A 2 hour nap
I still have jet lag. Again I wanted to sleep in, but Juergen had to drop the car off to be serviced. So I had to get up at 8am to get Jessica ready for school. I am basically not being given any time to get over this jet lag. It feels like I need to sink or swim! And of course I feel like I'm going to die because I'm so tired. But I got some more plants in the ground. Our green house is full of starts. They either need to be transplanted into bigger pots, or placed in the garden. And if we don't do this work before we go to Italy, these plants will most likely die. So I'm transplanting what I can into the yard. It's raining enough to keep them happy. And Nicole has also been transplanting plants too. And I'm doing laundry. And I'm packing all sorts of stuff, and making lists, and also cleaning. We leave on Friday. I need to finalize everything with the house sitter. And Mickey gets dropped off at the doggie hotel on Thursday night. But I did get a 2 hour nap. And I'm starting to get excited about this trip. The trip to London and America was very busy. We saw so much, and did so much. Now we are going to be staying in an old villa in Tuscany. We basically do not need to go anywhere or do anything for 2 whole weeks. Sure, we may do some day trips. But only if we feel like it. So I'm packing board games, books, puzzles, and art supplies. I plan to cook. And all I really want to do is buy plants for my garden (peppers, onions and tomatoes). Everything else is optional. And as long as the kids can play soccer and swim, I am not sure they will care about doing much.
