 Things I packed:

  • Wellington Boots
  • Warm Sweaters
  • Wool Socks
  • Winter Coat
  • Wishful Thinking
Things I packed and then unpacked when it became clear that I had gotten a little carried away:
  • Sweaters number 13, 14, 15, 16
  • Coat number 4
  • Scarves number 2 and 3
  • Hardcover books that I haven’t read in Chicago and only wanted to believe I’d read in Maine
  • Coffee mug
  • Coffee maker
  • The “just in case” skirt
  • The “just in case” heels that look fantastic and hurt like hell
  • The six-pack of diet coke for on-the-road caffeine emergencies
250 miles today.  Toledo, Ohio.  Didn’t leave until 3pm.  Made up for lost time on a clear and empty Indiana Toll Road.   Snow covered farms very picturesque along the route.  Crossed into Ohio in early evening.  
Am now at a Comfort Inn, which gives me a 10% discount at the Friendly’s Restaurant across the street.  I have a deep down dirty love for Friendly’s.  Their butter crunch ice cream is my kryptonite.


  1. So proud of you Anne! Go for your dream! Stay away from the Friendly ice cream – it’s not worth it! Miss you.

  2. ooh, friendly’s! did you have a fish-a-ma-jig(tm)?

  3. I can’t believe you unpacked the 6 pack of diet Coke. Anne, Anne, where are you? Who’s writing this blog?
