I hope everything I need is packed. If not, there are stores in Paducah. Getting away from this house is the hardest thing I encounter. Speck sees my travel bag and goes into full panic mode. Actually I did most of the packing last night and put it all in the car but he watches my every move and when I get up and take a shower first thing (instead of vacuuming or starting laundry or other chores), he knows something is up and he will not leave my side. It’s so hard leaving the only family member who really cares if I’m here or not!

And they all decided they’d just stay home and wait for me to get back.
