This morning, I got up at 5:30 and got my shower so I could get dressed before Dick went to work. I went back downstairs to get some more coffee and check the news and a few blogs. I clicked on the TV and who do I see? Matt Lauer telling me that if I have a trip planned to Europe to put the brakes on it......the dollar value has dropped. Great. Do you think he just doesn't want me to go to Italy and instead go see him in New York? Could it be?

Today will be a busy day. I have finished packing my suitcase but still have to finish Dick's. I have some ironing to to do with a broken arm! Notice I didn't say "good" ironing. I need to take Weezie to get a shot so she can stay at her boarder. And at 5 I have a haircut appt. Nothing like waiting till the last minute, huh? I like to live like that.....just ask Dick.

I made red chicken stew yesterday while I packed. So dinner is ready for tonight. Dick is picking us up dinner for tomorrow night after we get back from Boston. Hopefully Julianne will be riding with me to Boston is pick up Gran Gran. I should have everything ready already, so maybe it will be a relaxing evening. Did I say relaxing......You know that won't happen. It couldn't. The weatherman said this morning that we are getting another snow storm Friday night. I love the snow but it is time for spring. The snow is starting to obstruct my view of the outdoors. At least from my recliner in the den.....

I guess that is all I have right now. I will try to post again before the trip....Tootles!

Matt IS telling you to go to New York. We were just there in December and it was wonderful.

Yes, I was watching Matt this morning too when he expounded his wisdom about not traveling to a Euro connected country. What to do but just proceed with the plans and perhaps stretch the budget with picnic lunches. The other day on the Food Network, it looked like the Barefoot Contessa had a great time with her husband with a picnic of bread cheese and wine on the rail of a bridge somewhere in France. I think that could work in Italy too.

Hope you have oddles of fun and bring home lots of pictures and good memories.

Love you, MOM
