Ten Days to Go

photo 1(11)Ten days until I move to Santa Fe!  My daughter came home from the city to help me pack.  Last night while she was relaxing in my bed I tried on clothes and decided what to take and what to give away.  In and out of my closet with pants that didn’t fit, dresses that I would never wear, and tops that maybe could be resurrected.  It reminded me of when she packed to go to college, except this time I am the one moving.

Then we went through all of the drawers in the bathroom.  Half-opened bottles of bath lotions, ace bandages, boxes of q-tips, hair gels, blush in broken containers.  I had no idea what was in those drawers!  We made good use of what was left.  She rubbed Taoist liniment on my sore muscles and I massaged our feet with the remnants of foot cream.

This morning she went to a yoga class and left me with a list of what needs to be done by her return at 11.   (Writing this blog was not on her list!)  We laugh a lot.  Packing is so much easier when you have company.  We make a good team!

    10 Days ?! We need to pick a date to get together soon! Some evening I think might be best! Maybe during a soccer game so we can watch you root for “Your Team” up close and personal: Soccer – Ellie style 🙂
