I have made the 1500+ mile trip from Vermont to Florida. There was heavy traffic on the first two days, but Sunday (the longest drive) was clear sailing. I stopped in Georgia and had a brief visit with Mike's daughter and her family.
Thank God for Garmin.
I found out that there has been a lot of rain here in Florida this past summer. I spent some time today hacking back the shrubs gone wild. I took care of the house insurance and FL Comcast (which was way, way easier than what I went through in Vermont). I had the air conditioner serviced. Tomorrow I will look into having the tree guy come out and I need to find someone to take out a bunch of concrete blocks in the back yard that were meant to be a patio, but just serves to irritate me when I see it. Maybe that job will wait until winter.
Maybe the day after that, I will just relax. I don't think I am ready to handle going to the beach though. Mike LOVED the beach and I know it will be hard to go there without him. Maybe that will wait until the winter as well.
I did go to get my hair cut today. That was badly needed. Actually the guy who cuts my hair here in FL said that my hair looked better than he has ever seen it after an extended time in Vermont. Funny because I have been cutting it myself since last spring. He really does a great haircut.
My plan is to leave the Ford here and fly back on Monday. I made an appointment for my next haircut in December. I am anxious about the flight, but glad that I will not be driving that distance again so soon.
