My sweet Partner is coming from Iowa with her adopted sister to pick me and one of our fur babies up from Georgia and take us back home for a few weeks.
I wanted to rent a vehicle to drive up there but the company that rents cars refused to take my debit card. I have to have a credit card instead.
My car isn’t reliable for a 2007. I think that’s what it is anyway.
The next transportation was the Marta Train in Atlanta. But carrying my cat is out of question. It’s a long drive and my cat has to stay in his carrier under the seat for 7 hours. No room to sleep, do his business, eat and move around. Plus he has to be a smaller cat weighing about 15 pounds. He’s close to 30 lbs. They would make us get off the train before we’d get to our home.
The next transportation idea was to fly. Heck no! I’m terrified of flying.
I thought she might fly down and she could rent a RV or something else and we’d take turn driving back.
That’s out of the question. So, she’s driving herself with her adopted sister to take turns.
We have two adult cats and two kittens at home and she is putting them in two different rooms with a lot of food and water.
I was concerned about that. What if they knock over their water or the heat goes off and won’t come back on.
I was hoping she’d have someone check on the fur babies at the most, once in the morning and once at night but at least once a day until we get back home.
We don’t know anyone we can trust to do that for us. So I guess we will have to trust the god/gods to protect them.
My sweet partner just lost her only full blooded sister, and the memorial is on the 12th. My Girl is so broken up. I hope this trip would help her a little bit.
I know the pain is very deep and she’d never recover from this.
Maybe we can go a lot of places and record those places with video and photos. Meet people along the way and interview them so they can tell a story or two about their lives.
I’m so exited to begin another chapter in my life with the one I love. I’ll be away from Georgia where my family lives for about 3 weeks. I really want to stay the rest of my life with her. But alas my dad doesn’t want me to leave until he dies.
I’m 68 years old. In a way that doesn’t feel fair to me. I might die before he does. And my life would seem like a waste by sitting there just waiting to go back home with my Girl. But we have to respect our elderly parents. I did promise him after all.
I won’t think more about that. I’ll go on vacation and enjoy my time with my Partner.
We are going to visit so many awesome places if we can. Superior Lake, her family’s cabin at their lake, and the Black Hills to begin with.
I just hope it doesn’t snow much. Because I won’t be able to get back home. That’s one fear I have in all of these plans.
If we get snowbound and I don’t make it to my apartment before 60 days, even though my rent is paid, they will kick my furniture and property out to the trash, and have my car towed off the property.
Well crossing my fingers and toes, whispering a few prayers and hoping all will turn out good for us all.
