Planning For The Last Week




We went to Fleet Farm today to pick up a couple of items to get the house ready for the next set of renters, and as we pulled in to the parking lot, we saw this vehicle.  We immediately thought of Fillmore, from Cars:


                   “I’m tellin’ you, man, every third blink is slower”

We have yet to see Cars 2 in the theatre; we may take it in this week once everything slows down a little… but perhaps we’re misguided thinking things will slow down!  🙂 We’re finished packing in the kitchen except for a few last minute items.   An unexpected expense we hadn’t considered is the meals out we’ll be eating this week; plus the purchase of the disposable plates and bowls, which granted, isn’t a huge expense but it’s still one, nonetheless.  Wednesday we plan to eat at Tucker’s, a family and local favorite:

They have the absolute best popcorn, second only to Walt Disney World, of course.

Thursday we plan to eat at Pizza Ranch, one last time with Nick; he called it a last meal, but that just sounds so final, as we know we’ll be back to visit:

In our opinion they have the absolute best fried chicken that you can find.   The pizza is good, too, but definitely go for the chicken.

Friday, of course, is our departure date, and we plan to have our dinner in the hotel room. For road trips we always pack ham sandwiches from Festival Foods, and other assorted goodies for a picnic lunch; so we plan to do this again.  It’s tradition, and you don’t mess with tradition.  LOL

Right now our plan is to leave here by 3:15pm on Friday.  We anticipate that the movers will be done by noon, and our landlord comes at 3:00 to check us out.  We hope to be in Pleasant Prairie by 6:00, which will allow us to eat and perhaps check out the outlet mall as well.  We will have internet access all the way down, thanks to the hotspot activation on the cell phone, so we will be able to post blogs nightly and keep you updated.  We will also be posting updates using Twitter and Facebook along the way.

Enjoy your Sunday  ♥
