Last Walk with "Papa"
Wouldn't you know it? The temperatures went above 50 for the first time since December 27th and we're leaving to go home to Hawaii. While I packed and organized our things, Art "Papa" took KC for a walk around the village since the temperatures were finally comfortable enough (for Chicagoans).
Poor Tif and KC. We leave the house to return to Hawaii tomorrow morning at 5:30 AM and Ed leaves for a three week business trip on Monday. Ironically, part of his trip involves being in Hawaii which won't be fun since he'll be up to his ears in work in order to return to Chicago quickly. KC has gotten so used to constant, undivided attention that it will probably be difficult at first.
I'm so busy that I can't think about how painful it will be to say goodbye for the last time. I hold her and kiss the top of her downy head and there's a sharp prick to my heart. But I can't think about this now. That will happen tomorrow...
