Krissie: Farewell to Ohio Tour

That’s Krissie still looking a little sick and depressed, but as Lani said, “wahoo!” Getting to NJ was turning into such a mess that I was going to have Richie drive me down, and then Lani called to say they were putting it off a week, and I burst into tears. Because I can’t stand the thought of being here another week.
But then we came up with me coming out there, and I was able to find an affordable flight with Richie driving me three hours to one airport and Crusie and Lani driving 2 hours to pick me up (the usual airports are a lot closer).
So I’ll get away, and we’ll do a farewell to Ohio Tour and a Come to Goddess meeting and an election night celebration or suicide pact (not really). But we’ll be going to Steak N Shake and Jo-Beth bookstores and Jungle Jim’s and Hobby Lobby and all the usual suspects. I may even see if I can talk someone into taking me to Teresa’s treasure Haven, which is way the hell and gone, but I think they’re safe because I don’t have money to spend.
And I’ll write, because NANOWRIMO begins today, and I don’t care what I write. I’ll write what I want to write and not worry, I’ll keep up with my meds and being good to myself, and I’ll come out the other better and stronger than ever.
I did a tiny bit of sewing yesterday, and I’ll do a bit more today. I’ll pack, and I’ll vote.

I’ll be on the road tomorrow so I may not be able to post — I leave the house around 6 am and don’t get to Crusie’s till around 8 or 9. And it’ll be chaos, and I’ll sleep on an air mattress, and it will be glorious.

And I’m taking my inner Dresden ballerina with me (and I think I need a real one). Angelique. Marguerite. Margot (as in Fonteyn). We’ll see.

  1. She’s not sleeping on an air mattress. She’s sleeping on a Tempurpedic mattress in my old bedroom while I move downstairs to finish clearing out the basement. Jeez.

    This is SO MUCH BETTER. We were only going to have Sunday together and now we have a whole week. We can watch the election together (I bought hard cider, there will be hooting). Krissie will get to go through all the stuff I’m not taking (I’m taking a lot of stuff but leaving at least half of it behind; Krissie says I’m going to need a bigger truck). And we’re not adding to the NJ problems at a time when the state really doens’t need three clueless women wandering their back roads looking for an open gas station.
    It’s going to be fabulous.

    I’m glad things are starting to look up a bit, and I hope that intensifies a thousandfold when you are back together with your sisters. Have fun and travel safe.

    Safe travels, I will be waving to you from Worthington, have the pilot waggle the wings when you circle. On second thought, maybe the pilot shouldn’t do that, it might startle the passengers.
    Go NaNoWriMo!!

  4. You guys forgot about the snow in the mountains on your way across PA! Though if you go I-80, it looks pretty clear.

    This plan sounds so much better than the first one. Hope you guys have a really good time. Krissie, you might have to start looking for your own truck after you pick through Jenny’s stuff! 🙂

  5. Getting the band back together! I agree that this sounds like a much better plan. Especially the part where you get more than one day together (and don’t have to sleep on an air mattress).

    I hope you all have a wonderfully-goddess time together. I’ll be hooting with you on Election Day.

  6. Sounds like a plan, Krissie! Have fun and please, please share as you go along. We all live vicariously here, so don’t abandon us unless it’s absolutely impossible to get online. Oh, and pictures please…lots of pictures! Travel safe, Mes Amies!

    I vote for Margot for your Dresden alter ego’s name. Like Fonteyn and “Queen Margot”, which was a freakin’ awesome movie.
    Have a superb week with the girls!

  8. How do the three of you feel about a detour? Okay, it would be a long, out of the way detour, but the Florida Keys are really nice this time of year.

    I know. It isn’t possible. Maybe some day.

    (-: It sounds great. A change of scenery was an ancient remedy for depression, and if you combine it with modern meds, laughing friendship and hard cider . . . I think you might have a jumpstart to everything!

  10. Lulu says:

    That sounds like a win-win-win if I ever heard of one! Enjoy the time together and the road trip adventures!

  11. Playing with Robena’s theme:

    Happy trails to you, until we meet again.
    Happy trails to you, keep smilin’ until then.
    Who cares about the clouds when we’re together?
    Just sing a song and bring the sunny weather.
    Happy trails to you, ’till we meet again.

    Some trails are happy ones,
    Others are blue.
    It’s the way you ride the trail that counts,
    Here’s a happy one for you.

    ~ Dale Evans Rogers

    Here’s to a happy trail to the three of you no matter what the road brings, you’ll be together. Happy, happy trails to you.

    Interesting that trails is such a close word to trials. Things that make you go hmmm.

    Happy Friday everyone.

    Okay. Inquiring minds want to know:

    Who’s Thelma?
    Who’s Louise?
    And who’s ?????? <—— Gonna need a name.

    Plus: Just what kind of trouble are the three of you going to get yourselves into?
