Decorations to store and candles to douse.
Yep, we're getting ready to head back to South Carolina for TWO months on Monday. Goodbye gray snow and slushy puddles, hello blue skies and sandy beaches. And best of all, my winter wardrobe is staying here in New York! (Mom: "Well, almost all of his wardrobe...")
Mica is staying here with a housesitter—at almost 20 years old, Mom felt Mica was too set in his ways to handle air travel. Plus get this - in order to take me and Mica on our flight, Mom was going to have to buy another seat on the flight for $337, PLUS $100 for Mica to travel under that empty seat and $100 for me to travel under Mom's seat. Now remember - Mica weighs a little less than 6 pounds! If Mom was carrying a purse and a carry-on bag on board, she would be charged $0. But because there's a pet inside, the airlines can gouge you -- unbelievable!
So anyhow, we've just got two days to clear away all our Christmas stuff and pack up a suitcase for our trip south. You may not hear much from us until next week, but hopefully, you're all sleeping off your food comas! I had about 200 special chicken and rice popovers, some baa-baas, a whole can of Merrick's Venison Holiday Dinner, some delicious roast pork, and some tennis ball fuzz.
Ahhhh, I love Christmas!
