
Still, I am VERY ready to get to that warm weather and relaxing atmosphere. Ok, Spring Break, let's hurry and get here!
