Two Days To Go

OMG!!! trying to figure out this techi stuff is driving me nuts but that's okay.  It's a challenge that's for sure.  I'm spoiled by my PC at work because it's dumbed down so I can do just about anything on it blindfolded.

I will master it though.  I won't give up.

Anyway this is my newest post.  I sent one on Friday but do you think I can find it.  Of couse not.

Friday at work was awesome.  Knowing it was my last day made it virtually stress free.  My teammates celebrated by B'day as I will be in Venice on my real birthday, so cool.

Yesterday was so nice having family over for a BBQ to celebrate not just my B'day but the kid's purchase of her condo.  I'm so proud of her.

Yesterday I went to see it and I love it.

Today was basically move everything from the top floor to the basement so the floors in the upstairs can get done.  Then off to Ikea.  By the way, their meatballs are not gluten-free!!!!!

Packing tomorrow and last minute laundry.......................very tired now and very relaxed........................

Preparation for the Trip

Okay now please be patient because I'm a novice at this.

I wanted to set up my blog before we left for our trip.  By we I mean the hubby, the kid and me.

Italy is our destination of choice and we're all very excited.

The kid has a lot on her plate right now what with the trip and just purchasing her own home.  Also, we are having new flooring put in in the midst of packing, cleaning, dropping off Sam (our beautiful lab-border collie mix).

One more day at the office but lots of work to do at home.

I will post all the gory details of our crazy preparation for the trip, etc. and when I return, all the details of our vacation,  including as much information about the "gluten-free" availability in Italy.  I've been researching and they are far more knowledgeable about Celiac disease than we are here in North America.  I can't wait to eat bread that (apparently) tastes like real  bread and dishes that I can't normally have.

I'll gather all the infomation I can and post it on my blog.

Also, any ideas on how to make my trip easier would be greatly appreciated.

I'll keep you updated.
