Ready... Set...

I arrived in KS just in time to say goodbye to my dear mother.  The funeral was on Wed and I flew home right after.  So now my attention has turned to trip preparations.

Today I packed.  It only took about 4 hours - I'm finally becoming efficient at this task.  We have 2 large suitcases and each one weighs in at 49.2 pounds.  I'm pretty good at knowing exactly how much I can get away with!  The 2 carry-on bags are also pretty heavy but at least they have wheels.   All that's left now are the last minute things - like the laptops.  Hopefully I saved enough room for them.  The challenge: to be sure that the souvenirs don't exceed the space or weight of the consumables that they'll replace in the suitcases.  It's a good thing that jewelry and refrigerator magnets are small and light!

Just one more day to think of anything I missed.  We'll be busy with errands and phone calls.  Then a good night's sleep, up early, and off we go.  First stop - Honolulu (via San Francisco).  We're so ready for some "Island Vibe". 

I woke up this morning thinking about my screenplay.  I'm looking forward to being able to focus on it and incorporate all the new things I've thought of lately.  I have about a page of notes to work from.  I also have a 500+ page book to read (could possibly be writing an Adapted Screenplay from it, if we all like it).  Never a dull moment in the life of writers!

Stay tuned.....  the fun begins on Tuesday!


  1. Have a BLAST! Can't wait to read about it!

  2. Sounds like your life is busy, busy busy! I'll be sure to stay tuned.
