Another day. Another adjustment. Each day I get better and my black eye dissolves. Still it is a task and although I am improving it is not the same as going to get an adjustment just to get adjusted. It takes effort. I see Thai massage in my future while visiting southeast Asia. And yoga. Even if it is me leading a sequence to myself and Shari. I believe that will happen soon.
I started to pack and feel that I will be purchasing items while abroad. I am unwilling to check a bag as is Shari. We both feel certain that we would be able to pack ample clothing into one carry on bag for three weeks. Shari and I are like-minded. We can sustain on one pair of jeans, shoes, a dress and a couple tops. I despise having to carry a large bag to accommodate my needs. I am a moderate type of traveler. I can always purchase stuff along the way.
I am recognizing that my shoes are an issue. I have a pair of sneakers that will work. That is about it. I have a pair of used sandals that gave me shin splints while in Key West. I have a pair of chaco's that are okay but super ugly. And, I want to say that I have gotten blisters from them while they have been in my care. Moreover, there is a pair of crazy expensive sandals that broke six months after purchase. I tried to wear them again. I am unwilling to throw them out. Yet, I know that it is a moot effort. My right foot was in such pain after wearing these shoes that I had to tape my feet to retain structure. I know that these shoes are not an option. I will take the sneakers, the chaco's and possibly the shin splint driven shoes. I can always get rid of them while traveling.
Tomorrow, I will meet the Goddess for coffee, attend a yoga class followed by nidra to heal and eventually dinner with my friend, Andy. He contacted me the other day and mentioned wanting to catch up before I head out of the country. Thankfully, Andy is a foodie and not afraid to spend money on an experience. We have a few ideas of where we want to dine. I think downtown will be the destination.
I see more passport photos in my future and a stop by the bank. To enter Cambodia and Laos, we need an additional photo for the visa application. I will be sporting a black eye due to the car accident. I had hoped to avoid calling more attention to my eye but seems like more photos will be in my future.
I will see sara Jo and the goddess before I take off. Seattle Jean is meeting Shari and I are the airport in Seattle for brunch and I will make dinner for the warrior prince. He's always ensuring that I am properly fed. It's the least I can do.
I am excited for the trip and a little nervous. That flight to Seoul is going to be long and arduous. And, I am unable to take pills as they tend to have the adverse effect on me. Instead of calming me down, my heart break speeds up. Failing to calm. I will charge my ipod and hope for the best. WIne will be involved, too. I definitely know that will occur while flying.
Enjoy the rest of your night. I am off to pack, ponder and reflect~
