Wow- it's almost hard to believe that we are leaving tomorrow for vacation! We planned it way back in June, and it seemed like it was FOREVER in the future then.... and here it is, less than 24 hours until we leave!

I'm just about ready- 2 more loads of laundry and then I can pack clothes! Most everything else is packed already. I have a couple more errands to run, including stopping by the gas station to fill up, and then we are ready! And then I can relax- I've been going nonstop the past 2 days!

Lucky has definitely figured out something's up... I pulled the suitcases out yesterday, and she gave me a look that said "Um, where exactly do you think you're going?". The real kicker was when our neighbor came to get the keys and say hi to Lucky... then she got all clingy and mopey. Now she's laying on the couch, shooting death glares at me whenever I walk past. She is an expert at the whole guilt-trip thing!

The forecast for Maine/New Hampshire/Vermont is calling for rain pretty much the whole time we are there, but I have seen 10-day forecasts change completely, so I'm not getting too upset about it- yet!

I spent 3 hours Monday morning researching places to go and things to see... including quilt and yarn shops! A couple of the yarn shops look like they are just heavenly... they are all programmed in to the GPS and I am looking forward to going to them :)

Thanks for all the comments about my last post! I think Vicki is right- I've been so wrapped up in vacation plans, and I spent a good portion of September either sick or out of town (or sick AND out of town...!) and didn't really get to do much sewing! I'm bringing my sketchbook along with, and I'm really hoping the scenery and the time away from home will bring some inspiration.

I am bringing my knitting with me. I am so close to finishing my sweater! I also have a hat for Hubby to finish, and a scarf for my mother-in-law. I also brought along some sock yarn in case I felt the urge to make socks, too.

I'll be updating my Facebook status and Twittering along the way, but I don't know if I'll have access to a computer to blog. You can follow me on Twitter if you want- just send me a request! I locked my Twitter account after getting several "porno-tweets" :)
