On to the boat!

12 August 2008 | Jackson to Lassalle
What a maddening day - rush rush rush...
Go to the post office & drop off package and change of address - check;
Go to Comcast - return 2 cable boxes and cable modem - check;
Go to Best Buy and return phone and pick up a different one - check;
Get oil changed - check;
Go to CVS check prescriptions - check;
Absentee ballots - these didn't work out - the clerk was never there;
Final laundry, dishes, clean out freezers, frig - Thank you thank you Stephanie for the help this afternoon;
Final wrap-ups water, pipes, power, and plants whew!
We finally got on the road between 6-6:30 and at 6:40 turned around to go back home and pickup the rose that Steph brought me (my favorite - Veteran's Honor), then - back on the road again (spotted some golf balls along our walking course and was tempted to stop again LOL) and a stop at Big Boys in Tecumseh. Dinner reminded me of when Steph was little - you order it you eat it LOL. It was so great of her to pick us up & see us off. She had me in stitches with her tales of language mishaps/blunders throughout dinner and when we got to the boat Penelope and Patrick were waiting for us. Penelope had given me a Sweet Pea character awhile ago that I brought on the boat with me that I had to show them. The theme: "Where in the world is Sweet Pea?" Long day but I loved having my "peeps" there to say adios. We still need to finish unpacking the rest of the stuff that we brought in Steph's car but I think it will have to wait until tomorrow - it's about midnight and time for shuteye... According to QAS Wayne's monitor should be here tomorrow first thing - we'll see - we've been waiting for almost a month for this piece of equip.
