Used to be a ‘new’ Jersey Girl   : now A Colorado Girl

Next week this time

I’m having a hard time wrapping my brain around the fact that this time next week we’ll be 3/4 of the way through the huge state of Nebraska en route to the cabin. I am so not ready! Somehow it just seems off and way too soon since we’ve been trekking to the cabin in September for the past three years.

There is a pile of stuff on the bed in the spare room just waiting to be loaded but there seems like so much still to do.

The kitty beds have been washed and ready to pop into their crates.

Alex got a bath this weekend (and looks great I might add) and the girls will get theirs at the groomers on Wednesday.

The roof rack and pod were put on the truck this weekend and Rick vacuumed and cleaned it. It also had a check up, new spark plugs, lube & oil change, new front shocks (which we will need on those washboarded dirt roads that lead to the cabin) and a few things I can’t remember now so it should be good to go. Big Red has never failed us but she is getting up there in years and miles.

Our neighbors who look after the cabin for us went over this past weekend and have found no sign of pack rats (and here) this time. Thanks goodness. I don’t want to have to fumigate the cabin again! Pesky vermin!

I have so much to do before we go yet I have trouble getting started. I just need to focus on one thing at a time.

Welcome, I'm Lynne. You know me better as a 'new' Jersey Girl. But now I've moved back to my 'home' state and I am living in NoCo (Northern Colorado).This blog will be about my thoughts, good food, and of course, dogs.
