It's almost here. Things are all in order. One and a half weeks! Yipes! My only plan for the rest of the time (aside from keeping on losing weight) is to avoid all illness and accident. For that reason, I'll be covered in bubble wrap, lying motionless in bed, having no visitors who've interacted with the public starting Friday. I'm not taking any chances. I'm going all-out girly for this like I haven't done in years. Grew my nails, did the hair, makeup, everything. No hands in the dishpan, careful with the nails. Can't draw cuz the carbon blackens nails and paints and pastels dye them and I'm not wearing polish. So it's Act Like a Lady Week all around. Even though I'll still look like a Vermonter in a Connecticut concert, I'll be a Lady Vermonter.
This is really gonna happen. I don't think I'll really believe it til I'm in it. And one of those things in life that you always wanted to do, but which got put far down on the list because life was more important, will actually happen.
Life is surprising. And when it's good it's very, very good.
