It’s our final day in our long countdown. Still a ton to do, but the end is here and we HAVE to wrap it up!
We’ve been having such fun the last two weeks saying ‘so long’ to many of our friends. Probably a bit too much eating out and definitely more alcohol than we’re used to, but so much fun sharing our plans. We are hoping to see many of you soon in the EU!!!
Since the buyers of our house are putting in hardwood floors, our 2-year old carpet was up for grabs, so instead of having it go to the landfill, we’ve offered it to a good friend who can re-install it in his house. Hoping it works out successfully. Accordingly, we’re planning our last night in California at the local Hilton…
Postscript—since I didn’t get this posted yesterday…
We were at the house wrapping things up until 10 pm last night. HUGE thanks go out to our ever-faithful Mario, my daughter Jessica, Lawrence and VL for rescuing us with their van, Al (who inherited the carpet), Brian (who orchestrated the carpet removal), and my dear husband.
When we were ready to pull out of the driveway, our good friends Mike and Donata surprised us with a delightful bottle of chilled Devaux French Champagne. Mmmm, délicieux!!! They followed us to the Hilton in Scotts Valley and we toasted our departure and planned for future get-togethers.
Slept well last night and we’re ready to go (well, maybe not Alfie, as he has gastrointestinal distress. Will send more updates soon!
