Sort of.  It always takes a couple of days to get into the swing of not working, and not jumping out of bed at six in the morning to get ready for work.  I did manage to doze off again, and could call it a proper sleep in this morning.  Got going slowly, and took a long (1.5 mile) walk with Syd on a new route we've been enjoying.

We're really starting to focus on what needs to be done before we leave on  Wednesday - only two days to get everything ready!  We bought a few things for the trailer - a tiny coffee maker and some kitchen implements.  It came with a lot, but there were a few things that Michael wanted to get.  Tomorrow we start packing in earnest, and cleaning up the house before we go.

Now that we have an Aloha trailer, I've begun to notice tiki stuff everywhere.  Spotted today at K-Mart:

Groan.  No, we did not buy it.  But I bet it looks good when its eyes are lit up!  We're not particularly interested in any sort of theme for our trailer.  We just want it looking good and feeling like home away from home.

I also spotted a cute little trailer parked at the end of the Wal-Mart parking lot.  There's usually one or two rigs parked down there, taking advantage of the free camping.

Camping Wal-Mart style

I was making the rounds of all the places today looking for a permanent coffee filter for our new coffee maker.  No luck - if I don't find one at the last stop on Tuesday we'll just have to get paper filters.  Oh well.

I spent more time in the trailer this afternoon, reading and doing a little bit of artsy stuff.  It's a nice little spot away from the distractions inside the house - especially the computer!  I can watch the neighborhood go by - okay, I mean I can spy on the neighbors!  Our street is pretty sleepy most days.  There was a little girl walking up and down the street today with a toy playing Christmas music.  It sounded like an ice cream truck, so I was really confused until I saw the girl and her toy.  Then it was just eerie.
