We're leaving on Friday, and despite the fact that we're in kind of good shape, we're still nervous about getting everything done so to make what is going to be a very action-packed roadtrip as pleasant as possible.
How action-packed, you ask? Remember when I said about Jason?
We leave Philadelphia.

In addition to all that, we'll be visiting family, friends, national monuments, and going to a wedding.
It's a lot to prepare for. I've met my deadlines, did an awesome book event in Harleysville Books, we've taken the car in for a tune-up, we've given our housesitter, henceforth to be known as Clyde, a tour of the house and several thousand warnings about the extreme badness that is Tilda, we've mourned the fact that our tomatoes are probably all going to ripen in the couple of weeks that we're away, made hotel reservations, collected audiobooks to listen to...
All that's left to do is
- Cleaning the house
- Cleaning Tali
- Trimming Tilda's claws
- Grocery shopping for healthy extended roadtrip food so that we won't only eat Pizzaria Pretzel Combos the entire time
- ONE LAST LOCAL EVENT IN SURF CITY, NJ
