Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

Let the adventuring begin!


Katie here. Surprise! You didn’t think you’d hear from me again so soon did you! Well mama says she’s tired and if I want to tell you about our adventures I’m just going to have to write it myself. Plus she says we haven’t even really gotten to the real adventure yet so I should just go lie down.

Right. Like a princess is going to take a nap in the middle of an adventure.

So anyway, this morning mama didn’t argue with me when I got her up at 4:30. She said she had packing to do. Packing? I started getting nervous. Usually when they get the suitcases out I end up at doggie camp. It’s not like she pulled my tent up from the basement or anything. Oh no. These were suitcases!

But it turns out that I got to go! At least I think so. I was kind of worried at the beginning, figuring she was going to drop me off at camp and take off on me. But so far so good. Tonight mama says we’re in Kentucky.

Checking out tomorrow's route mama!

I don’t know what a “Tucky” is….but it comes with two beds and I get to decide which one I’m sleeping on. I thought I’d sleep on the one over there, but then this one over here looked good, and now I can’t decide. I guess I’ll sleep on both of them.

I don’t know where we’re going next, but if it’s as good as “Tucky,” then I’m in.

See you tomorrow…

Your tour gal Katie.

I think we both need a nap!

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  5. Oh, boy, Katie! Your own double beds in the hotel! Although I think that’s not usually what they mean by double beds. Whenever I’ve stayed in hotels with my dogs, I’ve done my best to get a room with 2 beds, although in practice the dogs have usually wanted to sleep with me anyway, so a K is sometimes the better option. You decide, Katie.


  6. Dallas LOVES to travel … and he’s excellent at it! Here’s hoping Katie enjoys it as much as he does. He especially loves strutting through a hotel lobby and hearing everyone oooh and aah over him!! Be safe, and have fun!!


  7. Oh Katie, you’re gonna love traveling, just like your mama!! 🙂
