This morning I did my last volunteer shift at the Moffatt-Ladd house.
Then I went on a last shopping trip down Bow Street, ostensibly to look for a gift for my friend Vodka, who has spent the month turtle-sitting my son's turtle. I bought her an olive green t-shirt and one of Sweet Grass Farms Fragrance Sticks sets. I picked the New England Woods scent. It's a heavenly blend of evergreen/balsam/pine smells.
I also bought a big navy-blue hoodie that says Portsmouth. For me.
Then I went home to pack. It's 67 degrees. We're leaving tomorrow at 4:00 a.m. to do the 17-hour drive back to Newtopia. School starts on Tuesday.
What's the good news?
