November Goers....Already Here!

The time has come, only two more sleeps. The suitcase sits just about ready while my mind is racing with last minute details... do I have everything I need? Is it going to be everything everyone says it's going to be? What sort of experiences am I in for? What's the weather going to be like for me? I will surely report back with a full trip report. Cheers....Happy Halloween to all :)

Next week at this time I will be in a pool with a swim up bar, sipping on dirty bananas.

I fly November 21st but as of today Jamaica is still here - my yardies leave on Tuesday and I follow just weeks later. I have mixed feelings - still so much to do, so many people to see - getting all the ducks in a row for a 2 month sojourn I do not get a day off until I get on that plane in San Francisco at 10:00pm...

...and while the "pile" has started and the myriad of boxes have been arriving for the past 2 weeks the actual packing will not take place till the night of the 20th/morning of the 21st...I'm a professional traveler and that's just the way I do things - but I'm already eyeing the closet...the party outfits to take (or not), the new sundress with the tag still on - so while the suitcase isn't out the mind is still working overtime -

Hard drives are getting prepared - one with work I'll need with me to keep up with from home - one with downloaded videos and TV shows should the move strike me to "veg out in front of the tube" (The tube being a lap top) - and one with our music.

Sitting in the pile are all the new housewares I'm bringing down for my new house - as well as "discarded" items from my renovated kitchen that will find their new home in Negril. Also in the pile sits a larger stack of books than usual - my reading list is ambitious and we'll see what I get thorugh in the end.

It's Halloween and the entire 5 trick or treaters we get have been steadily picking through the "toys" we pick up during the course of the work we do - remainders come down with us to JA to be handed out at the Out of Town Pastry annual Christmas Party for the Negril kids in December.

So while the eye is on the prize the head is in the present - long days and hours of preparation and relentless work until we plop ourselves on that plane. Then it's the big AHHHHHHHHHHHH.
